BLUE CHEESE MAKING WORKSHOP

If you love cheese, then come and learn how to make it!
Join us for a day of fun on Saturday 25th October 2014. You will be learning the art of making your own blue handmade cheese using traditional methods. This hands-on workshop is hosted by Sarah & Chris Styles-Power from The Shebbear Cheese Co in Devon.
Sarah & Chris will first guide you through the cheesemaking process, you will learn the use of cultures, rennets, draining, molding, salting and aging your cheese using everyday kitchen equipment.
Then they will teach you how to make two blue cheeses – your own Borough Blue and a Cambozola (blue brie) type. You will learn two different methods of adding the blue mould and you will then take the cheeses home to mature. Full instructions will be given on how to care for them.
Clavelshay Barn will also be serving a scrumptious lunch, including some of Sarah & Chris’s handmade cheeses and local seasonal ingredients from the Somerset Region.

SPRING FORAGING WORKSHOP
Details: Date: Saturday 2nd May 2015 Time: 10am – 4pm Price per person: £85
There are certain things you can experience in life that change the way you view the world. An Autumn foraging walk led by friendly, local expert Greg Power is one of them. Ask any forager why they scour the wilderness for food and the answer will invariably have something to do with the pleasure of communing with nature.
You will learn to confidently identify and sustainably harvest an amazing array of common wild edible and medicinal plants around Clavelshay Farm. This would include introduction, safety brief, foraging walk – identifying flora and fauna, then collecting food ready for lunch.
There will be a lunch cooked over an open fire. Game meat or fish will be the order of the day.
After lunch another walk and tree identification if time permits.
