Cheese Makers

A group for those who make cheese to share their experiments, learnings and failures.  

A person who makes cheese is called a ... Cheese Maker.  I prefer the French term, Fromager. 

This group is for Fromagers and Turophiles alike. 

We have two "how to" instructional videos:

30 Minute Feta Making Lesson

11 Minute Glasshouse Blue Cheese Lesson

9 Minute Halloumi Lesson

The humbled cheese maker...

My mate, Jerri Case from the New England Cheese Making Company has been kind enough to give me another feature on their blog.

The link is for my: Glasshouse Blue.

I'm proud that our BLF site and the Cheese Makers group was able to grab some international attention from the site of the "Godmother of home cheese making" (Andy's phrase, not Rikki Carrol's).

A few of us now have agreed that the choice of milk makes ALL the difference when it comes to cheese. Cheap charlie $1 litre milk:  yes it makes cheese fine.  However, the texture is quite different. With my fetta, I found it produced a curd that…Continue

Well done you and students! Looks delish. Very glad to hear the course was a success.

Next course at home is 15 March.  Cost is $50.  We make feta and ricotta ... and eat a lot of home made cheese.  LOL. This will pop up in Events soon.  There are only three places left.

VERY proud of my wonderful students.  They made Feta with Cranberry and goat's Ricotta. 

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on January 27, 2015 at 22:23

I have one place spare for Sunday 1 Feb's cheese making course.  Anyone who wants to learn to make feta and ricotta should let me know. Or, if you just wanna eat lots of cheese, sample some home made liquors, tour the Manor and generally indulge yourself. $50 and goes from 1 to around 5 pm. First in, best dressed.

A quick update - people tried the Brisbane Nutty Blue at the garden visit (October 14).  It was most popular.

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by site-founder, Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
