Private Cheesemaking Lessons and help support a new farm/cheesemaker

Hello everyone! I am offering private cheesemaking lessons through my kickstarter fundraising project... go to kickstarter.com and look for Broken Shovels Farm in the food section. Lessons will happen in Denver, CO. Take a look, I specialize in french bloomy rind cheeses and greek style strained yogurt, and do some hard cheeses, as well. I will be giving the lessons in a home kitchen setting, rather than commercial kitchen. Thanks! …See More
