Cheese Mastery Class #5 – Cheddar

February 20, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Creamery Managing Partner Aubrey Thomason shares the history of Cheddar in this fifth session of the Cheese Mastery Class. Cheddar is the most well-known and popular of the milled curd cheeses throughout the Western world. The milled curd style was created in Britain, and is also used (sparingly) by the French. Aubrey takes us through beginnings of this ubiquitous cheese in the English village of Cheddar, the definition of the Cheddaring process, and it’s implications for cheese production in the centuries to come. How did a style with such humble beginnings end up conquering the western world? We will discuss milled curd technology, texture, and flavor, as we taste our way through some classic examples of this popular cheese style. Don’t miss it!
