Some pronounce it matza-rella, others say mutza-rella, but no matter how the word rolls off your tongue, there’s one thing for sure: fresh mozzarella is absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the ultimate cheese-pull delicacy for those unforgettable, Instagram-able moments.
But seriously, who really knows what it takes to make mozzarella all by yourself? Not many, if any at all-- until now, that is. So with a little help from Kesté Pizza & Vino’s world-renowned chef and owner, Roberto Caporuscio, who was born and raised on a dairy farm in Italy (where he first developed his culinary skills that include both producing and selling cheese) alongside his skilled cheesemakers, you can now come and learn how to make fresh mozzarella-- so you can do it from the comfort of your own home afterwards!
Following in the footsteps of their wildly successful and sold-out weekly event series, 'Make Pizza, Drink (Bottomless) Wine & Beer', Hungry Pop is proud to announce 'Make Mozzarella, Drink (Bottomless) Wine & Beer' going down at 3 PM on Sunday, June 9th, 23rd & 30th, and Sunday, July 14th & 28th.
Come prepared to roll up your sleeves with Roberto and his team at Kesté’s Fulton Street location, where you’ll spend two hours learning how to make (and taste, duh!) the freshest mozzarella you’ll find on the entire island of Manhattan.
*Please note: If your group is 10 people or more (birthday parties & corporate/team-building events are welcome!), please contact aW5mbyB8IGhlbGxvaHVuZ3J5cG9wICEgY29t to discuss setting up a private event.*
Not only will you gain hands-on experience from Mr. Caporuscio and his staff, but you’ll also enjoy complimentary glasses of house red & white wines and ice cold bottles of imported Peroni beer for two hours (did somebody say, “SUNDAY FUNDAY!?”) while learning first-hand about fresh mozzarella from this infamous dairy farmer turned Neapolitan pizza-maker.
You’ll also have deliciously cheesy appetizers like fried burrata, fresh mozzarella rolled with prosciutto and arugula salad, and Neapolitan pizza served up, alongside a main dish of fresh mozzarella that you’ll help to make and top off with extra virgin olive oil. Plus, after chowing down on a lil’ doughy dessert made with everyone’s favorite midnight snack, Nutella, you may get to go home with a gift card (or three!) after being awarded as one of the best fresh mozzarella-makers of the afternoon!
By the way, Roberto and his team are consistently called upon by numerous restaurants throughout the United States for private consultations and courses at which he issues certification to aspiring restaurateurs around the world-- so yeah, they're about as legit as it gets when it comes to this type of stuff.
So grab your friends, family, or significant other(s) and join Hungry Pop at Kesté Pizza & Vino Fulton, located at 77 Fulton Street, on Sunday afternoons for a taste of Chees-us and test out your mozzarella-making skills (not to mention, your bottomless wine and beer-drinking ability!).
If you’re looking for the most interactive food experience unlike any other happening in New York City right now, this is it-- or, kesté, as they say in Naples!
