The ONLINE Vegan Cheese Workshop (1 week) is a journey through the world of making vegan cheeses that are analogues to versions of popular cheeses found around the world. The workshop is offered over 5 days, 3 hours a day, that provides intensive focus on the processes of making plant based non-dairy cheese. ONLINE students are given 6 weeks to create and present online their completion of each assignment.

Special techniques include: quick setting, rapid fermenting, making meltable cheeses, aging and rind finishing techniques, aromatic and flavoring layering and creating a variety of cheese textures. Course includes not only making popular cheeses but also how to elaborate popular cheese dishes.
