Three Cheeses In Three Hours with Wine
This class is on hold until Spring 2016 while our instructor celebrates the miracle of maternity. Classes with available space are listed above in the "Date" drop-down menu.
Ever wondered how to make cheese at home? Learn to make three distinct and delicious types of cheese: mozzarella, chevre (fresh goat cheese) & burrata. During the class, you'll enjoy a fun sampling of economical red and white wine in this fast-paced, hands-on workshop. This three-hour class walks you through the history of cheesemaking, important facts about milk quality and differences as well as the complex biology and chemistry behind turning milk into tasty cheese curds and protein-rich whey.
Each group of students starts with their own gallon of milk and finesses it over the course of the class into rich, stretchy mozzarella. Enjoy some of your finished mozzarella, then we'll turn the rest into creamy, dreamy burrata. We'll also demonstrate in time-delay fashion how to craft a fresh, tangy goat cheese along with tips to make your goat cheese appear as several different types of artisanal cheeses through various preparation techniques. You'll gain all the knowledge needed to create your own cheese platter instead of buying store-bought cheeses.
In case you were worried about going hungry, we'll be sampling cheese and delicious wine all along the way.
