Join Chef Karen McAthy, founder of Blue Heron, and author of The Art of Plant-based Cheesemaking in learning how to make cultured, fresh, vegan cheese! This three class course (held over three days), is homework driven, focused on getting students to make their own vegan cheeses from growing cultures to easy aging techniques!

Students will learn:

About lacto-fermentation and culturing (differences, how it works, etc)

The role of microbes in creating flavor and texture in plant-based cheesemaking

The difference between cultured and non-cultured plant-based cheeses, and the in-between

How to start and grow some key plant-based lactic acid cultures safe for use at home

How to choose a plant based medium for cheese making and what to think about when choosing

3 base/core cheese recipes

Basic aging method for at home plant-based cheesemaking

Review of key equipment, variables affecting cheesemaking, historical context of cheesemaking as a practice

The course is homework driven, with lecture/demo component.

Students are asked to bring their ‘assignments’ back to the second and third classes for review, discussion and comparison.

Students are asked to bring a notebook.

Key starter cultures are included in the course price, and a Blue Heron Cheese tasting concludes the last day of the course. Each course day, Chef Karen will provide a cheesy snack, a fun way to highlight different ways vegan cheeses can be used.

The last day of the course concludes with a plant-based cheese tasting of Blue Heron cheeses along with any of the cheeses students made and wish to share.
