Soft Cheesemaking Workshop

January 9 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm



Soft Cheesemaking Workshop

Launch your cheesemaking adventure by learning to make soft cheese as well as how to use it in an extraordinary range of sweet and savoury applications in your home kitchen, with this 100% hands-on, fun workshop.

As our recommended introductory workshop, this is the one that opens the door to a whole new world of home cooking and entertaining – saving you money, boosting your creativity and, of course, treating your tastebuds! We guarantee that you will walk away armed with all the knowledge you need to start making your own gourmet cheeses at home, right away.

Your journey starts with a hands-on demonstration of how to introduce cultures to milk, plus a bit of heat and the right techniques of “turning the curd” and draining the whey.

You’ll see how unbelievably quick it is to make delicious fluffy, ready-to-eat ricotta in less than an hour, how simple the process is to create dreamy mascarpone, quark and fetta flavoured just as you like it!

Cheeses taught on the day include:

  • Ricotta
  • Fetta
  • Mascarpone
  • Quark (the “Philadelphia” / Boursin equivalent – just a little lighter and fluffier!)
  • Camembert
  • Greek Style Yoghurt

And what’s a day of cheesemaking without the full tastebud experience? At the Cheesemaking Workshop & Deli you certainly won’t go hungry. Cheese tastings, morning tea and a cheese inspired lunch are all provided as part of the workshop.

By the end of the day you will be surprised at how easy home cheesemaking really is.

Because we want to you get a full hands-on experience, workshop participant numbers are restricted. Once inspired, you can buy the same simple equipment, cultures and cheese hoops that we use in the workshop, from our retail store.

Our cheesemaking kits are created by us to contain everything you need to get started in your home kitchen. All notes from the workshop on techniques and measurements are provided and yours to keep.

Bring nothing but yourself and a love of cheese and good food!

*Please let us know at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements. Please note, this workshop requires a minimum of two people to run.
