Afterwork 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, 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 Pairing 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.

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!
