Mozzarella and Ricotta
Spring is here and summer is coming. Imagine sitting down to a plate of your ripe local tomatoes and some creamy fresh mozzarella. Now imagine the mozzarella is yours. This hands-on class will teach you how to make your own mozzarella at home and how to turn the fresh whey into true traditional ricotta. One gallon of milk will turn into 2 fresh cheeses.
You will leave the class with fresh mozzarella and recipes and a basic mozzarella cheese kit.
