Goat and Sheep Milk Cheesemaking with Linda & Larry
Dr. Larry and Linda Faillace are passionate cheeseophiles and food enthusiasts from Three Shepherds Farm, located in the heart of Vermont's beautiful Green Mountains. Over the past seventeen years, they have taught the art and science of cheesemaking to more than 2,000 students from around the world. Linda and Larry's cheesemaking adventures have taken them around the United States, and they were the first to teach traditional artisan cheesemaking techniques in Bermuda and Belize.
The Three Shepherds Farm cheesemaking courses focus on the principles of cheesemaking and how four basic ingredients are combined to make an amazing array of cheeses. The classes cover a plethora of topics including an in-depth study of milk itself (including a large focus on raw milk), a historical perspective of cheesemaking, the biology and biochemistry of making great cheese, the microbiology and magic of aging and ripening, cheese appreciation and wine/beer pairing, the politics of cheese, and much more. Larry and Linda bring a unique perspective to teaching that combines their academic background, personal exploration into food, and the importance of political food activism.
Many of Larry and Linda's students and consulting clients have achieved great success in their cheesemaking careers: top awards from the American Cheese Society, cheese businesses that have great acclaim from their customers, as well as home cheesemakers who delight their friends and family on a regular basis. When Larry and Linda are consulting, teaching cheesemaking, or selling their own cheese at the Mad River Green Farmer's Market, they can be found foraging for wild mushrooms in the woods with their two well-loved dogs.
Class takes place Wednesday, April 17th, 2013, from 10 to 3 p.m. Location is College of Marin, Novato. Tickets: $100 for CACG Members / $130 for non-members. Lunch and exquisite instruction included.
