Cheesemaking Classes Online

Kate Johnson, owner of “The Art of Cheese,” created online classes for people who are seeking lessons from a seasoned expert but are also too busy or too far away to attend a class in person.

The three online “Cheesemaking Made Easy” classes offer valuable instruction tailored to the skill level of the students. “Cheesemaking 101” is a free 20 minute class that touches on the basics of cheesemaking. “Quick & Easy Cheese” and “Intro to Pressed & Aged Cheeses” are intermediate classes that cost $19.98 individually and offer 50 minutes of instruction. The benefit of these courses is the access you gain to a skilled cheesemaker who also has years of experience instructing clients on the art of making cheese.
