BoatShed Cheese was created by Tamara, of Tamara's Kitchen – a well known cooking school in Hawthorn, Melbourne, and author of several cookbooks.
Tamara's first food love was bread-making and since 1989, Tamara has taught thousands of her students how to make delicious bread as well as cakes, risotto and so much more. Her love of food has taken her to France where she has taught and escorted gourmet 'foodies' to Provence to learn more about the food and lifestyle of this popular destination.
Upon moving to the Mornington Peninsula, Tamara discovered the wonderful array of locally produced foods including farm-fresh goat milk – the essence of most Provencal cheese.
With local produce and a desire to re-create her favourite French style cheese, Tamara began an exciting and enlightening journey into the world of cheese making.
Tamara is well known for creating easy, approachable recipes to share with her students and it’s kept them coming back time and time again.
