Cheese is one of life’s great and versatile pleasures. In a grilled sandwich, cheese is at its most comforting. Paired with wine it shows layers of complexity. Cheese can surprise the palate too: a fresh cheese that bursts with grassy flavor, or warms with the essence of chocolate.

Our September slow session introduces you to making great cheese in your own home. Led by cheese-maker and teacher Scott Evans of Austin Homebrew Supply, this session will cover the basics of home cheese-making, offer a bit of cheese history, and discuss sourcing ingredients. Scott will bring some of his cheeses to sample, and participants will leave with their own starter that can be finished at home.

We will provide light refreshments, but feel free to bring a beverage or snack to share.

All Slow Food Austin Slow Sessions are free-of-charge; however donations will be gladly accepted.
