Cheese Making Before Your Eyes - Brent Zimmerman, Lime Kiln Farm, ABCheese (Italy)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Brent will demonstrate the process of making a whole milk ricotta cheese. It's too hard to source sheep's milk, believe it or not, so he'll use a cow's milk for the demo. But you'll be able to sample 3 different sheep's milk cheeses of different ages to taste the difference, thanks to Dancing Ewe Farm. He'll also explain the process of making a pecorino romano (sheep's milk) and how to use the left over whey to make a fresh Italian style ricotta (no acid added).
