Craft mozzarella and ricotta cheese from scratch in this intro to cheesemaking class.

In this introductory cooking class, you'll learn how to make fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheese under the guidance of Chef Laura. Simple cheeses contain simple ingredients, and you'll be delighted by how easy it is to create fresh cheese with a bit of milk, salt and acidity.

Once you've hand-pulled the mozzarella and whipped up the ricotta, you'll create an heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad with pesto as well as savory ricotta and mushroom toast. Finish the class with refreshing ricotta ice cream infused with pistachios and berries.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
