Without cheese, macaroni would have no friends, and humans would never know what the moon tastes like. Celebrate curd culture with this Groupon.
$34 for Cheese-Making Class for Two ($69 Value)
On Saturdays and Sundays, students settle in at tables arranged in an open rectangle. In the middle, Chef Dan explains and demonstrates professional techniques for making cheese spreads, blocks, and crumbles. Every recipe starts from scratch and yields edible treats, which are served with crackers. If desired, guests can bring their own wine. At the end of class, couples go home with a cheesecloth, milk, and an instructional DVD.
Students in 60- to 90-minute classes at the Cheesy Gourmet learn how to make bagel-ready spreads, sliceable block cheeses, and crumbly feta using nothing but cheesecloth and a splash of milk. Participants can snack on provided cheese and crackers or sip wine they brought themselves as they watch Cheesy chefs demonstrate techniques inside a quaint kitchen painted robin’s-egg blue. After the class, guests leave with enough cheesecloth to make their own cheeses or dairy-based paper-maché art projects at home.
