CHEESEMAKING: GREEK FETA

All supplies included in class fee.

Instructor: Eduardo Rodriguez

In-person at VPC Campus

Learn to make a cheese that is believed to have originated more than 6000 years ago in Greece. Traditionally made from a mixture of goat’s and ewe’s milk every family would make their own unique feta and keep it in brine in their pantry. In this class, you will have hands-on experience working with the curds and pressing them into the molds to drain off excess moisture. The cheese squares are then salted and dried for a few days, before they are submerged in a salty brine where they are good for several weeks or months. After that, you can enjoy this cheese as a tasty companion for all your summer dishes!
