Mozzarella, burrata and stracciatella - CASTLEMAINE
What to expect
In this hands-on cheese making class you will learn how to make and go home with milky soft pillows of mozzarella and the best of the stretched curd cheeses including:
burrata - everyone's favourite bundle of deliciousness, with an oozy filling of creamy stracciatella
stracciatella - fine stringy strands of mozzarella, mixed with cream and salt. The decadent filling of burrata
Our day starts with morning tea and a chat about how the day will unfold. Then it’s time to roll up your sleeves and feel your whey through the curds. We work in small groups so there’s usually plenty of banter and laughter and time for one-on-one attention.
By lunchtime, as we sit around a table, stories and favourite recipes are shared and then with a smile and a full belly, it’s back into the kitchen to start stretching our curds.
And what makes my cheese making classes all the more special and insightful, I’ll give you an abundance of recipes and remedies for the leftover whey. You’ll be taking it home by the bucket load!
This collaboration with Long Paddock Cheese also includes an exclusive tour of their cheesery and a lavish cheese tasting plate showcasing their fabulous cheese.
