Reviews for: Alpine Dairy Cheesemaking Classes of St. Louis, MO Cheese Making Classes with Merryl Winstein

Merryl gives you more than your money's worth in her cheesemaking class. You and a group of others will get to watch as she takes you through the steps of making several kinds of cheese (which you get to taste) and sample other cheeses as well.
I can't wait to make my own cheese. I went from the class this afternoon right to the store to buy the rest of the supplies I needed to make cheese. She has the hard to find items for purchase (as well as raw goats milk to make the best cheese) after the class, as well as a great book. You get several handouts included with the cost of the class.
Merryl answers all your questions, and is very friendly. I met some great people with similar interests.
After the class you can even visit the goats!

If anyone is interested about having a little piece of farm in the suburbs, this is the person to know! Do also take her cheese making classes - my mom and I thoroughly enjoyed the class we took and are now successfully making cheeses.
Great cheesemaking class!

The class was great and very informative on the history, basics and specifics of cheesemaking. I especially appreciated the broad perspective of possibilities presented. She made you confidnent that you couldn't really mess up when making cheese........it will still be good and homemade. Lots of "hand-on" participation and lots of effort put into having available the cheeses at various stages so you could actually SEE and TOUCH (and taste) what to expect at each step. Met a lot of very interesting people too! Lots of exchange of ideas in the area of sustainability, etc. Very personal, creative.....I went home and made cheese that same week!!
