Cheesemaking is an Artform
With most things in our family we follow traditional ways and recipes. With cheese making we are going back to the roots and are not using industrial methods and freeze dried cultures. Instead we are growing our own cultures and make cheeses how they were crafted for hundreds of years before industrial methods came along.
You will learn about the art of natural cheesemaking and walk away with the basic skills to start your own journey of natural cheesemaking.
Please note that this is a two-day workshop.
We will make over the course of the weekend:
- Probiotic yoghurt
- Shankleesh in olive oil (yoghurt cheese)
- Ice cream
- Feta in brine
- Neufchatel (unripened)
- A frying cheese like halloumi or paneer
What you get:
- hands on, practical skills & knowledge
- booklet with all the basics to get you started and all the recipes of the above dairy products
- 500g of probiotic yoghurt
- free starter pack of milk kefir grains to culture your cheeses
- some butter and cheeses made over the weekend to take home
- delicious and nutritious lunch on both days
