Description

Hands on Experience with Home Cheesemaking: Ricotta & Mozzarella!

In this fun and informative double header class we show you how milk is transformed into curds and how curds become cheese. First, make your own ricotta using our grass-fed milk. Ricotta (“re-cooked” in Italian) is a sweet, delicate cheese used for both sweet and savory dishes. Our instructors will show you just how easy this cheese is to make in your own home.

Then experience the fun of making your own fresh mozzarella as you are guided through the steps to stretch curds into tender, sweet mozzarella. Learn the tips and tricks to avoiding tough cheese.

We’ll complete the class with a cheese tasting, comparing between these fresh cheeses to our cave-aged Cherry Grove Farm cheeses. You will leave with fresh cheeses and our signature class folder full of cheesemaking information and recipes to use at home.

Price: $70 per person. (If you are purchasing more than one seat, please type the full name of your guest/s into the “notes” field, so we can add them to the roster.)
