Make homemade cheese Everyone can enjoy this cheese cooking! Taste the fresh made cheese using Zao’s milk. “Zao Heartland”
Experience Programs & Sports
At Zao Heartland, you can try making dairy products using the milk from Zao.
Zao Heartland is closed from the end of September to March so the event is held at their Cheese House and accept reservations.
Here is the list of what they offer. Lesson that you can try for 30 min. or for 2 hrs.
Please reserve 1week in advance.
We decided to try "Cheese making A course"
Prepare milk, vinegar, a pan and bowls and get started! The staff will nicely teach you how to make.
First, put milk in the pan and heat it. If the milk is heated enough put vinegar.
If you start stiring it, it will start to separate. This tofu-like chuck will become cheese.
Put a cloth on top the bowl and filter the cheese.
We will rinse it with water so that we can eat it at the place. Wash it gently so that the cheese will not spill out.
Drain off the water and here it is! Your cottage cheese is completed! Once you remember the process, you can also make it at home!
Sprinkle salt on cheese and it'll taste like the one sold at stores.
Big groups are available too. In summer, their icecream making is popular.
In addition, at Cheese House they not only have cooking class but also restaurants.
We recommend their "Rakronetto" which is toasted bread with cheese. Enjoy Zao's cheese and get a nice picture of it.
Why not try making cheese and icecream?
