Cheese Making Courses - How to make Cheese

Our artisanal Cheese Making workshop is ideal for the home Cheese Maker and anyone considering small-scale commercial cheese production.  In four fun-filled days, you will learn how four ingredients and basic kitchen equipment can be used to create dozens of exquisite cheeses. By the end of the class, you will be able to pick up any cheese recipe and know how to successfully make that cheese.

The Workshop itself is USD $550.00, but to make it all a bit more affordable, we are offering a highly discounted, all-inclusive package for your stay at the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge.
