Homemade Mozzarella Two Ways With Barbara Jenness

Together we’ll make a quick 30-minute Mozzarella and finish a more traditional batch as well. Participants will get the hands-on experience of stretching the cheese and will gain a well-rounded view of the production of traditional mozzarella, with demonstration, recipes, and complete instruction. Barbara will also discuss uses for this wonderful cheese and will show how Barrata is made from Mozzarella.
