Teachers' Cheese Making Workshops

Teachers' Cheese Making Workshops

These innovative and engaging workshops give teachers the skills and experience to teach their students to make cheese. In turn, students gain knowledge and an appreciation of the importance of dairy produce practices. The workshops are free to attend.

Each workshop runs for approximately six hours with an hour of cheese making theory which relates to the different styles of cheeses being made (camembert and blue).  This includes information on the starter cultures used and the chemistry of the processes involved and anticipated outcomes. This is followed by a practical, hands-on cheese making session on the maturation process that takes place over the following six to seven weeks.  

Participants are supplied with a cheese hoop and maturing container so they can mature the cheese made at the workshop.  Detailed notes on recipes and the make procedure and the equipment required are provided in a teacher information package on the day.

To participate in the Blue Cheese workshops you must have previously completed the Camembert class.  *Please note previous participants of the workshops who would like a refresher, may nominate to attend as an observer only.

Workshop dates:  Monday 13 to Thursday 16 February 2017
Nominations close:  Friday 9 December 2016
