Mozzarella & Ricotta Cheesemaking Workshop
Join our curds and whey expert Jacqueline Bender as she demystifies the art of making two of Italy's most beloved cheeses.
We will make mozzarella and ricotta from bio-dynamic milk (or organic if unavailable) to be eaten at the conclusion of the class. Ricotta will be made from whole milk (paneer style), which we will roll in home-made dukkah (chopped nuts and spices).
The class also includes a discount of 20% on any kit or cheesemaking equipment you may purchase on the day.
So come and join Jacqueline and learn how quickly and easily you can make some fresh mozzarella and ricotta for dinner.
Jacqueline Bender has been educating cheesemakers for 6 years. She has lived and worked on farms in Victoria where she ran a herd of dairy goats and was responsible for the farm's weekly cheesemaking. Fresh goat's cheese such as feta, halloumi and chevre were the farm's speciality. She also makes alpine-style hard cheeses and mould-ripened stinky cheeses from cow’s milk. Cheesemaking is an integral part of her self-sufficient lifestyle, which includes keeping bees, chickens and small-goods processing.
