Yahoo! Cant wait. Just booked me and a bunch of girlfriends into Cheese School. One email response from a friend said "sorry, cheese making just doesnt ring my bell but catch up soon". My head went 'whaaaat?!' how could anyone not think that this would be just the best, most fabulous way to spend a whole day...elbows...well, elbow deep in milk and rennet, making lovely soft mushy pungent stretchy and hopefully very tasty cheese. I have been planning on doing something like this for years with some equally passionate cheese loving friends but we never found a place to do it that didnt require a whole week and a thousand bucks or so until now. Udder Delights have been running these classes for just a few months now which fit in perfectly with my baby growing and apparently with the cheese makers too. Udder Delights is located on the main street in the pretty little German town of Hahndorf which is just 10k from home and make really high quality goats milk cheese product ( and my favourite, a marinated chevre). A whole day of cheese making, lunch and wine included for $120 buckaroos and you take home all cheese made, hoops, rennet and hopefully lots of knowledge so its a fair swap i think. I have given myself this week off from The Thing, guilt free, just to enjoy this first burst of spring with the boybean and get a good start on the pizza oven. So , i will keep you posted on the cheese front and hopefully, i will remember to take my camera!
