Have you ever wondered how cheese is really made and if you can do it at home? Well now you can find out with our  range of full 1 day courses  short evening or afternoon classes and weekday classes that teaches you the art of cheese making at home without the need for any special equipment (a bucket, cloth and colander). We will provide all the equipment, milk and starters for your experience – you just show up. We can also have available packs for you to take home e.g. milk and rennet etc so you can develop your own cheese.
For all course types,  dates and availability please scroll to the bottom of the page.
Our full day course runs from 10am (coffee from 9.30am) - we aim to finish by 4pm. We will teach you a bit of the science of cheese making but mainly it is a fun practical day. There will be lots of time for questions and discussions.

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.
Course notes and recipes will be provided as will ongoing support should you need us. 
A catered vegetarian lunch (with cheese of course) will be served at an appropriate break time.
And as this is a food course we will be stopping mid afternoon for homemade cake and drinks
Please wear robust closed in shoes and no jewellery (we don’t want to be searching for engagement rings in the cheese curd) and can I ask no strong perfume as the scent molecules can taint cheese (Chanel No 5  is a great perfume but not in a mozzarella).

What people say:
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.
