PLEASE NOTE that we will be releasing new dates for our Cheese Making course in the New Year - in the meantime please register your interest using the "Keep me informed" button at the bottom of this page and we will let you know as soon as dates are available.
Come and try your hand at making your own cheese here at River Cottage HQ!
During this one day course you will learn how to make a variety of delicious soft cheeses, including camembert-style and mozzarella, which you can take home with you at the end of the day.
Soft cheeses will be the focus of the day, with hard cheese covered in theory, providing you with the knowhow to make your own cheeses whenever and wherever you want to - you won't need much equipment or space and you can wow your friends and family with your very own handmade cheeses!
As well as your cheeses, a delicious seasonal lunch is included as part of the day, freshly prepared by our River Cottage Chefs, and at the end of the day you will take home some of the cheeses you've made.
