Cheese and Butter Making Workshop with Tara Cookery
In this hands on workshop spend an evening making mozzarella, ricotta and butter from scratch. You will learn about cheese making, the history of cheese and get to know your way around a cheese board. Create delicious dishes with your homemade cheese and sit down for dinner with a spread of salads and charcuterie. There will also be a full wine pairing throughout the class created by sommelier Matt Verona. Finally take home your handmade curds, all of the recipes, a jar of Tara's homemade Spiced Apple Chutney, and even more cheese carefully selected from La Fromagerie, all in a Tara Cookery tote bag.
