Mild and milky, smooth and silky: any way you stretch it, we love fresh mozzarella! In this hands-on class you’ll learn how to make it at home. After a basic demonstration describing how fresh milk turns from fluid to firm curds, we'll then turn curds into the beautiful balls that we know as fresh mozzarella. We’ll taste delicious samples of fresh pulled curd-style mozzarella served with garden fresh tomato salad, crusty bread and beverages. It may sound daunting, but making your own fresh cheese is easy. Come see for yourself!
This class will be held in the home kitchen of Herbs from the Labyrinth, in Lancaster. You will have a chance to explore the labyrinth garden during the cheese-tasting at the end of the class.
$ 50.00, in advance for the class. The Lancaster address will be provided upon registration. Cheese-making supplies and books will also be available for purchase after the class.
To register call Radiance, 290-1517, or stop by the shop at 9 W Grant St, in downtown Lancaster, right across the cobblestones from Central Market.
