Cheesemaking: Mozarella + Burrata

Mozzarella on nearly every aspiring home cheesemakers 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, Khadijah Massoud 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. Time: 11:00 am - 2:00pm

Cheeses 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. The cheeses will be paired with traditional wines and accompaniments that bring out the very best flavors of Italian cheese. Buon Gusto! Time: 6:00 - 8:00pm Date: Sun, Jan 6th, 2020 Instructor: Amanda Parker
