What you'll learn in this cheese making class:

Mild and milky, smooth and silky: any way you stretch it, I love fresh mozzarella! In this live online crash course I'll teach you how to make it at home, from home! First I'll set you straight on coagulation as I tell you how milk turns from fluid to firm curds. 

Then I'll demonstrate how the mozzarella is made. You'll have a chance to roll up our sleeves and follow along as I show you how to turn curds into the beautiful balls that we know as fresh mozzarella. 

Learn about selecting the right curd, proper water temperature, amount of salt and how to pull/fold to make your own mouth-watering ball of this Italian staple.

No experience is required! The ingredients list is below if you'd like to try to make the mozzarella at home. I use ingredients that are easy to find at local markets and equipment available in every home kitchen!

The $50 class option (see full schedule list below) includes Citric Acid and Rennet being shipped to you. Note you must enroll at least 3 business days before the class to allow for shipping timelines. Additionally, the materials are non-refundable.

About the Instructor:

Carolyn Montgomery is a master Mixologist, Chef and Cabaret Performer, garnering top awards and reviews in all three fields for a career spanning 25 years. She owned a restaurant in Manhattan for eight years, and deeply enjoys teaching people a skill they will easily master under her expert guidance. Come and meet the woman that the New York Times calls a smart, sophisticated and hilarious storyteller, while you laugh and learn.

Materials needed to fully participate:

  • 1 tsp rennet (animal or vegetable, tablet or liquid). Note this will be shipped to you if you purchased the $50 class
  • 1 tsp citric acid. Note this will be shipped to you if you purchased the $50 class
  • 1 Gallon Organic Whole Milk (No ultra pasteurized milk. Homogenized is fine.)
  • A burner or heat source for cooking
  • Sauce pot that will hold a gallon of milk with a well fitting lid
  • Colander
  • Large Mixing Bowl that colander will fit into)
  • Sauce pot to heat water (about two quarts) or electric kettle
  • Knife (anything that will cut through soft curd)
  • Slotted spoon
  • Rubber Gloves (if your hands are sensitive to heat)
  • Ice for the ice bath at the end

Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?
You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?
Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Instructor was fantastic. Very patient and thoughtful and took her time with all of us. The other folks in the class were also great. However, the products that were sent to me through your site were not well prepped or packaged (says the rennet is meant to remain chilled, yet it did not ship insulated or with an ice pack) and I believe that lead to the cheese not turning out. I was 1 of 5 other people who did not have success with cheese. The instructor believed it was either the rennet we received through this site (as it was not chilled) or the poor quality of milk we have been seeing since quarantine. Either way, the instructor did offer another shot at the course, but I’d like to do some digging. If the cause of failure was really from the products you sent us, then I would like a credit or refund. If it was the milk, or user error, I would like another shot at the class.
