Warm up to the joys of home cheesemaking with this mozzarella making and stretching class! Led by home cheesemaker Louella Hill (author of Kitchen Creamery), we'll learn how milk turns into curds and whey. We'll talk about which milk to use, rennet, cheese cultures and more. Finally, we'll get down to the fun and start to stretch fresh mozzarella into all shapes and sizes. Fold in your fanciest salt or make mozzarella roulade using garden pesto. Finally fill your plate and your belly with......Lastly, head homeward with the recipes and the milk sources to do it all again.
