In this workshop Deb Gleason will teach you to make delicious dairy-free cashew-based cheese at home. You will learn all of the steps involved from making the healthy fermented quinoa-based culture to blending and forming the cheese. The workshop is a step-by-step demonstration on vegan cheesemaking followed by a cheese tasting. 100% vegan and gluten-free. Learn to make:

Cultured Cracked Pepper Brie – A melt in your mouth, creamy cashew cheese sensation that adds a gourmet touch to anything you serve it with. Serve on crackers paired with olives, nuts, pickled vegetables and fresh fruit, or slice it into salads, on grilled cheese or melted on a pizza.

Roasted Garlic & Fresh Herb Cultured Cream Cheese – A wonderful savoury cream cheese, flavoured with roasted garlic, fresh parsley, chives and thyme.  Once you have this in your kitchen you will want to spread it on everything!
