Elderbritch and Two Classes in Lancaster
Elderbritch may be my new favorite name for a cheese — and my favorite PA Gouda of the moment. This sweet fall beauty is made by Elizabeth Stoudt, a Lancaster County cheesemaker who is part of the Stoudt’s Brewery family. The Stoudts are deeply into their ferment; they make beer, bread, and cheese. I was excited to discover the line of Stoudt’s cheeses at Greensgrow, the urban farm in my neighborhood.
Madame Fromage at Stoudt’s
On September 28, I’ll be taking my cheese mobile out to Stoudt’s to co-teach a cheese and beer tasting class with Elizabeth Stoudt. If you need an excuse to see some fall colors and imbibe, come join your fellow dairy lovers. The class is at 4 p.m., and for $65 smackeroos you get a a signed book by yours truly. Here’s the ticket link to the Stoudt’s Cheese’n Beer Class.
Madame Fromage at Lancaster Central Market
Earlier that day, at 11 a.m., I’m teaching a class at Lancaster Central Market — it’s more of a fall sampler, with lots of cheese, autumnal pairings (caramel, apples, candied nuts), and — if the space allows — I’ll fix you a hot recipe or two. The idea is to give you lots of ideas for fall entertaining. You won’t leave the class hungry; however, you may smell like onion jam. Hardcore cheese heads, this class is for you.
