Cheese Making Classes

£125.00


We are completely thrilled that the Guardian has listed us as one of the top foodie courses in the UK - read it here 
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 1 day course or short evening class 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 dates and availability please scroll to the bottom of the page
Our full day course runs 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.
'Well I've not had that much fun in a long time. We expected serious fuddy duddies but we got you two. Loved making the cheese and learning all about it. Hoot! Irene

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 
  • A Tour of the dairy and caves 
  • 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).
