Sheana Davis breaks down the barriers to cheesemaking, making it accessible, easy and fun with energetic, hands-on classes that teach participants how to craft a fresh, warm ricotta cheese that is ready to serve and enjoy within 90 minutes.

Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with locally crafted wine and an artisanal cheese tasting, allowing them to explore different types of handcrafted cheeses prior to creating their own.

Next, Davis leads participants in the interactive process of making a fresh ricotta cheese. All ingredients used are readily available in any local grocery and the cooking supplies used reside in most home cooks kitchens.

Participants work in a group to create the cheese: they pour the milk, ladle and scoop the curds, and within 60 minutes they have a delicious, fresh ricotta cheese ready to be enjoyed by the group.

Upon completion, Davis shares various seasonally inspired ways to serve the cheese, using local herbs, jams and produce. All participants leave with their own cheesecloth and ladles to continue the cheesemaking experience at home.

20150531-EpicureanConnection-CheeseClass-Sonoma-65Specialized classes are available, in which Davis educates participants in creating dishes with their newly created cheese, including lasagna, parfaits, gourmet grilled cheeses, and other epicurean creations. Guest cheesemakers are available to showcase their own cheeses and techniques.

Cheesemaking classes are perfect for team building activities, bridal parties, couples classes, girlfriend getaway weekends, LGBT events, EBT education courses, and more.
