Hands-on Cheese Workshop with Debra Amrein-Boyes

Homesteader’s Emporium is once again offering a 5 hour hands-on cheese making workshop with Debra Amrein-Boyes of The Farm House Natural Cheeses! The workshop is coming up fast on Saturday, October 26th 2013, so get your tickets asap!

If you’ve done a workshop at Homesteader’s storefront, you’ll know it’s not up to the task of a hands-on kitchen experience, so this course will be held off-site at Skwachàys Lodge 29 W Pender Street, which has a wonderful commercial kitchen and communal table perfect for this type of cooking workshop.

This is a rare opportunity to do a workshop with a professional local cheese maker and it’s only the second time she’s come into Vancouver to teach one, both time being thanks to Rick Havlak of Homesteader’s Emporium.

Her book,  “200 Easy Homemade Cheeses recipes-From Cheddar and Brie to Butter and Yogurt”, was nominated in 2009 for a World Gourmand Cookbook Award.

Date & Time: Saturday, October 26th 2013, 10am to 3pm
Location: To provide a hands-on kitchen experience, this course will be held off-site at Skwachàys Lodge 29 W Pender Street, Vancouver BC.
