Lyndall and Mel recently travelled down to the Hunter Valley for the Cheese and Chocolate Festival held at Hope Estate.

After a successful first year in 2018, the Festival returned to Hope Estate for two big days in 2019. The fun included lots of cheese, chocolate, wine and craft beer with a ton of delicious food!

Each day began with home cheesemaking demonstrations on the main stage, followed by fully sold out 1 hour mini cheesemaking workshops. The workshops ran throughout the entire festival for those looking for a hand on experience.

Don’t worry – it wasn’t all work! We managed to sneak in a few little wine tastings and stock up on some amazing Hunter Valley wines while we were there.

Missed out on our workshops and demonstrations? Why not visit us on the beautiful Coffs Coast!? We run workshops year round and with over 10 years of teaching home cheesemaking, we can guide you in the right direction to creating your own gourmet cheeses at home.
