Thank you Gavin and Kim. I thoroughly enjoyed the Beginners Cheese Making Course. The cheeses we made and took home were wonderful!  I am itching to make some more cheese at home now.  Pip and I made the Chocolate Ricotta Tart on Sunday evening and then ravioli with ricotta, pumpkin, baby spinach and thyme on Monday evening.  Very keen to attend an advanced cheese making course in 2017!!

Halloumi MM Fresh Cheese Kit

Earlier this year my wife and I did the beginners cheese making course with Gav. As two enthusiasts with some business ideas, we were not only after some basic knowledge how to make cheeses like ricotta, fetta and haloumi. We wanted to know more. More about chemical processes, aging conditions, milk quality requirements, etc. Gav provided exactly what we were after. Not only did he deliver a great course and answered all of our questions. Throughout our conversations he also provided invaluable insights into cheese making trade, detailed chemical process in cheese production and ageing processes. We can highly recommend Gav as a cheese maker guru and instructor!

    Gavin, when is the cheese making workshop? I checked your website and I couldn’t find the date. Also your schedule for the beginners/advance soap making in the 3rd and 4th term? I am scheduled to attend this Sunday, 4th June, but there’s an emergency call for me that I need to go interstate and I need to cancel my enrolment. I am still interested to continue this on the 3rd or 4th term.



    • Gavin says:

      Hi Hernan, The next cheese making workshop has not been published yet, but tentatively scheduled for 29th or 30th of July. As for rescheduling the soap making course, please call ladies at the Melton South Community Centre on (03) 9747 8576 to fix that up. Looking forward to meeting you on the next course. Gav
