Three Cheeses in Three Hours with Wine
Learn to make 3 different cheeses in only 3 hours while you sample thoughtfully paired wines. Our most popular class!
Learn how to make 3 distinct and delicious types of cheese: mozzarella, chevre (fresh goat cheese) & burrata. This 3-hour class walks you through the history of cheesemaking, important facts about milk quality and differences as well as the complex biology and chemistry behind turning milk into tasty cheese curds and protein-rich whey.
Plus during the class, you'll enjoy a fun sampling of local, sustainable wines from Wente Family Vineyards in this fast-paced, hands-on workshop. (Don't drink? No worries - we have other options on hand!)
Each group of students starts with their own gallon of milk and finesses it over the course of the class into rich, stretchy mozzarella. Enjoy some of your finished mozzarella, then we'll turn the rest into creamy, dreamy burrata. We'll also demonstrate in time-delay fashion how to craft a fresh, tangy goat cheese along with tips to make your goat cheese appear as several different types of artisanal cheeses through various preparation techniques. You'll gain all the knowledge needed to create your own cheese platter instead of buying store-bought cheeses.
And don't worry about going hungry - we'll be sampling yummy cheese and delicious wine along the way!
