Got any…cheese? Carol Lake sure does and she’ll teach you to DIY!

Cheese.  That word makes us quiver and fall to our knees in weakness.  Cheese.  It’s what’s for dinner, lunch, breakfast, and even snacktime.  Cheese.  Are you sensing a theme here?  Cheese.

But, it’s hard to find someone that knows more about cheese and the art of making it than Carol Lake, owner of Simple Cheesemaking.  She made some amazing cheese at Dancing Dog Farm in New Hampshire and held classes, showing people how to make all different kinds of cheeses and homestead products.  Some of the classes that she has to offer are Beginner Cheesemaking; Parent & Child Cheesemaking; Simple Soft Cheeses of Italy (mooz, straciatella, bocconcini, and burrata); Simply Mozzarella; Jazz, Cheese & Wine; a Full Day Beginner Workshop; Yogurt, Butter & Kefir; and more.
