Upcoming Cheesemaking Classes

I’m super excited to share some local cheesemaking classes with you. Mark Solomon, home cheesemaking extraordinaire, will be teaching two classes coming up at Mangia Bene Cooking School in Maple Leaf- Tuesday October 4 for soft cheeses and Tuesday October 11 for hard cheeses. Both classes are from 6:30-9:30 pm. Mangia Bene has four stoves so there will be opportunity for hands on experience. In the soft cheese class you’ll learn how to make seven different cheeses including mozzarella, ricotta, chevre and mascarpone. You’ll make some of the cheeses in class and learn how to make all of them using simple equipment you have at home. In the hard cheese class you’ll make a Gouda and learn the steps involved in making almost any hard cheese. You’ll taste a variety of homemade hard cheeses including Cheddar, Gouda, and Colby and learn what you need to know to make them in your own kitchen. In both classes you’ll learn some cheese chemistry and find out about sources of cheesemaking equipment and ingredients. For more information go to

  1. I’ve been looking forward to making this cheese ever since this post first came out. I spent the afternoon looking through my cheesmaking books and making lists of cheeses to make over the next couple months. This one is one is at the top of the list. I’ll take a picture and post it on FB when it’s ready :) Thanks
