Cheese making pro Louise Talbot is coming back to Didsbury cookery school Food Sorcery in January with two days of cheese making workshops.
Day one will focus on mozzarella and halloumi, along with a demonstration of mascarpone and butter making.
Day two is all about making your own camembert, feta and labneh, a Middle Eastern cheese which you’ll be able to enjoy on crusty bread with lunch.
Louise will also be bringing some homemade Irish cream cheese for you to try – and time permitting, you’ll also get the chance to make some delicious parmesan shortbread.
Louise has all the cheese qualifications. A Cheese Awards judge, Academy of Cheese Training Partner and member of the Specialist Cheese Makers Association, she definitely knows her curds from her whey.
And if that’s not enough cheesy accolades for you, Louise is also a guest tutor at top cookery schools including Waitrose, Leith’s School of Food and Wine, Divertimenti and WI Denman College.
The two workshops are a mix of demonstration, hands-on practice, theory and tasting. After attending the five-hour sessions you will know enough to be able to replicate the processes at home – plus plenty of cheese, naturally.
The Cutting the Curd workshops take place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th January 2019 at Food Sorcery. Tickets for each date include tea or coffee on arrival, lunch and wine, and are priced at £100pp.
