Basic Dairy Culturing

  • Chattanooga WorkSpace 302 West 6th Street Chattanooga, TN, 37402 United States (map)

Together, we'll explore basic dairy culturing using simple, age-old methods to transform milk and cream into nutritious delicacies. Join's Danielle Shelton as she teaches the art, science and history behind a variety of simple dairy ferments! The hands-on workshop will cover clabbered cream, yogurt, kefir, and skyr. Everyone will take home a jar of kefir, as well as other dairy cultures to make at home. Of course, sampling different kinds of dairy ferments is all part of the fun. Participants will also receive handouts with a few different fermentation recipes.
