Description

Learn to make three versatile Mediterranean cheeses with Jacqueline Bender, Bee Sustainable’s resident artisanal cheesemaker.

Join Jacqueline for an informative and tasty workshop. She will guide you through all the steps necessary to make feta, halloumi and whey ricotta from scratch.

We will use biodynamic cow’s milk (or organic if unavailable) purchased from our local organics store. No need to keep a house cow to make these cheeses, anyone can make them with quality purchased milk.

This class is a mix of theory and practical, as Jacqueline explains the chemical reactions that are taking place before your eyes. At the conclusion, we will taste the halloumi and ricotta made during class and some feta that Jacqueline has prepared earlier (as it takes several days to mature the cheese).

This workshop includes a 20% discount on any kit or cheese making equipment that you would like to purchase on the day.

Jacqueline Bender makes feta weekly from goat’s milk at the farm where she lives and works. 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. She has been educating cheesemakers for over 3 years.

This gave me confidence to try cheesemaking for myself, and explained several of the things that I was unsure about from online recipes.

Great workshop. Love the cheese. The Halloumi and Feta we made are some of the nicest I have had. I will certainly be making more at home. I can recommend the workshop as a fun and useful way to spend a saturday morning
