 Taranaki:- Katherine will be returning to Taranaki in June 2012 for another burst of cheese making down here but in the meantime, I am now available for fresh cheese workshops using the Mad Millie Cheese equipment which I have found to be exactly what you need to take you to the next step of making your own cheese! Contact me for more information on options available.
