Description

Join Anne Bruntse, a cheese maker based in Kenya, for a day long journey into the world of cheese-making with camel milk; at the end of the day, take home with you a load of camel cheese, and newfound insights into a relatively rare ingredient!

Anne Bruntse is a Danish/Kenyan agronomist specialized in organic farming, including dairying and camel cheese-making. She has run a dairy on her farm in Kenya for more than 20 years and worked as a consultant for a variety of government programs and non-government organizations, including Biovision Foundation for Ecological Development.

In this workshop, each participant will learn to make a halloumi-style cheese from camel milk. Camel milk has a different composition than that of cow or buffalo milk, and as such requires a special type of rennet and some extra steps. Anne will walk participants through the process, explaining the differences between camel milk and other kind milk along the way.

This workshop is organized in conjunction with Living Lightly: Journeys with Pastoralists, a curated exhibition on the lands, lives and livelihoods of pastoralists in India, held at IGNCA, New Delhi from 2-18 December 2016.

Making cheese takes time! Please plan to remain at the venue for the duration of the workshop.

There will be plenty of down time during the workshop, during which you are encouraged to browse the exhibition and learn more about the remarkable livelihood that brings camel milk to the table!

The cheese produced by the end of the day will need to be set aside to drain overnight. It will be available for pick up the following morning.
