Have you ever wondered how you make fetta, ricotta, paneer, yoghurt or sour cream? Are you ready to feel proud about the beautiful gourmet food you’ll produce at home, whilst knowing exactly what’s inside the cheeses you create, having avoided the sugars, the additives, the preservatives as well as the huge cost factor by creating them at home, just the way you like it? Watch the people you love “Ooooo” and “Ahhhhh!” over artisan made gifts of ribboned jars, filled with garlic or chilli fetta immersed in herbs and aromatic spices, or tall jars of labneh; creamy mini hand rolled yoghurt cheese balls, lovingly bathed in infused oils. And why wouldn’t you share your cheese love, when a quality gift can be made with love for less than a dollar!

You know…there’s nothing like the smell of warm, fresh, creamy ricotta curds whirling in a pot, waiting to be scooped up and nestled on a rusty Ciabatta loaf blessed with lovingly drizzled Western Australian honey. Or a swirl of prosciutto, a twist of freshly cracked pepper and hand torn aromatic mint. Decadent, and truly artisan. Can you believe your Masterchef canapé like this can be ready in less time than it takes to buy ricotta from the store..?

Start thinking about those ricotta and paneer recipes, and how you'll devour your fetta...perhaps you'll share your fetta around a table with friends, or on a date at home…passionately pulled apart over slow roasted rosemary infused lamb and crunchy oven roasted potato...Greek mezze style.

Yoghurt is a glorious thing. Warm stewed compote of seasonal fruits laced with cinnamon sticks adorn it…Bircher muesli loves its creaminess and breakfast smoothies want to marry it. Its probiotic richness makes us feel all loved up and good inside. We make ours with no added sugar, but when we’re feeling saucy, we make it with chocolate. Ohhhhh, yessss! Turn your yogurt into a sin free chocolate dipping sauce for your juicy red strawberries, summer bananas or perky peaches. It’s our secret but we’ll be sharing it with you because we’re all about sharing the cheese love.

This course is an absolute classic and great foundation for any home cheese maker so Book now!

What a day! Fun, informative and inclusive.. I enjoyed it very much. Joanne was thoughtful and thorough, which made understanding the processes easy. I’d recommend it to anyone

I love these cheese making classes. I always feel accomplished and confident to go home and make a new style of cheese. Tanya and Joanne have a great team, provide a fun and informative class. Do yourself or your favourite cheese lover a fabulous favour and have a go.

Joanne was knowledgeable and engaging. She knows her cheeses and she enjoys sharing. Classes are informative yet casual. Lunch from Lamont was lovely. It’s an expensive day when you add up course fees and equipment to continue making cheeses at home - not for anyone on a budget
