Artisan Cheese Making: Halloumi, Ricotta and Mascarpone
95 Clemens Road, Woodlands, NSW, 2575, Australia
16th November 2019
10:00am to 4:00pm
This six hour hands-on workshop will give you the skills for making an iconic Middle Eastern cheese that always draws the meat lovers away from the barbecued steaks to steal the vegetarian option. A fresh homemade Halloumi bears little resemblance to its distant shop-bought relative – its flavour is delicate, creamy and salty-sweet and when grilled or fried with garlic and zucchini can made grown men cry. Best consumed with red wine. Take some with you from a local winery after this fabulous day out.
During the workshop they will also make ricotta and mascarpone, two simple but delicious uncultured Italian cheeses.
The class takes place in the kitchen of our beautiful permaculture farm set amongst the rolling hills of the Southern Highlands. All equipment, ingredients and a yummy homegrown, home-made lunch provided, but bring along an Esky or large waterproof box to take home your cheeses.
