Cheese and Chocolate are my two weaknesses so when I discovered that The Craft & Co where putting together a cheese making workshop, I had to book myself in, pronto!

Hosted by Gerard Callanan from the Little Yarra Cheese Company, attendees learnt the techniques on how to make Ricotta and Romano Cheese. The workshop was not only instructional but practical as we all got turns in mixing the ingredients which consisted of milk, cream, stater cultures, lipase powder, rennet and other lactobacillus bacterias.

Before scooping out the curds to make the Ricotta we all headed downstairs for a break and had a menu pairing paddle board of similar style cheeses to what Gerard was making on the night, accompanied with a tasting of wine, spirits and beer. Simply YUM!

Once back upstairs and feeling satisfied by the yummy cheeses and wines we just devoured, Gerard was ready to demonstrate how to scoop out the curds to make the Ricotta, (which by now had already separated) and ready to go into the cheese baskets and drain. If you enjoy your Ricotta a little more salty just cover with salt and allow to dry in the fridge, until firm turning every 4-5 days.

Armed with all this knowledge and instructional booklet by The Craft & Co, I'm ready to start making my own cheese! So if you love cheese like I do, you will love this workshop.

Ooooohhhh, lovely! Fresh cheese just tastes so good! I've often made cottage, but would love to be able to make the other cheeses. Thank you so much for sharing this.
