Learn the simple and delicious joy of making mozzarella cheese at home with this class taught by cheese monger and food writer Alex Jones. In just a few quick steps, you can make your own mozzarella cheeses at home. You will learn about the benefits of grass-fed milk and the culture and science behind pasta filata cheeses as well as how they are made. An educator from The Franklin Institute will provide information about the chemical properties that give mozzarella its distinctive stretch. We will enjoy the finished product in a few simple, seasonal dishes at the end of the class, and you will leave with recipes and resources you can use to make this tasty cheese at home. This program is offered in partnership with The Franklin Institute as part of the Kitchen Science programming series.
