Well that was a crazy time (again). Who knew!
In line with new government advice as of February 22nd we intend to fling open our doors again to the cheese loving public and start running our very successful cheese making classes.
We want you to have a great and fun day but obviously things have changed, and we have put in place a few extra measures to ensure your safety.
This is a commercial food production space and we have always maintained the highest level of hygiene and cleanliness. All surfaces in this dairy; walls, tables, doors, equipment, handles etc are regularly cleaned and disinfected or steam cleaned.
Class sizes have been reduced to ensure we can all maintain social distancing.
During classes all the doors will be left open to ensure sufficient air flow and ventilation to the workspace area.
All guests will be offered face masks, gloves, handwashing facilities and aprons should these be still be recommended at the time of your class.
Any food will be ready in pre-packed boxed rather than our usual buffet style.
In the past participants have worked in pairs. This will only continue if you are part of the same family group or bubble. If you are attending alone, you will work on your own.
There is very quick Wi-fi and broadband if you need it. We will give you the Wi-Fi password on request, though we encourage cheesemaking not internet surfing.
We will assume that all participants will not have had any onset of any Covid19 symptoms or knowingly been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms in the previous 14 days.
The itinerary for the full day class includes:
- Refreshments on arrival
- An introduction to cheese making
- Milk tasting/comparison session
- Selection of cheese samples throughout the day
- Discussion and practical on maturing of cheeses with tips and hints
By the end of the day you will have made and will take home to mature a semi hard white cheese, a semi hard blue cheese, a lovely soft curd cheese and a small camembert style cheese that you can put in your fridge and mature to your own taste.
I just thought that I’d let you know that I did indeed enjoy the cheese-making course yesterday. More especially, I’d like to congratulate you all for what was clearly a very well thought-out and well executed day. I was impressed with the way that you had all the equipment and ingredients ready when they were needed, and in how we progressed from one phase of the course to the next without any obvious delay. There must have been quite a lot going on unnoticed in the background to make it all work so smoothly. Your approachability and willingness to answer questions was also much appreciated.
Please pass these comments on to all at Wildes.
