Queso Presto! Cheesemaking Workshop

with Eric Rector


Cheese making is so mysterious because it starts by turning a liquid into a solid. Cheese making also takes A LOT of time: usually a day of work just to get the initial stage of fresh cheese, then weeks/months/years of aging to change a bland white chalky lump into something completely different. In this hands-on workshop, local cheese maker Eric Rector -- from Monroe Cheese Studio -- will summarize 10,000 years of cheese making and show you how to make a quick and tasty cheese in an effort to describe milk’s “leap toward immortality.” All supplies will be provided and you will have the opportunity to sample the cheese you’ve made before the end of the class. (and bring home any leftovers!).

Instructor Eric Rector is a cheesemaker, Maine Cheese Guild member, and owner of Monroe Cheese Studio.
