In-person or Zoom Class: Cheesemaking: Mozzarella, Burrata & Ricotta
October 27, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Wednesday, October 27, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM. In-person or Zoom Class: Cheesemaking: Mozzarella, Burrata & Ricotta with Dani Williams and Chef Thomas Garnick. In-person cost: $75.00 each. Zoom cost: $40.00 per household.
The soft texture of mozzarella, the creaminess of burrata (the soft shell with a creamy center) and the lightness of ricotta – you’ll make some of the richest and tastiest cheeses ever!
In this hands-on class you’ll explore and learn the secrets of Italy’s iconic cheeses and after they’re made, part two is creating a burrata board, pairing the cheeses with complementary foods. Pairing the right cheeses and fruits provides a flavorful contrast of taste and textures. Pickled foods are a tangy contrast to cheeses. Fruits bring bright, fresh flavors. Crackers provide a yummy topping vehicle.
Starting with your provided 12-inch round board, serving four, you’ll combine the cheeses with Urban Grove dates, nuts and a variety of seasonal fruits, 2 mini jars of honey and fig jam, mint and edible flowers for garnish as well as a pre-packaged side of crackers and a packet of disposable utensils: Wood honey dipper, wood knife and wood mini spoons.
