New Date! One-Hour Dairy-Free Cheese Tasting and Meet-And-Greet with Claudia Lucero

Taste some yummy dairy-free cheeses and meet the author of this super user-friendly cookbook!

This event is a meet-and-greet, no formal program where you can taste recipes from the book and ask the author questions in a casual setting.  

There is also be a full ticketed class later on this date at Mise En Place.  Check out the next event listing!

Finally, anyone embracing a dairy-free lifestyle (including vegan, paleo, or allergen-free) can make and enjoy the savory goodness of cheese—in one hour or less. 
In ingenious, step-by-step recipes, traditional cheesemaker Claudia Lucero shows how to make 25 delicious plant-based kinds of cheese using your choice of seeds, nuts, and vegetables to achieve rich flavor and creamy texture. There’s buttery Golden Swiss made with cauliflower and tahini paste—and a Brie made of cashews (or zucchini and potatoes), with a bit of truffle oil to capture its earthy essence. One-Hour Dairy-Free Cheese also shows how to make spreadable cream cheese, grated Parmesan, a smoky Cheddar, and even gooey cheese sauces.
PLUS, techniques for making rinds, cheese plate pairings, tips on food allergy substitutions, and a recipe to highlight each dairy-free cheese: Stuffed Shishitos, Cucumber Maki, Creamy Zucchini Noodles, Spicy Beet Salad, and more. It’s a whole new way to indulge in the impossible-to-resist pleasure of cheese, no matter what your dietary restrictions are.

Claudia Lucero is the entrepreneur behind and DIY Cheese Kits, which she sells through Etsy and specialty food shops. She also developed the home cheesemaking kits for Williams-Sonoma’s Agrarian product line.
