18 Reasons: Mozzarella & Burrata by Hand – In Person
July 29 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm
A hands-on cheesemaking course. This class is limited to 16 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Masks are recommended.
Fresh burrata and mozzarella can be notoriously fussy to make. Cheesemaking teacher Kirstin Jackson will guide you along the fun process of stretching bocconcini, ovolini, and their cream-filled cousin, burrata. We’ll start with a mozzarella and burrata cheese tasting, then jump into making it ourselves. You’ll learn the basics of cheesemaking science, which ingredients to use and why, the ins and outs of stretching cheese curd, and get advice on some simple ways to eat your newest cheese creation.
We’ll end the class with a light lunch consisting of our own cheeses, a seasonal vegetarian salad, locally baked bread, and a glass of wine or beer!
