This workshop is suited to anyone without any experience up to an experienced home cheesemaker. It’s a fun way to learn to make cheese or hone your skills.
So, what's included;
Morning: we will be making Brie/Camembert
Lunch: Lunch at The Wooden Farmer (included in workshop price)
Afternoon: we will be making Mozzarella
This includes adding starter to the pre-warmed milk, adding the rennet, cutting the curd, stirring the curds, hooping and turning, with instructions on how to finish off your cheese at home. You’ll make the cheese yourself in a small group, and at the end of the session take your own cheese home with you.
The session also includes a demonstration of ricotta, mascarpone and Greek style yoghurt which you’ll taste during the class. You’ll also taste a small selection of award winning Over the Moon cheeses!
You’ll be surprised how simple cheesemaking can be and how delightful it is to nourish your friends and family with food you’ve made yourself.
A clean apron, pen and paper, enthusiasm and lots of questions!
