LET’S MAKE CHEESE
First taught to make cheese almost 20 years ago (and having also undertaken training in commercial cheese manufacture) qualified teacher Louise Talbot combines her passion for cheese and teaching others new skills, at her Cutting the Curd Cheese Making Classes.
Mark at the Food Sorcery is delighted to have the opportunity to bring Louise to Manchester for this entertaining and informative day!
Having grown up on her parents’ family farm in NZ, Louise has a natural affinity with the land with a heart very much in the country. Some of her happiest childhood memories include carrying enormous trays of home baking across the farmyard for shearers' tea breaks, eating charred baked potatoes dripping in butter after a controlled fire had roared through stubble fields and the sounds and smell of Grandad Alexanders’ milking parlour and docile jersey cows.
This workshop is a good mix of demonstration and hands-on and you'll make Halloumi and mozzarella, plus watch a demonstration of mascarpone and butter being made – both to be sampled with a tasty lunch.
The session focuses on how you can repeat the process at home using raw farm or supermarket milk, vegetarian rennet and basic kitchen equipment.
What you will learn:
Hands on cheese making - you will make mozzarella and most importantly, learn how to put the squeak into Halloumi!
Louise will also demo the art of mascarpone and butter making – which you'll then enjoy for lunch.
