Cheesemaking Workshop Held at UW-RF

SEPT. 23, 2005--A three-day workshop will be held at UW-River Falls Nov. 8 - 10 for cheesemakers who are interested in making artisanal cheeses.

The workshop, "Turning Chaos Into Control: Milk to Artisanal Masterpiece," is coordinated by the Wisconsin Dairy Business Innovation Center and the UW-River Falls Falcon Foods Dairy Plant.

Participants will receive hands-on training and targeted instruction, based on questions that participants submit in a pre-registration survey. They will also learn how to use existing equipment to convert milk into an artisanal masterpiece and how to control of the production process. Participants will also receive specific tools and resources for artisanal cheesemaking.

Enrollment is limited to 35 people, and registration must be received by Oct. 25. Cost is $350 per person and includes all materials, breaks, lunches, an evening banquet and bus transportation to field sites.
