Hint: If someone emails you a question about your culinary school you should probably respond to it even if you a horribly classist person and don’t want to bother communicating with a poor person.
Your choice to respond inappropriately may come back to haunt you because poor people can publicly shame you just as effectively as rich ones.
The more you know.
My neighbors across the road make cheese. My neighbors to the right also make cheese. My horrible parvenu neighbors probably make cheese too. Cheese is everywhere.
What is that I hear right now? Oh, it is dairy cows.
I guess I should give in and learn to make cheese myself.
As America’s favorite culinary school reject, I’m considering applying for and rejecting entry into a cheese making program.
Local Cheese Making Classes
Local to me at least which means New Hampshire / Vermont.
Sterling College offers an intense program with the incredible Jasper Hill. It is around $3,000 and if I had that type of money hanging around I’d do it. I emailed the program for more information but so far they have chosen not to respond sufficiently to my inquiry.
Westminster Artisan Cheesemaking offers courses in cheese making that are not to far from and seem to be reasonably affordable.
New Hampshire Cheesemakers Guild offers a list of cheesemakers and in New Hampshire and some that offer cheese making courses.
When I was younger, skinner and far more pretentious, I did a study abroad in Bilbao, Spain. My primary goal was to become even more pretentious while avoiding the harsh realities of a state school education. I also wanted to learn Basque.
I spent a lot of time with my American friends in the neighboring and more pretentious city of San Sebastian/Donostia. It has been said that San Sebastian is the Rita Hayworth of Spanish cities and I would agree. It is chic, relaxed and incredibly gorgeous. It has amazing tapas and two of the best restaurants in the world. Naturally, being young and pretentiously stupid I had no idea of that fact until a decade after I left. Lame, right? If I can give you any nominally useful advice it would be not to be young and stupid because I missed out on some amazing culinary experiences because I was too set in my own pretentious way of thinking to experience the wonder around me.
Hello my beautiful blog readers!
My name is Gordon. I’m short, hungry and irritable. I will hopefully be filling this blog with wonder and enjoyable stories about the food I love to eat and the culinary schools I applied to and enjoy mocking.
