Learn how to make a hard cheese that will be ready to eat in time for Christmas.


This will be our last cheese making workshop this season here at Riverside, as summer takes us into a time where milk is less abundant and ripening and storage can be a tricky business. After having covered naturally fermented cheeses earlier in the season, and a fully booked workshop in October, we are once again going to share with you this original swiss recipe.


And the best news is: if you learn how to make this cheese now, you can go home and make one in time for Christmas! What a great gift for someone you care about – or a delicous addition to your own table when family and friends come around.


In addition to tasting some homemade goodies, participants will be taken through the process of making the cheese, so that they can go home feeling confident to follow the recipe in their own kitchen and empowered to experiment with the base ingredients.


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 :)


Limited to 12 participants. Registration is essential.
