As the sun rises over the Banks Peninsula down at Laura’s Dairy, Orton Bradley Park, (a small dairy run on biodynamic and organic principles) a local young woman named Laura is already at work milking her 12 Frisian x Jersey cows. The creamy white milk is then collected by Anna for that days Fresh Cheese Workshop held next door at Preserved Cook School. Now you can’t get fresher cheese than that!
Join Preserved Cook School Teacher, Anna Mahy, for a trip through milky whey. Discover how simple, enjoyable and beautifully tasty making fresh dairy products at home can be. From herb infused butter and roast garlic cream cheese to feta and halloumi and hands on ricotta. You will leave with a good knowledge of how to make fresh cheese at home yourself.
The workshop is from 10am – 2:30pm and includes a light lunch with glass of wine, tasters, booklet with detailed recipes
