What could be more delicious than your own still-warm, hand-pulled mozzarella? We think nothing! In this class we’ll waste no time, jumping right in to heat up fresh milk and turn it into that luscious miracle that is fresh mozzarella. Instructor Nicole Easterday, Founder of FARMcurious, will walk you through the entire process, sharing tips and tricks along to way to avoid the most common pitfalls of this finicky cheese.
During lulls while we wait for the magic to happen, you’ll learn some history of cheesemaking, important facts about milk quality and differences as well as the complex chemistry behind cheesemaking, all covered in a fun, easy to understand format. In the end, each student will have the chance to stretch their own fresh mozzarella and shape it however they like. You’ll go home with a small ball of the fresh mozzarella you made (unless you eat it all – we won’t judge!) and the knowledge to do it all again with confidence at home.
This class is held at a home in upper Castro. Directions will be sent upon purchase of ticket.
