Make Your Own Mozzarella and Ricotta


Turn your hand to making your very own mozzarella and ricotta cheese; the perfect day for all cheese lovers.

Our cheesemaker and dairy expert Paul Thomas will provide you with the knowledge and understanding to produce these speciality Italian cheeses from scratch.

During the course you will:

• Explore the importance of milk composition
• Learn the differences between raw and pasteurised milk
• Discuss the role of rennets and starters

At the end of the course you will go home with artisan cheeses made by you that day.
