15 July 2020 • Introduction to Home Cheese Making

What a fun class! Zippy, informative and well organised. We learned how easy it is to make yogurt and cheese. I am confident I can not only whip up some paneer but also ricotta cheese. I will wow friends and work pals with the easy to follow homemade baked ricotta recipe. Thank you Tanya :)


14 July 2020 • Introduction to Home Cheese Making

I was introduced to this Cheese Making course by a dentist assistant and I thought immediately that this was the perfect date idea for me and my partner as we absolutely love cheese and make practically every meal with it. From the moment we walked in, we felt welcome and Tanya was very passionate about her craft and ensuring we had a COVID safe visit. While we didn't get to make cheese as such in this course, it left us inspired to create our own. Tanya went through the most simple of cheeses: Ricotta in this course and provided us with insight into what that could be turned into, which was Paneer. We got to try the fresh ricotta which was absolutely divine and also baked ricottas which was such a simple snack idea and very delicious. Tanya also showed us how to create homemade yoghurt with a machine that would come in handy with future courses. She also answered a lot of questions that people had about different types of milks that could be used, temperature and vinegar quantity variations and so much more. She was just so excited about her craft it was infectious. The following day we purchased the Brownes Full Cream Milk as she suggested and we made our own ricotta, which we then pressed into our McGyver'd cheese hoops (plastic take away containers with holes stabbed in them!) The results were spectacular and we were so excited to share our creation so we had the Panak Paneer Curry recipe that was provided in our booklet and we had to agree that it was best curry we had made! We wanted to share but we ate it all. We have now booked in our next course, Haloumi! So we're both very excited to learn more about the art of cheese-making. If you're a cheese lover, do yourself a favour and book in. I guarantee you will learn something!


14 July 2020 • Haloumi Cheese Making Course

My grand daughter and I recently participated in the Haloumi Cheese Making Course, facilitated by Tanya. Obviously very experienced, she was able to engage her diverse audience in a friendly, enthusiastic manner and we soaked up knowledge in the bright, airy centre. I was intrigued by the whole process. The afternoon was further enhanced by our take home of delicious Haloumi Cheese while was speedily consumed by family and friends. What an enjoyable experience!
