Talk­ing cheese

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

What’s not to like about moz­zarella? It’s a won­der­ful, lit­tle fresh cheese that re­quires only two litres of milk to make. Within an hour and a half it’s ready to eat. That’s just what par­tic­i­pants at Tran­si­tion Mata­mata’s moz­zarella evening on Au­gust 5 will do – see a cheese-mak­ing demon­stra­tion and sam­ple the de­li­cious fare when it’s ready.

Kather­ine Mow­bray has been pre­sent­ing cheese mak­ing cour­ses for more than 20 years, and Tran­si­tion Mata­mata is de­lighted they could bring her to Mata­mata for this spe­cial evening kindly hosted at Work­mans Cafe´ & Bar.

Dur­ing the ses­sion, Kather­ine will pro­vide an in­tro­duc­tion to cheese mak­ing prin­ci­ples, cheese mak­ing bac­te­rial cul­tures and dairy hy­giene.

She will talk about the dif­fer­ent types of milk that can be used and re­view the ‘‘eco­nom­ics’’ of home cheese mak­ing. Kather­ine has ap­peared on tele­vi­sion to dis­cuss the craft of cheese mak­ing and is the au­thor of Cut­ting the Curd: Cheese mak­ing at home.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the ses­sion or to book your place, ring Sarah Troughton on 888 7111 or email:

The next reg­u­lar evening ses­sion at Mata­mata Intermediate School is sched­uled for Tues­day, Au­gust 19. Watch this space for de­tails.

Gazebo and event ban­ners.

In the Chron­i­cle last month Tran­si­tion Mata­mata put out a call for fi­nan­cial and in-kind con­tri­bu­tions from lo­cal businesses, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als sup­port­ive of our pur­pose and ini­tia­tives.

An im­me­di­ate need is funds for a gazebo and event ban­ners for use at lo­cal events. We’re thrilled to say that with Mar­garet and Terry Troughton’s very gen­er­ous do­na­tion we’re on our way to se­cur­ing them.

Our new logo makes its first pub­lic ap­pear­ance in this col­umn. It was de­signed by Daron Par­ton, a lo­cal de­signer and il­lus­tra­tor, with graphic sup­port from Brigitte Kingston. Their con­tri­bu­tion is truly ap­pre­ci­ated.
