Who says vegan cheese can’t be amazing? Not us! And neither will you with this tasty new cookery experience.

This half day vegan cheese making experience will show you how to make your own and never look back!

You’ll learn how to make soft cheeses, hard cheeses and even vegan cheese that melts! You will also discover when and how to use cheesecloths, and mix up your base with cashews, coconut, almonds or tofu, and master flavourings with herbs, chilli, black pepper and much more…

Recipes we are likely to make include:

  • Smoked Cashew Vegan Cheese
  • Herbed Tofu Ricotta
  • Soft Almond Cheese
  • Vegan Parmesan Cheese
  • Vegan Mozzarella

Above recipes are subject to availability of ingredients.

What to expect…

We welcome students of all abilities, so whatever your current skill level, you’ll fit right in. And you don’t have to be veggie to enjoy our courses – everyone’s welcome! Our cookery experiences will help you hone your cooking skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. You’ll dive right in with hands-on practical cookery sessions, under the expert guidance of our experienced tutors, who will share their wealth of knowledge with you. Attendee numbers are kept small so you’ll have maximum contact with the tutors – and there will be plenty of opportunities throughout the day to ask any questions you may have.

What else you need to know…

We have lots of free car parking available on site. If you’re getting here by public transport, we are only a short taxi ride or a 20 minute walk from Altrincham bus station/train station/Metrolink (Altrincham line). Here’s our address: Vegetarian Society Cookery School, Parkdale, Altrincham, Greater Manchester, WA14 4QG.

As soon as you get here, we’ll make sure you’ve got a cup of tea or freshly-brewed coffee to help make you feel right at home (and we also have a water cooler if hot drinks aren’t your thing). We’ll make sure refreshments are provided throughout the day – there’s no need to bring any with you.

We have Vegetarian Society Cookery School aprons for students to use on the courses – and if you really like them, they are available to purchase at the school.
Throughout the day, there are lots of opportunities to take photos/videos (which are great for sharing on social media), so feel free to get your phones or cameras out and snap away! The only thing we ask is that you check with the other students if they are in any photos you want to put on social media.

If you have any other questions about your course, you can always give us a call on 0161 925 2000 (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) – we’re happy to help.

And finally: enjoy yourself!
