Vive la France! Bastille Day and the Cheeses of France

After a long day of storming the Bastille, what’s better than a hunk of strong French cheese and a glass of fortifying French wine? While it’s two centuries too late to join the revolution, we can certainly celebrate France’s most triumphant contributions to food culture. Native daughter Colette Hatch will lead you in a tasting of French cheeses and wines: everything from the deeply traditional to the cutting edge. (But please, leave your guillotines at home).

Cheesemaking: Mozzarella and 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, your instructor, who is also a cheesemaker, will not only demystify the mozz, but also get you on the road to making perfect ovalini and bocconcini just in time for all that wonderful summer produce. But wait! There’s more! We’ll use our curds to make everyone’s favorite cheese, burrata.

Cheese & Wine of Italy

We all know Italy produces wonderful cheeses. But why is the variety so perplexingly wide? Why is mozzarella di bufala tart and a fior di latte mozzarella sweet? What accounts for the tenderness of a Pecorino Toscano and the brute forcefulness of a sheep's milk cheese from Sardinia? To fully understand the range of style and flavor of Italian cheese, one must understand the regional characteristics and culture. This class will provide a tasting tour of all the major cheese-producing regions of Italy. Led by Andy Lax of Fresca Italia, an importer and distributor that specializes in Italian cheeses, you'll taste the best and learn from a true expert. The cheeses will be paired with traditional wines and accompaniments that bring out the very best flavors of Italian cheese. Buon Gusto!

Summer Wood Fired Pizza

The perfect pizza: a crust that's crispy yet chewy; thin yet strong enough to hold toppings. While the pizza is a simple food, its subtleties can mean the difference between a soggy Frisbee and a Platonic circle of perfection. The Cheese School's own executive chef Jocelyn VanLandingham will teach you the wood-firing techniques that pizzaioli use to make a reliably perfect crust. You'll learn the oven hacks you can employ when baking the at-home pie. Finally, you'll compare the wood-fired to the oven-made to see if you can taste the difference.
