Ricotta Cheese Making and Pairing with Butter Beans – 7:15 pm

Affinage 101 with Krista Jacobsen, Caves Assistant Manager, Murray’s Cheese – 8 pm
Milk is a raw material capable of yielding hundreds of different cheese varieties. Once a cheese is made, it’s up to the affineur to direct its development. In this talk, learn how “cheese day care” critically influences the final product. You can even taste an example straight from the caves!

In an effort to create a one-of-a-kind product from New York state resources, Murray’s Cheese developed a cheese known as Stockinghall. Learn about the process of developing a new cheese and the basics of cheddar making.

Tess McNamara, Director of Retail & Operations or Lucy’s Whey – All Evening
Tess will be on hand all night to discuss the role of the cheesemonger in caring for and sometimes triaging cheese, how understanding the basic tenants of cheese science is essential to the job, and how cheesemongers help consumers navigate cheese care at home.
