Please join HKS in partnership with Jessica Keahey, the “Big Cheese” behind Sweet Freedom Cheese, to learn the fundamental ingredients used in all cheeses, basic milk composition characteristics (and its importance in cheesemaking), and how to select quality milk. Participants will learn about the differences that separate cheese varieties, as you taste your way through fresh, soft-ripened, bloomy, washed rind, hard, and blue cheeses.  Enjoy your cheeses with a selection of breads/fruits/nuts as well as wines picked and paired to the cheese you will enjoy. You’ll leave confident in how to identify, select, store, cut, and serve fine cheeses as well as what accoutrements go best with each!

*All class ticket sales are final. No refunds or credit transfers to other classes are available.*​
