05 October 2020 • Introduction to Home Cheese Making

Both Maureen and I had a most enjoyable time at The Cheese Maker Class on Sunday morning. From nice coffee to start the day, to an easy to follow and understand introduction to home cheese making with ricotta, yoghurt and paneer. Tanya was very clear and easy to understand even for some one with poor hearing and very clear in what was required to produce each of the products and what she had combined with them to make the yummy products that we tasted. We have just completed our first try at yoghurt and while not quite up to Tanya's level it is very tasty and a good replacement for store products. Thank You Tanya for an excellent Sunday morning and looking forward to the next course and expanding our knowledge to other cheeses.

Thanks so much for today's excellent introduction to cheese making. I've already rushed home to start making paneer for this evening's Indian dinner. I love the relaxed nature, informative demonstrations, and delicious treats. Highly recommend!

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 :)
