She regularly makes cheese at home and has completed several home and commercial cheesemaking courses in WA, Victoria and South Australia. It was her desire to promote the dairy industry and to learn more about the art of cheesemaking that prompted her to start facilitating workshops, in cooperation with Cheeselinks, in Margaret River in 2006.
Ros is was a recipient of the 2008 Dairy Australia Cheesemaker Scholarship which enabled her to learn from master cheesemakers across Australia as well as further her learning at the commercial cheesemaking level.
“She is brilliant at what she does and lovely too !! I am so inspired by the course” Belinda Needle

taking the practise of cheese making a little bit further
Participants will learn the basic principles of cheesemaking, including hygiene and sanitation procedures. They will learn to pasteurise milk, then will make camembert, sour cream or mascarpone and quark. Tastings of these cheeses will be provided, and at the end of the day participants will take home their own cheese to mature (this will take several weeks) and consume at their leisure!
