Learn to Make Paneer: Live Online

with Gary Colles


Thursday, October 14, 2021

Tuition: $40

October's Cheese of the Month is Paneer! 

Join Master Cheesemaker Gary Colles and the Ely Folk School as we make a new cheese from scratch each month. 

Paneer is a key ingredient in many of your favorite Indian dishes, but how much do you know about this mild cheese? Traditionally eaten fresh and cubed, although paneer has a variety of uses. Paneer is unique as you don't make it with rennet - instead you curdle an acid to make a soft and fluffy cheese. 

Join us in the rewarding practice of making cheese from scratch under excellent tutelage with fine company. You will certainly learn something new and although you will not leave the Zoom class with a final product, the end results will wow you! 

You will receive the recipe and the supplies list with ample time prior to class. Please be sure to fully read the ingredients list and reach out with questions on where to find any lesser-known ingredients. After class, your cheese will require additional care prior to consumption.
