Saturday's cheese/bread making workshop has come and gone and we want to say thank you to everyone who had a part in helping it come together as well as the 20 participants that came from all over Wyoming! We were so pleased to meet new people and make new friendships throughout the day.
It was a busy day at Diamond S that morning as Blaise and Emma registered everyone in the trusty wall tent (thanks Gene for helping set it up) and Trudy made sourdough biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast.
After registration class was split into two groups. Amelia's group stayed up at the house and learned the art of bread making. Each individual was able to get their hands dirty and knead some homemade bread. The end results were amazing and delicious.
Meanwhile, down at the barn, Kris and her class were busy learning how to make cheese. It was great meeting some of the participants, as several had made cheese before, and for many it was their first time. Hot pepper, garlic and chive, as well as a soft cheese ball were all prepared for the afternoons tasting session.
Along the way Kris also taught the students how to make butter, sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables. After a long day of learning all these skills it was time to eat (and drink)! It was quite a spread that the entire class had made and nobody went home hungry. The cheese that was made by the class, as well as the cheese that had been aging for months were all set out for everyone to try, paired with their choice of red or white wine of course (thanks Jess for the wine).
It was a great day for Diamond S Delights and we were so glad many of you could join us. We hope to continue events like this in the future, but in the meantime be sure to stop in our little store and pick up some delicious dairy delights. Thanks again to all that joined as well as all that helped!
