Sunday 11.00am-3.00pm | Led by Louise Talbot

How about stunning your friends and family by giving them some home-made cheese as a Christmas guft? We're delighted to welcome Louise Talbot from Cutting the Curd who, in four hours, will unravel the secrets of making cheese in your own kitchen. A qualified teacher with a passion for cheese and teaching others new skills, she will enable you to make delicious things, far superior to the equivalent products you buy in the supermarket.

"A very enjoyable day and so interesting to learn about the process and take home a delicious selection of cheese we'd made ourselves, Great course" . Alison.

This cooking class is a good mix of demonstration and hands-on.   Using raw farm or Supermarket milk, vegetarian rennet and basic kitchen equipment, you will make:

  • halloumi
  • mascarpone
  • mozzarella 
  • butter 

Fun, relaxed and informative, it is a total immersion in all things cheese and dairy. You’ll go home with a folder of recipes and theory – understanding the science of turning milk into cheese is important - plus a selection of cheese and butter you have made.  Along with all this, you will also have the skills and knowledge required to make a wide range of differenet cheeses, with techniques and tips for hard cheeses explained.

This busy hands-on session will include time-out for hot/cold drinks and homemade biscuits/cake and lunch, with wine or a non-alcoholic alternative..

All ingredients, equipment, aprons etc. will be provided.  Louise will have cheese kits available at £30 extra, for those who’d like to get started at home straight away

Please wear non-slip comfortable footwear.

The session is suitable for vegetarians and gluten free.  It is not possible to make it vegan or dairy free.
