Join the masters of smoke from Chieftains at Innocent Bystander for an unforgettable 2-hour Smoking Masterclass on Saturday 15 July at 5pm as part of Fireside Yarra Valley.
Learn the secrets of making homemade bacon using their dry cure method. Customise your flavours with a wide range of ingredients, creating bacon that’s uniquely yours for you to take home and enjoy.
Indulge in the world of cold smoking cheese, where they’ll guide you through the process of favour experimentation and infusing rich smoky flavours into popular boutique cheeses producing your own custom creation.
Be led astray (in the best possible way) by our Cellar Door Manager, Mon, as she takes you through a lesson in wine x food pairing at the IBHQ bar while sampling all the flavours of Chieftains Smokehouse products straight from the smoker, coupled with Innocent Bystander wines. Finish the Masterclass with a cold-smoked, wine-infused cocktail and kick on ’till close.
Don’t miss this immersive experience where you’ll gain valuable knowledge, create delicious take-home bacon and cold smoked cheese, and indulge in a delightful wine pairing while indulging in Chieftains.
