Soft Cheesemaking Workshop Byron Bay

November 3 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Byron Bay Cheesemaking

How to make Soft Cheese with The Cheesemaking Workshop

Our most popular, entry-level workshop! The Soft Cheesemaking Workshop truly unlocks a whole new world for home chefs, foodies and family kitchens.

Over the course of this 100% hands-on day, you will make your own gourmet soft cheeses and see how to adapt them into a multitude of savoury and sweet dishes.

Taught by home cheese makers, for home cheese makers. We use simple tools in a process that has been modified for a home kitchen environment.

We guarantee you will leave equipped with all the skills you need to make your own gourmet cheeses at home. As well as creating all that delicious cheese, you will save your household money, plus unwanted supermarket additives, plastic packaging and food miles in the process!

Cheeses taught on the day include:

  • Camembert
  • Fetta
  • Ricotta
  • Mascarpone
  • Quark (a light form of cream cheese that makes fluffy, dreamy cheesecakes and Boursin-style soft cheese)
  • Greek-style yoghurt – at a quarter of the cost of buying it at a supermarket!

Bring an appetite – because cheese tastings, morning tea and a cheese-inspired lunch are all provided, as are workshop notes describing each process in detail.

Participants almost always finish this workshop telling us they are amazed at how easy home cheesemaking really is. When you think about it, milkmaids have been making cheese in mountain plateaus for centuries, it surely can’t be that difficult in a modern kitchen. We say it’s easier than baking a cake – plus the results are far more versatile than a cake!

All equipment, cultures and complete cheesemaking kits are available for purchase on the completion of the workshop.

Class numbers are restricted to ensure hands on experience. Please let us know at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements so we can adjust the menu accordingly.
