Where should we go for a long weekend within a few hours of Chicago to learn the art of cheesemaking?

Try this. You too can become a master cheesemaker.

You may also try searching Google for "artisan cheese shortcourse" or just "cheese shortcourse." Many universities with agricultural colleges will offer these courses.

Here you go. Feel free to send me some after you've made it.

Maybe something here (btw, this film is great, I've probably watched it 10 times)

This place in Ellison Bay (Door County) apparently has cheesemaking classes, though their 2008 schedule isn't yet posted. If you haven't been to Door County, it's an excellent place for a long weekend (though it's a 5 hour drive from Chicago). I recommend the Wagon Wheel Resort in nearby Rowley's Bay.
