These one day workshops focus in on the techniques for making one or two main cheese types. I'll also show you how to make ricotta, mascarpone, quark and Greek-style yoghurt. You don't need to have any experience with making cheese to go home understanding the principles and practices of cheesemaking, ripening and maturation.

At the end of the workshop we'll give you instructions on how to ripen and mature your cheese at home. There's a few supplies you'll need to have when you get your cheese home; some hand sanitiser, a plastic container with a lid and a rack that fits inside the container. The container needs to be big enough to hold a tub of margarine.

Of course, while we make sure there's plenty of time for answering all your questions, we'll also talk with you about:
-The origins of cheese, starter cultures and rennet
-Home hygiene
-Sourcing milk for home cheesemaking
-Recipes and techniques for making cheeses at home
-Equipment - where to find it, how to make it
-Ripening and maturing cheese

What's included?
-A full set of course notes, including recipes and instructions
-Lunch, wine and coffee
-A hosted cheese tasting
-Your cheese, to take home to ripen, mature and devour

What should I bring?

-A pen to take notes
-Cash or cheque to purchase cheesemaking supplies (most people find $40 - $150 is sufficient)
