This is a three to four hour long class learning to make Mozzarella and Ricotta.
This is Farmstead Fresh at its best. In this class we will start by milking a cow and discuss the importance of quality milk and cream for cheese making and why I chose that particular cow- her nutrition, stage of lactation and pedigree, to make the fresh delicious Ricotta and Mozzarella which will be the highlight of this cheese making class. From there we will proceed into the Creamery where we'll learn the joys of making these two fresh cheeses, including learning about the equipment and ingredients needed. From this class you will have the knowledge, experience, recipes and the cheese you make to take home to enjoy.
The cheese making classes are small classes usually four or five individuals per class and are held from early April to the end of October each year. If you have a gift certificate for a class, please choose a date from the drop down menu which is located on the website page for that class, then email me and I'll reserve that class for you.
Please wear comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting wet, and bring a water bottle or refreshment, if you desire.
Aprons and Chefs Hats are provided for each class recipient.
