How to make cheese



2 hours Class size 1 to 24 label $65


Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

In this engaging presention, through great demonstration you’ll learn simple ways to make handmade, great tasting cheese in your own home. Find out about the basics of cheese and yoghurt making and how to make your own mozzarella cheese using common kitchen equipment!

Making your own cheese and yoghurt at home is a handy skill to have – to eat well, save money and create something you’d normally need to buy! It’s a superpower!

There will also be Green Living Ausutralia equipment available for sale on the night (cheese making kits, supplies and equipment, plus copies of Valerie’s Book ‘Home Cheese Making in Australia’).

 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

A few recipes and step by step guide

Wine on arrival

Tastings of the Mozzarella made during the workshop, plus samples of Quark and Feta (Yummmm!)

Cheese making products and kits available for purchase during the workshop.

 

What to bring

  • Pen and paper to take notes!

Valerie has been a home cheesemaker and rampant foodie for 25 years and has a passion for fresh, organic, homemade foods. Valerie’s daughter Angie was born with chemical sensitivity in 1988 and this changed their lives forever. After struggling with food labelling laws, Valerie armed herself with the knowledge and skills needed to take back control of her family’s diet! Valerie became a well informed and conscious home cook and cheese connoisseur and delved into the science behind fermented foods. Valerie published her first book, Home Cheese Making in Australia, in 2016 and is currently working on her second book, Sugar Free Home Preserving.

Joanne has been fortunate to have travelled extensively around the world, gathering a wealth of knowledge and practical hands on experience in several fields. Using these skills, she has been able to invent a sustainable, energy efficient, life changing product, EasyOven. Joanne has created education programs in Design and Technology and the Sciences as well launching a new program in Australia, Unemployed to Self-Employed. All her work promotes employment, encourage Empowerment, Entrepreneurship and encourages a positive behavioral shift in the way our communities live their lives.  Joanne is a member of the following:

  • UN Global Alliance Clean Cookstoves – Partner
  • ISO TC285 – Clean Cook Stoves (responsible to develop the Australian position for the international standards development process.) Australian expert in this field.
  • Association for Sustainability in Business – Australia. Member
  • Solar Cookers International – Member

About Green Living Australia

The Green Living Australia business evolved from a need to create homemade, preservative free, additive free foods, and chemical free body products to combat the ever increasing food allergy and chemical sensitivity within our society. From this, Green Living Australia has built a strong community, providing pure cultures, equipment and education for conscious foodies to fill their dietary requirements and gourmet food cravings or make all natural body products that are chemical free and sustainable!

Very knowledgeable teachers and and informative, interesting and fun workshop. The cheese samples were delicious and I can’t wait to make my own at home!

Chris Giust • Jul 2020


Engaging presenter, great demonstration and loads of interaction with group. Interesting information but only criticism is perhaps too much technical info for such a short presentation. The kits hook and gear on offer seemed like tremendous Value - due to social distancing and amount of people wanting to purchase will follow up on line

Claire Prior • Mar 2020


The class was informative. I thought it would be more hands on. Seating was a little awkward and hard to see.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and easy to listen too.

Cinnamon Eacott • Mar 2020


Valerie was extremely knowledgeable and broke down the elements of cheese making into simple easy to understand parts. We all enjoyed eating all the samples and everyone in our group went home with cheese making kits excited to try on our own.
