On March 9th, Urban Market Forage participants were treated to a hands-on queso fresco making afternoon with Dave Potter and his daughter Kate, of Get Culture/The Dairy Connection. www.GetCulture.com
The afternoon started with a quick look around the store and the cheese making classroom. Get Culture is the retail location of Dairy Connection, a mail order supplier that works with amateur and professional cheese makers all over the country.
After making the queso fresco, participants were treated to a variety of cheeses, including an unusual (and very tasty) canned cheddar from Washington State!
Dave teaches a several classes around Madison and loves to share his knowledge, including the science behind the making of different cheese types. If you have ever been curious about making yogurt or cheese at home, this is the place to go!
