Learn to make your own vegan cheese at this workshop in Sydney.

You won’t believe how easy and satisfying making your own vegan cheeses really is! Learn how to make a range of nutritious and delicious plant-based appetisers using whole foods. No nasties or synthetic ingredients here!

Using protein rich nuts and other plant-based ingredients, you’ll learn a range of techniques to add that ‘cheesy’ element to your menu. Make your own cheese to melt into creamy sauces, add to pasta dishes, bake in pastries – or simply feature on an elegant vegan cheese platter.

You will make in class:

  • Cashew & herb - a tasty and sliceable block vegan cheese
