The Prairie Scholars, which formed in 2010, is a songwriting duet from the high plains of Texas currently living and performing in lovely Colorado. The Band is made up of husband and wife team, Andy and Jessica Eppler. Their hyper-prolific songwriting has been captured in multiple all-original albums which have received glowing reviews, both locally and internationally. With their focus on their community in Boulder County, The Prairie Scholars have worked hard to be a benefit to not only local listeners, but businesses as well, by driving tourism and out of town business into their beloved city of Longmont. The Longmont Times Call featured them in a story saying “The Prairie Scholars have been a community booster ever since they arrived from their native Texas several years ago.”
In this hands-on class you will learn to make Colby, an American original! Registration is required at www.theartofcheese.com. Colby, Havarti & Gouda are all varieties of washed-curd cheeses. They have a mild flavor and a moist texture. They are pressed and ripened like other aged cheeses, but develop their full aroma and flavor in just 4 – 6 weeks. We will make a simple and delicious Colby together in class, and taste samples and review recipes for Havarti and Gouda. At the end of class we’ll take you on a behind-the-scenes tours of the Haystack Mountain Cheese Creamery and you’ll get to take home a free log of their award-winning chèvre.
