Thursday 2nd May at 1pm; Farrington’s, Monmouth – Ticket £20
We are teaming up with Farringtons in Church Street for a book talk and tasty, cheesy lunch with C4’s Sunday Brunch cheese expert, Morgan McGlynn. Morgan opened her own cheese shop in Muswell Hill at the age of 21. She is now the cheese consultant for Selfridges, Harrods and Fortnum & Mason.
Tickets include a delicious lunch made using local cheeses and recipes from the book, and entitle you to £10 off the book at the event.
The Modern Cheesemaker shows you how to make 18 cheeses, from the rich and gooey, to the wonderfully stinky, and all the cheeseboard favourites – it includes simple, fresh cheeses such as mozzarella and ricotta, working up to salty and versatile halloumi, feta and paneer, perfect, melting Swiss cheese, through to aged Cheddar and Brie.
Starting from the very basics of the making process, with a guide to milk types and the seasonal nature of cheese, The Modern Cheesemaker will deepen your understanding of this essential ingredient and its production.
The equipment to use is thoroughly explained and readily available and by following the easy-to-use instructions and Morgan McGlynn’s expert tips, you’ll soon learn how to become your own artisan cheesemaker.
To reap the rewards of your hard work, there are over 40 recipes for delicious cheese-based dishes to make, along with flavouring cheese and accompaniments to go with.
