A hands-on cooking class. Class includes a guided goat cheese tasting, recipes, cheesemaking basics and advanced techniques; each student will leave with their very own (heartshaped!) cheese.

Want to make your very own extraordinarily fresh goat cheese?! Join the San Francisco Milk Maid as she shares her love for home cheesemaking by teaching her recipe for the most delicious chèvre we've tasted. You'll earn where to source good milk, the science of coagulation works, and you'll leave feeling empowered to personalize her recipe using different cultures and flavorings.

Louella Hill, aka The San Francisco Milk Maid, first encountered cheesemaking while on a sheep farm in Tuscany over a decade ago. There she realized she could be part of the process all the way from sunlight to dinner plate. She never turned back. She's trained in Europe and the US though now works mainly with a 5-gallon pot in her own kitchen. Her forthcoming book on home cheesemaking, Kitchen Creamery, is due out by Chronicle Books this year. Visit her at http://www.sfmilkmaid.com/
