I would dearly love to attend this workshop as I have long wanted to learn how to make cheese, however I too will be having my head in the computer all day with final assessment deadlines and study and cannot make it.  Please hold this workshop again and I will keep an eye out for it! Cheers Heather

Hi Elisabeth, I rang you earlier in the week about enrolling in this course but have only got around to signing up to it through your website now - however there appears to be a problem with the webpage. Could you please let me know how to get around this problem? I cant wait to attend your course as I have recently bought a jersey cow with the intent to milk her and make my own dairy products. Thanks, Marie.

Can you teach me to make mozzarella for my pizza's ?  I don't have access to pure cow's milk or water buffalo milk - will that matter?  At the end of the day |I would like a creamy melting cheese.  Thanks. Warren McG

I will probably do another before the end of the year. You can get back in touch for booking in if the next one suits you. Elisabeth Fekonia

Would absolutely love to come but it's too close to exams for me.  Hopefully there will be another workshop some other time.
