Plant-based Cheese 101

  • Municipal Winemakers 22 Anacapa Street Santa Barbara, CA, 93101 United States (map)

Join us for a relaxed evening with friends, sipping wine and learning the basics of making nut-based cheeses at home. More and more people are being drawn to a plant-based lifestyle but dairy is often the most challenging hurdle to get past. 

During this hands-on workshop, we’ll cover:

  • The simple ins and outs of a plant-based diet.

  • What a well stocked plant-based pantry looks like.

  • How to make very simple, dairy-free alternatives for parmesan, sour cream, ricotta and even a decadent triple cream style cheese using nuts and seeds and not much more.

  • Plus, we’ll sample a wide selection of plant-based cheeses available on the market.

Participants are encouraged to purchase a glass of wine upon arrival and will leave with freshly made nut-based cheeses, a recipe packet, ideas for simple dairy swaps at home and a better understanding of why 75% of the world's population is actually lactose intolerant. 


- For obvious reasons, this workshop is not suitable for any person with a nut, seed or legume allergy.
