Cheesemaking at the Village

Did you know that the Caboolture area was well known for the dairy industry of the region from its early history? There was a cheese factory in Caboolture, and one at Woodford, and in the 1860’s there was one in Beachmere.

Caboolture Mozzarella is still around – made until recently by a company called United Dairy, but more recently the Caboolture Mozzarella brand has been purchased by Murray Goulburn  Here is some of the story.

These days cheeses are more easily made in the home kitchen. The Caboolture Historical Village will be holding its first

The Caboolture Historical Village will be holding its first Beginners Italian Artisan Cheesemaking Workshop at the Village on Wednesday May 27th at 9.30 am.  At this workshop you will learn how to make your own Fetta, Yoghurt, Ricotta and Mozzarella.  At this 2 hour beginners’ class you will receive notes about making the cheeses. You will learn how to do the “hands on” stretching of Mozzarella curd.  You will also be able to taste the cheeses made in class.  It will be a lot of fun and equip you with the knowledge to make cheese at home

The class is very informative and outlines step by step how you can make these cheeses.  The cost of the class is $30, which includes the notes.  The classes will be held in Stanmore Hall at the Village.
