Family Cheesemaking Class
Back by popular demand, a mozzarella-making class designed especially for you and your favorite young person (ages 8-14).
The only mozzarella class out there that starts with milk (instead of pre-made curds) and ends with cheese, this class will inspire the science-loving chef in young and old alike.
This two and a half-hour class walks you through a fun history of cheesemaking, some cool facts about milk and how to turn it into tasty cheese that's ready in about an hour. Each small group of students starts with their own gallon of milk and coaxes it over the course of the class into rich, stretchy mozzarella. Everyone's favorite part is 'pulling' the mozzarella to see how far they can make it stretch before they give in and pop in their mouths. YUM!
We'll provide fun, kid-friendly beverages and all the entertainment you can stand in this dynamic hands-on class.
This workshop is taught by Nicole Easterday, the founder of FARMcurious. Nicole is an engaging teacher who encourages a fun, interactive environment while she explains what’s happening in a very down-to-earth, kid- and adult-friendly format.
Attendees will leave this class with:
- A new appreciation for the magic that is cheese
- Confidence and knowledge to reproduce the same results at home.
- Handouts including recipes, frequently asked questions, fun facts and resources.
- Delicious, versatile whey we produce while making the cheese (don't worry, we'll explain how to use it - you can't wait, check out this blog post).
This class is only available for adults accompanied by a minor (ages 8-13). Each person (adult and child) requires a ticket. For an adults-only night out, check out our Three Cheeses in Three Hours (with wine!) class.
