Tanja and Verena are seasoned cheese artisans with a combined wealth of experience. Their practical, no-nonsense philosophy towards good cuisine infuses their cooking and baking techniques. In this popular Swiss-Style Hard Cheese workshop, they aim to dispense with the common misconceptions about cheese production and impart valuable insights they've learned throughout their lives.

During a two-hour workshop in Riverside's commercial kitchen, attendees will have the chance to taste a variety of cheeses prepared beforehand by Tanja and Verena. The session promises not just a sampling of these homemade delicacies but also an introduction on crafting them. Participants can anticipate leaving the session able to recreate Swiss-Style Hard Cheese in the comfort of their own kitchens, inspired to play with the basic components.

This workshop uniquely blends demonstration with hands-on learning—participants will alternate between observing the intricacies of cheese-making and engaging directly in the creation process.

Participants are encouraged to come with a friend, ready to indulge in good food, and leave with new-found motivation to craft cheese at home.

Limited to 12 participants. Bookings close Friday, 7th June at 2pm. Book Now
