Curd Your Enthusiasm: Dairying the Old Fashioned Way: Saturday 21 September, 2019 11.00-14.00 : Total Cost £38.00

We are all so familiar with picking up our butter and cheese from the supermarket chiller. With this workshop you can return to a time when butter was churned, worked out, patted, shaped and stamped and cheese was boiled, pressed, moulded and stored for several months before it was enjoyed. Have fun working with a variety of old and new churns, a myriad of quirky antique dairy tools and an old-fashioned cheese press to create milky delights from scratch. Includes sandwich lunch and all resources & materials.
