Cooking Class Demos - Making Cheese & Crock Pot Cooking - Parts 1 - 4
INCLUDES ALL OF THE PRESENTATIONS:
Katherine Mowbray &
Katherine Mowbray has been making cheese for 20 years, and sharing her knowledge and love of cheesemaking courses around New Zealand. Even as a small child Katherine and her family had a Jersey house-cow that was hand milked and the cream churned into butter. Once she finished school she attended agricultural college in Devon to learn the skills of milking cows and the management of dairy farming. For many years she worked in different countries, milking cows and rearing calves. So it has been a natural progression into making cheese within the boutique cheesemaking industry in England and in New Zealand. However, her first hands-on home cheesemaking was as an 11 year old when a Greek Cypriot friend of her father demonstrated Halloumi and Ricotta cheeses in his kitchen, from a bucket full of fresh milk from the farm.
Then, in 1987, Katherine found herself working on a Milking-Sheep farm in Sussex. Since then she has developed many recipes using small amounts of milk – ie 2 – 10 litres – encouraging hundreds of people throughout New Zealand to take the opportunity to make their own cheesey delights and share with and impress their families and friends. Her greatest passion is promoting and educating the public about cheesemaking so they have the confidence and the skills of their own and bring community back into their kitchens.
