Did you know you can easily make great cheese at home from whole milk? The St. Louis Public Library partners with Slow Food St. Louis to show you how incredibly simple it is to turn milk — in this case, whole organic milk from a local farm — into delicious and healthy cheese.

Join Steve McGehee from Slow Food St. Louis as he leads an evening of Cheesemaking. Learn how to make Farmer’s Cheese in less than an hour using only three ingredients. Using one gallon of milk you will create one pound of Farmer’s Cheese. There will be a variety of herb cheeses made the same way to sample. This Slow Food tasting will last approximately an hour and participants will go home with the recipe to make their very own cheese!

Steve McGehee is a St. Louis native who spent 30 years traveling around the world studying birds. He returned 4 years ago to take care of his parents. He has spent the last 5 years testing milk from Missouri and Illinois. He is on the Board of Directors of Slow Food St. Louis and The Center for the Study of Tropical Birds. He has eaten homemade cheese in 10 different countries.
