One the great things about teaching people to make cheese is when I find out that they actually went home and continued to make cheese. In the Koshercurd cheese making workshop you will leave with wonderful cheese that you made, but when you get home you will find an ebook with many more recipes to continue what you have learned in the class.
This summer I was blessed with the visit of a couple that was traveling from the Shomron, and was looking for something fun to do. They had contacted me wanting to know if I would give them a cheese class. I told them that I would we scheduled the day they would visit. Well, I thought that it would be more fun if we could get a small group together and we were able to get a fun day together with a mini workshop.
Now after doing these workshops for quite some time, I know that many that have taken them have not continued on or if they did, they did not let me know. So when I get a phone call, or email from someone that was in the class and wants to make a cheese that was in the ebook that they received, then I know that they were bitten by the koshercurd nerd bug, and they have started a wonderful hobby.
The great feeling came on a Thursday. I received the phone call from C. She wanted to know if I thought that a Lemon dressing would go well with the Cherkesi cheese that she wanted to try to make. I told her that it would go great as the acidification of the cheese was created by Lemon juice. I just told her to make sure that she sends me pictures and that she enjoys the process of making this semi-soft cheese.
Well, I finally received the email that stated the following:
“Bh it came out awesome the dressing I made enhanced it and worked wonderfully it was gone within half an hour of being placed on the table a huge hit..”
Now you understand why I just get a great feeling when I feel that I actually helped someone be able to make a part of their life just a little bit more special and different.
Here is the wonderful Cherkesi cheese that was made by Chagit for her family’s Shabbat to be enjoyed by all that were there, I wish that was there as it looks wonderful.
Thank you for the great feeling and looking forward to hearing more about your cheese making.
