Lesson 7: How To Make Cheese Course | How To Find Cheese
Like an errant mouse, we’re always interested in how to find cheese. More to the point, how to find a great local cheese maker! Vivien Straus, who grew up on a dairy farm and helped build Straus Family Creamery, has the answer. Straus, who later went on to join the inordinately successful Cowgirl Creamery (a veritable cheese making powerhouse born in the postage stamp-sized town of Pt. Reyes), developed The California Cheese Trail. Just as it sounds, the CCT is a veritable who’s-who of California’s top cheese producers, detailing where to visit, sample, and learn all about cheese. In 2013, Straus even developed a mobile app for the trail (Android and iPhone), making a crumble of fresh cream cheese a mere click away. If you want to make cheese in this state, you better get yourself on this map! And if you are someplace else, you might want to see how Straus developed her map so you can too!
