Feta Masterclass

Take a deep dive into the world of feta.

This 5-hr workshop will run on the following date in 2023:

Sun 10 Dec

from $216 | 5 hrs

From soft, crumbly, marinated & brined, you’ll gain all the knowledge to confidently make your favourite feta at home.

A pioneer, leader and respected authority in the cheese industry, Kristen Allan has spent over 17 years immersing herself in the techniques and flavours of the ancient art of cheese making.

Kristen’s cheese is in great demand, supplying the likes of Annie Smither’s restaurant Du Fermier, Ester, Fred’s and Aria and has been a regular stallholder for some years at Carriageworks. Her recipes have been featured in various food magazines and publications including Gourmet Traveller & Cornersmith’s cookbooks.

In 2018, Kristen was nominated for a Delicious Produce award, a testament to her philosophy of slow, carefully hand crafted cheese, using only high quality ingredients. Her buttermilk ricotta has a cult-like following around Sydney and her cheese is revered Australia-wide.

Establishing herself in the echelons of the food world and as one of Australia’s leading cheese educators, she is a regular teacher at Daylesford Longhouse, Cornersmith and Moonacres cooking school.

Kristen is an accomplished speaker. One of her most prized achievements in 2018, when she was asked to present at the feminist talks and ideas festival ‘All About Women’, becoming the first person to make cheese at the Sydney Opera House.”
