Dalby is about to say cheese

DALBY Show patrons on Friday can learn the art of cheese making.

Permaculture teacher Elisabeth Fekonia is bringing her tour to Dalby and said a workshop would allow people to not only learn how to make cheese but enjoy it.

"The workshops allow people to empower themselves with the best food they could ever eat,” she said.

"There is nothing better than home-made food, and cheese you have made is 10 times better than what you can buy in the shops.”

Ms Fekonia said her love of making cheese comes from her childhood in The Netherlands and living in Australia.

"I am Dutch, so I grew up on cheese and bread,” she said.

"The first workshop I am doing is about making brie cheese and sourdough bread because I love those two foods for breakfast.

"Now that I am living out on acreage it means that you often try to be self-sufficient with food.

"I have done this for two decades and I want to share it with people.”

Ms Fekonia's first class in brie cheese and sourdough bread will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Her second class in making feta and cultured dairy products will run from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

Tickets cost $70 for one class or $120 for both.
