Supplied by: The Courtyard Dairy

Spend a day learning how to make cheese at The Award Winning Courtyard Dairy (included in The Daily Telegraph’s “Most Amazing Cheese Shops in the World”!) 

These detailed cheese-making courses are limited to 8 people, each using their own equipment, and taught by industry expert and owner, Andy Swinscoe.

You’ll be guided through the background science and technical theory of how to make cheeses, and then experience hands-on cheese-making of 2 distinct types, a hard ‘Cheddar style’ cheese and a soft ‘lactic’ cheese, taking home the cheese you make, along with three further recipes. 


What's Included?

The course runs from 9.30 am – 3.00 pm, and includes lunch.

The course is detailed and covers all the basics of cheese-making, combining a hands-on approach with some theory classroom work.
The subjects covered include: milk composition; use of rennet; selecting and using ripening cultures and starter bacteria; setting the curd; cutting, draining and stirring the curd; moulding, milling and pressing the curd; and cheese ageing. You will make two types of cheese: hard ‘Cheddar-style’ and soft ‘lactic’.

Each course is for up to eight participants, with each participant using separate cheese vats and moulding equipment to ensure everyone gets a full experience.
