About the Event

Looking for a fun and informative way to learn more about cheese-making? Look no further than Riverside's upcoming cheese-making workshop!

Your workshop tutors, Tanja and Verena, both have decades of experience in cheese making and processing. They are passionate about good food and have a "no fuss" approach to cooking and baking of all kinds.

For this 2-hour session in Riverside’s commercial kitchen, they will make some cheese in advance for you to sample and compare. Participants will then be taken through the process of making a Swiss-style hard cheese. The goal is for participants to go home feeling confident and empowered to follow to follow the recipe in their own kitchen and experiment with humble base ingredients. As a bonus, the workshop will also cover how to make Paneer, a type of soft cheese.

This session is semi-hands-on, semi-demonstration – there will be times for you to sit down, relax and watch, and others where you can get right into it :)

So bring a friend and an appetite, and head over to Riverside for a cheese-making workshop that will leave you  inspired, increase your self-sufficiency and give you the ability to whip up some delicious homemade cheeses in your own kitchen!

Limited to 12 participants. Sponsorships available (just ask). Bookings essential!

This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (at education@riverside.org.nz) for any workshop questions or to discuss sponsorship options.
