Stay Cheesy

There are certain things we should not have to give up during even the hardest of times, and we believe cheese is one of those things. If you've been bypassing the dairy section in order to save money, Cook's World's Home Cheesemaking Workshop may be a budget-friendly solution.

OK, we concede that $60 for one class (or $100 for two) is sort of counterproductive when it comes to pinching pennies, but think of it as an investment--remember that give-a-man-a-fish/teach-a-man-to-fish adage? Cheesemaker Mark Solomon is ready to teach you how to cheese. The class is divided in two sessions (though you aren't required to sign up for both), with the first day dealing with soft cheeses like Italian mascarpone, ricotta, and mozzarella and the second the hard stuff like cheddar, gouda, and blue cheeses. Once you know the ins and outs of do-it-yourself cheesing, you may never have to stroke the cheddar longingly then force yourself to walk away again. Cook's World, Mon., March 23, 6:30-9:30 p.m. and Mon., March 30, 6:30-9:30 p.m. $60 for one class; $100 for both classes
