More about this
This special voucher is redeemable against a ‘basic cheese-making’ course at The Courtyard Dairy. The voucher will be sent to you, for you to give to the lucky recipient. Then all they need to do is book for a course on a date that suits them – dates are released online and via email three months in advance. (A course with eight-places is run each month.)
The course runs from 9.30 am – 3.00 pm, and includes lunch.
The course is detailed and covers all the basics of cheese-making, combining a hands-on approach with some theory classroom work.
The subjects covered include: milk composition; use of rennet; selecting and using ripening cultures and starter bacteria; setting the curd; cutting, draining and stirring the curd; moulding, milling and pressing the curd; and cheese ageing. You will make two types of cheese: hard ‘Cheddar-style’ and soft ‘lactic’.
The course also includes three recipes to take away, plus additional course material to give you pointers about sourcing equipment for both home and commercial use, and further learning.
Each course is for up to eight participants, with each participant using separate cheese vats and moulding equipment to ensure everyone gets a full experience. The course is held at The Courtyard Dairy.
The voucher is valid for 18 months.
