Want to dive in to making your own brie and camembert but can’t spend a full day with us? This camembert and brie workshop the one for you! In just 2 hours, will guide you through the process of making these two popular cheeses from scratch.
We hardly need to sing the praises of brie and camembert – that decadent, soft and gooey texture speaks for itself.
There’s a long history between Brie and Camembert. Put very simply, the difference between brie and camembert is simply the French region from which they originally come. It’s also the size of the cheese: brie comes in a bigger wheel, camembert is a smaller wheel. But the creation process and ingredients are similar for both cheeses. With a little bit of magic in between.
We’ll go through all the details of the procedure from start to finish in this shorter workshop – from heating, adding culture and mould spores, to cooking and turning the curd, draining and hooping. We’ll also walk you through the brine bath, drying, growing, maturing and ageing.
You will leave the workshop confident and armed with the knowledge you need to create these beauties at home! All you’ll need is one of our Camembert and Brie Cheesemaking kit to get you started.
