Crafting Fresh Cheese at Home: Ricotta, Mozzarella and Burrata- SOLD OUT!
Tuesday, September 11th
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Cooking Classroom, $35 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Cheese has been called “the art of spoiling milk” and it is an art form indeed. The diversity that can be coaxed out of a relatively small pool of ingredients (milk, cream, a coagulant and salt) is amazing, and the production of many cheeses require special environments, special cultures and expensive special equipment- not to mention months or years of aging. If you lent your cheese-aging cave or ripening rack to your neighbor, you’ll be happy to hear that there are many fresh cheeses that can easily be made in the average kitchen- without a degree in bacteriology. In this class, we’ll focus on young, Italian cow’s milk cheeses, some of the most beloved and versatile cheeses in the kitchen. We’ll spin mozzarella curd into homemade burrata (a rich mix of cream and curd enveloped by fresh pulled mozzarella), fresh mozzarella and ricotta, and show you how to use your fresh cheeses to complement later Summer fruits and vegetables in light, delicious dishes. This class is very hands on and is vegetarian friendly, with gluten free options upon request (please specify when registering). Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Fresh Burrata with Warm Cherry Tomato Relish
  • Pizza Margherita with Fresh Mozzarella
  • Grilled Zucchini Rolls with Fresh Ricotta
  • Whipped Lemon Ricotta Mousse with Thyme Marinated Peaches
