Cheesemaking: Mozzarella + Burrata

Mozzarella on nearly every aspiring home-cheesemaker’s to-do list. Yet, it’s not easy to get it right. Why won’t your curds form a ball? When you do get the ball to form, why is it hard enough for a game of hacky-sack? These are the mysteries of mozzarella. In this class, Sacha Laurin, who is a cheesemaker for Winter's Cheese Co., will not only demystify the mozz, but also get you on the road to making perfect ovalini and bocconcini every time. But wait! There’s more! We’ll use our curds to make everyone’s favorite cheese, burrata.

Cheese + Wine 101

Pairing cheese and wine to bring out the best takes a little bit of science and a lot of experience. When you get it right, you know: the combination elevates what is already delicious into an experience that is truly transcendent. Get it wrong, and what should be a great cheese or wine falls flat (or worse.) In this class you'll learn some general guidelines that will help you get it right more often than wrong, and tasting tips that will help you identify your own personal favorites.
