From camembert to feta: learn to make cheese

Back by popular demand, Cowichan Green Community is hosting a second round of cheesemaking workshops with David Asher Rotsztain this weekend, April 12 and 13.

Running from 1 0 a.m. to 2 p.m., the two-part workshop takes participants from how to start through more advanced cheesemaking.

The first day, students will learn about milk quality, starter cultures, rennet, high-acid cheeses and the techniques for making panner, yogurt cheese and camembert.

The April 13 workshop will give students the chance to make blue cheese, knead mozzarella, brine feta cheese and make Swiss style hard cheese.

The workshops take place at CGC, 360 Duncan St. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Each workshop is $40 per person, or $35 for CGC members. Stop by the CGC office to register. For information call Vanessa at 250-748-8506 or email
