Tickets to this event will be available August 8th at 10AM
About the workshop:
Do you ever wonder what exactly "hand-pulled" mozzarella is? Do you want to know why that ball of burrata at specialty shops is $15? Come learn what the fuss is all about, and see how delicious fresh mozzarella can be!
Sharon Ardiana, the chef and owner of Gialina and Ragazza Pizzerias will lead this 2 hour, hands-on class, all about fresh mozzarella. In this workshop we’ll learn the art of pulling fresh mozzarella- the delicate texture will be utterly different than the lumps of plastic-sealed pizza mozzarella you buy at grocery stores. This class will focus on the process of "pasta filata" -- we will start with fresh cow's milk curds, which will be heated and stretched by hand. Note: Making the curds from scratch is a difficult chemistry experiment, and it can be frustrating for the most seasoned chef.
At the end of the workshop, you will have stretched several balls of mozzarella to take home, and you'll have a better understanding and appreciation for this Italian classic.
Please bring your own reusable container to take home mozzarella.
