Cheesemaking class

Kirsten Lawson

The atmospheric Old Cheese Factory at Riedsdale outside Braidwood, which despite what the name suggests is not a cheese factory but a cider-making outfit, holds its next cheesemaking workshop on the weekend of March 23 and 24.

These sessions are led by Barry Lillywhite, former cheesemaker at Charles Stuart University in Wagga Wagga.

He'll cover table cheese, fetta and ricotta on the Saturday, and camembert, blue and paneer on the Sunday. You can attend one day or two; at $250 a day.

On Saturday, March 16, Braidwood baker Matthew Hulse, of Dojo bakery, will rake a breadmaking course at the Old Cheese Factory, 9.30am to 12.30pm with lunch afterwards for $154.
