For The Love Of Cheese At Gourmet Warehouse

17 Sep

If you love cheese and have thought about making your own, Gourmet Warehouse has a weekend of cheese making coming October 5th and 6th. Personally, we LOVE cheese, but we have to say we haven’t ventured into cheesemaking. What we are seeing is quite a number of cheese making workshops being offered and they are popular and workshops do sell out quickly.  Now the cheese we are referring to is the real deal ie. with cow’s milk, not a nut cheese which we’ve tried and they are fabulous in their own right but to be clear these workshops use cow’s and/or goat’s milk.  If you are interested in trying your hand at cheesemaking, this coming October, Gourmet Warehouse has a number of workshops to choose from. We’ve set out a few of them below.  Note, if you are looking for a vegan option, check out their class happening October 23rd. Again, these classes tend to sell out fairly quickly. So if interested, we recommend getting registered early.

PreservingSummerBountyAugust8Our friends at The Uncommon Café, 477 Powell Street, have a workshop lined up this August that will help preserve some of your summer bounty. On August 8th, Valentine Kitamura owner of Tartine Maple will lead a class at The Uncommon Café. If you don’t know this space already, it is great little café and commissary located across the street from Oppenheimer Park. In this summer workshop, Valentine will show you how to make some delish preserves while also teaching you some basic preserving techniques. Some of what you’d be making in this upcoming class include Apple & Jalapeno Jelly, Vodka Drunken Cherries, Salsa and Canned Peaches. Did we mention these folks know how to do workshops? While learning about preserving, sip on a glass of wine during the class along with a snack or two. You will go home a 4 oz jar size of each item made and printed recipe cards. The cost of this class is also $65 per person. You can book your spot online via Eventbrite. If you haven’t already checked out their classes, we encourage to pop down and give them a try.
