November's Cheese of the Month is Sage Derby!
Join Master Cheesemaker Gary Colles and the Ely Folk School as we make a new cheese from scratch each month.
Have you ever heard anyone say that the moon is made of green cheese?Well, that may or may not be true, but this green cheese sure is dreamy. Sage Derby used to be made only at harvest time and for holidays and special celebrations, but these days, thanks to its popularity, it is available year round. This cheese includes sage leaves, originally used for its supposed medical properties.
Join us in the rewarding practice of making cheese from scratch under excellent tutelage with fine company. You will certainly learn something new and although you will not leave the Zoom class with a final product, the end results will wow you!
You will receive the recipe and the supplies list with ample time prior to class. Please be sure to fully read the ingredients list and reach out with questions on where to find any lesser-known ingredients. After class, your cheese will require additional care prior to consumption.
