Surely the only thing better than feasting on creamy fresh mozzarella is having the skills to make it yourself, any time you like. Or you could enjoy the best of both worlds, when Leichhardt's Capriccio Osteria hosts a mozzarella making class on September 27.
Here, you'll learn the art of crafting, shaping and knotting fresh mozzarella in true Italian fashion, guided by local producer Vannella Cheese's head cheesemaker Vito Minoia. This guy's a true cheese expert — he's been hand stretching curds for burrata since he was 16 years old back in Puglia, Italy.
But of course, you can't have a culinary masterclass without some good old-fashioned food appreciation, so the one-night cheese students will also sit down to a four-course taster of Capriccio's new seasonal menu. Expect a lively lineup of spring's best spoils with cheese as the hero. The whole night's activities will set you back just $49 — which, for both the feast and your newfound cheesemaking skills, seems like a good investment.
You can make a booking either online or over the phone.
