Cheese Club – Thursday – Sept 11th at 7pm

If you’ve been to one of David’s Cheese workshops – and left inspired – but then been unsure where to start – then this club is for you.

We’re going to start an informal group to share experiences, equipment, make some easy cheese together and inspire each other to be bold and make new cheese!

We’ll be experimenting with yogurt cheese on Thursday night. And then decide what we want to try next.
