Historical cheese making and bread baking class

If you would like to register for this class please contact us through or fill out the Booking Form  to send you payment instructions and information.  

The class explores the history of cheese making and learns how to make rennet, vinegar and plant juice based cheese curds and re-create an ancient Greek goat and sheep cheese recipe.

It is then taken through the many aspects involved in creating different types of period breads- from making sourdough to kneading and from baking to using the bread as an ingredient in various dishes-  using period cookbooks and other primary sources. The breads are baked on hot stones, in a replica of a 5th century pnigeus (portable earthenware oven), on a replica of a Byzantine portable grill and in the heat of a traditional wood fired oven.

Numbers are limited to  8 participants, so that your experience is as hands-on as possible. 
The class lasts around 4 hours  (10:00 - 14:00)

Different themes and recipes are available depending on the products of the season and request


You can also hire me to create a period cookery course for you or for you and your friends, in the privacy of your own home.
If you like, create your own group of  3 or more people and I will arrange a class just for you.
