Cheese Making - classes at Taylor Cottage Orchard

I could try and make some connections between vintage and cheese and I think there are a few but the main one is ... I love them both!

We have a fabulous kitchen and lifestyle shop in Martinborough called Mint at Martinborough and Sue and I have arranged this cheese making course.

A great Christmas pressie idea too, come along with your daughter, sister, mother, husband or friend.

Taylor Cottage Orchard Barn is located on a certified  organic orchard in Martinborough and is the lovely peaceful (apart from Captain Jack the cockerel who may be noisy!) location for our first cheese making class.

Only 12 people in each class so that everyone gets attention and space to be really hands on.
Take home the cheese you make and wow your family.

Alexis of Curious Cook in Kapiti is the expert and will teach us how to make ricotta and halloumi in a morning session.
A walk around the organic orchard, olive oil tasting and lunch will follow.

Thursday JANUARY 26th 2012 at 9am - 2pm SOLD OUT!!

Friday JANUARY 27th at 9am - 2pm

$95 includes all supplies and lunch - just bring your apron and enthusiasm!

Only 12 spaces for each class, a second day will be arranged for any overflow here to BOOK NOW!!

If you are interested in making an overnight trip so that you can enjoy all the other things that Martinborough has to offer contact me for accommodation ideas.
