set for Aug. 20-22
Michigan State University (MSU) Extension will offer its popular artisan cheese-making workshop, Aug. 20-22.
The three-day class is designed for people who have never made cheese before and those who want to improve their skills to enter the cheese-making business. Participants will learn about milk quality, ingredients, various cheese-making processes, aging requirements and planning to establish a cheese-related business.
The workshop serves as a hands-on opportunity for participants to make cheeses in an educational environment. John Partridge, associate professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition and dairy food Extension specialist; G. William Robb, retired MSU Extension Ottawa County district dairy educator; and Barbara Jenness, of Dogwood Farm, will lead the courses.
The workshop takes place at the MSU Dairy Plant, 135 S. Anthony Hall, East Lansing.
A registration fee of $450 per person covers tuition, resource material handouts, all workshop supplies, lunches and refreshments for all three days. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Class size is limited to 20 participants.
