AS any good Monty Python fan would know blessed are the cheese makers.

For residents who want to know more about cheese there's a workshop later this month in Tweed Heads.

The Cheese Making Workshop owner Lyndall Dykes said people would learn to make camembert, fetta, ricotta, mascarpone, quark (cream cheese) and Greek style yoghurt in the one-day workshop.

"I just believe it's just one of those things that we have handed over to experts," Ms Dykes said.

"Milk maids have been making cheese in the mountain for centuries.

"It's not very difficult."

Ms Dykes said eating cheese made in home kitchens was just as safe as eating any other food prepared in the kitchen.

"I think we have got in a new mindset. People want to make things from scratch and are much more aware of what they are eating," she said.

Ms Dykes will conduct two soft cheese workshops at Tweed Heads on Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12.

The hands-on workshops are being held at Kirra Beach Apartments.

Workshops include all course notes, morning tea, a cheese-inspired lunch served with a North Coast wine and a gift bag of cheeses to take home.

Phone Ms Dykes on 02 6656 2335 or 0458 562 135 to book a place in the workshop.
