As an admitted cheese fanatic – This could be very cool. From a press release:

Fresh Cheese Making Class with Urbana Chef John Critchley
Guests will make their own cheeses, sample wine, cheese and charcuterie

What: Executive Chef John Critchley, who has created his own in-house cheeses at Urbana, will lead a class on how to make fresh fromage blanc, mozzarella and haloumi. The class will be held at the pizza bar and will include an interactive lesson during which guests will make their own fromage blanc, mozzarella and haloumi cheeses from scratch. Chef Critchley will engage participants in a discussion on cheese making while guests nibble on cheese and charcuterie and enjoy samples of wine. Guests will also be able to take home recipe cards so they can prepare fresh cheeses at home, as well as honey and marmalades to pair with their cheese. This is the first in a series of classes by Chef Critchley that will highlight the various techniques he employs at the restaurant. Forthcoming classes will include a lamb cooking demo in partnership with Border Springs Lamb (April 21) and a demo on chef’s favorite cocktails in partnership with lead bartender Obi Emenyonu (June 9th). In the fall, classes will continue with a knife skills demonstration, and oyster selection, shucking and cooking class in the winter.
