Luxury cheesemaking class at
The Addison on Amelia Island
January 12-15, 2024
Escape the winter cold in sunny Florida! We are thrilled to announce our third cheesemaking & cooking class at the beautiful Addison on Amelia Island.
Spend the weekend learning the secrets of cheesemaking. You will make cheeses to take home and share with your loved ones, and you will create some to be eaten fresh with your fellow students.
Enjoy the confidence you will have at the end of the class to make these cheeses in your own home.
Class includes everything necessary to make a variety of cheeses, breakfast on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, lunches on Saturday and Sunday, happy hours each evening, and a cheesemaking manual complete with recipes.
As a special for the 2024 class, there will be a class dinner at Burlingame Restaurant, and a pizza-making class and craft brew tasting at First Love Brewing Monday before departure!
Review from our 2020 Florida Cheesemaking Class!
We stayed at Addison House last weekend for an exciting weekend of cheese making! Three full days of exploring, making, and tasting all sorts of delicious cheeses. Lisa and Ron had decided that they didn't want to offer all the same sorts of things other local B&Bs were (weddings, baby weekends, etc.) and when the opportunity to offer this cheese making weekend appeared, they jumped on it.
The location is perfect - one block to the local farmers' market, easy walk to many of our art galleries and specialty shops, and the waterfront with restaurants, boat tours, and the visitors center (located in the old train station). Although we live on the island, we loved being able to walk to places we know - and to find new ones! The restaurant they recommended for dinner was one that we had never eaten at and we were very glad we had taken their suggestion.
Sitting outside - whether for breakfast or more cheese making classes - was lovely in spite of the colder than normal temperatures because the large porch, surrounded on two sides by buildings, opens onto a beautifully landscaped, interior courtyard with an amazing fountain.
The working fireplaces in the parlor and bedroom added a touch of warmth to the rooms.
Lisa and Ron have made some welcome changes to the Addison House over the past few years. It is clear from the warm welcome to the final friendly farewell that they care about the comfort of their guests
