How many types of cheese are there?
There are hundreds of different types of cheeses available around the world, although some are far more well known than others. At RedBalloon you’ll find cheese supplies covering some of your favourites including soft cheeses like ricotta, camembert, brie; or hard cheeses like gorgonzola. Which ever cheese making class you choose, you’ll find a variety of cheeses on offer, leaving you spoilt for choice.
What to bring to a cheese making class?
Everything will be provided for you during your cheese making workshop including the ingredients, equipment, recipes and anything else. We do recommend to wear comfortable clothes on the day and enclosed footwear for safety reasons. If you have long hair it may be necessary to tie it back to keep off your face and away from the food. You will also be provided an apron to wear over your clothes.
