In four and half hours, you’ll be guided through the steps to make feta from scratch and will take home your own round of feta to brine and then eat the next day! There'll also be a mozzarella demonstration where you'll be able to stretch a small piece of your own curd at the end.

All ingredients provided (vegetarian rennet is used).

Outcomes - By the end of the workshop, you'll be able to:

- Use equipment from your own kitchen and/or know where to source it from
- Describe different types of milk (raw vs store-bought)
- Describe differences between pasteurisation and homogenisation
