Soft Cheeses: Creme Fraiche, Fromage Blanc & Whole-Milk Ricotta
You’re invited! We welcome you to join us at Bella Luna Farms as professional cheesemaker Meghan McKenna guides us into the wonderful world of cheesemaking. In this class, we will craft a trio of European dairy classics:
- Crème Fraiche is the favored cooking cream of France—learn how to culture your very own from two simple ingredients.
- Another a French favorite, made with cow’s milk, fresh Fromage Blanc cheese is light and tangy with infinite uses in cooking, spreads and salads.
- Lastly, we will dabble further into the cheesemaking world with fresh, whole-milk Ricotta. Once you’ve made this cheese from scratch, you will never need to buy grocery store ricotta again!
A delicious lunch will be served midway through class, finished with wine and a dessert crostata that features our handmade Crème Fraîche or cheese and fruit from our orchard here at Bella Luna Farms. You will leave the class equipped with a host of recipes, plus the skills you need to recreate these cheeses at home. As a take home gift, you will also receive a lovely gift bag filled with your handmade cheeses and jarred Crème Fraiche.
