Three Cheeses In Three Hours with Wine
Learn to make three distinct and delicious types of cheese: mozzarella, chèvre (fresh goat cheese) & burrata. During the class, you'll enjoy an extraordinary sampling of local and sustainable 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.
Upon arrival, you'll be greeted with a gorgeous class of bubbly to pair with the fresh goat cheese we've prepared and flavored for you.
Once everyone is settled, we'll jump right in and demonstrate (in a time-lapse 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 even learn to work cheesemaking into a busy lifestyle.
Next, we'll separate into groups of 3-6 students; each group will start with a gallon of milk and finesse it over the course of the class into rich, stretchy mozzarella. Enjoy some of your finished mozzarella, while we turn the rest into creamy, dreamy burrata. There's just nothing like fresh mozzarella and burrata which have never been refrigerated!

"I can't say enough great things about my FARMcurious class and its founder, Nicole. I'm a cheesemonger through and through and I loved every bit of Nicole's class. She diligently explains the science behind the process so that you aren't just following directions but understanding what makes cheese cheese. All the while she feeds you her own freshly made chevre and some wine. We made friends, learned a new culinary skill, and had a blast. It was delightful!" - Allison S.
