The spirit

Between sea and mountains, I welcome you to my studio nestled in the heart of an oak forest and mountain massifs in the Nefza region. In this wonderful place where I grew up, I discovered a natural area rich in botanical species (forest, myrtle, thyme, rosemary) thanks to the abundance of water. Not far from where I live, the Sidi El Barrak dam on Tunisia’s northern coast is the country’s second largest hydraulic structure. I invite you to experience a culinary immersion on our breeding farm, in a quiet place far from city noise and pollution. A day of relaxation, discovery and sharing, during which you can take part in milking cows, cheese-making and other culinary activities in an exceptional natural setting.

We’ve got you covered…

Khairate Al Malika Farm

Welcome to Khairate El Malika farm. After a warm welcome and introduction to the day’s activities, we’ll set off on a tour of the breeding farm. Meeting the cows and milking are special moments in this experience and in the cheese-making process.

We’ll be continuing the experiment in the cheese-processing workshops. Join us as we show you the cheese-making process and the different varieties of cheese we produce. We’ll start by preparing the curds for shaping and cheese-making. You’ll discover the different plants and flavours that you can also combine with your cheese.

During the tasting, you’ll enjoy your home-made cheeses and a hearty breakfast made with local produce and specialties from our region.
