Cheese Mastery Class: Lactic Cheeses

October 25, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join Creamery managing partner Aubrey Thomason for the third class in a series exploring the foundations of cheese. In this session, Aubrey will talk about the simplest (and most difficult to master!) form of cheesemaking: lactic cheeses. Lactic cheeses are made using little or no rennet to help firm them up. Instead, the lactic cheesemaking process relies on the natural progression of milk lactose into lactic acid, which then binds the proteins together to form curd. This process takes much longer, but the results can be stellar. This is the process that gives both Cream Cheese, as well as our delicious Lincoln Log. Join us on Saturday, October 25, 1pm, as we discuss the chemistry behind lactic cheese, and tasting the various cheeses made using this process.
