That’s Amore Pasta and Cheese-Making Classes
That’s Amore Cheese is letting you in on the secrets to Italian pasta and cheese-making, with a series of hands-on workshops in the factory’s demonstration kitchen.
The classes are open to everyone, from beginners to cheese-making enthusiasts looking to hone their craft.
For those wanting to learn the ins and outs of crafting formaggio, the Beginners Cheese-Making Class is a comprehensive, full-day affair. On July 10 and September 18, the five-hour class will give you the tools to turn a few litres of milk into Italian cheeses such as Primo Sale ("first salt"), mozzarella and ricotta. As part of the lesson, students also dig into a delicious Italian lunch with a glass of wine to match.
For a more casual approach to cheese-making, the two-hour mozzarella class on August 15 covers the basics, giving you the skills to shape your handmade mozzarella into bocconcini and trecce. There’s even a guided cheese-tasting session at the end (accompanied by wine, of course).
On July 3 and 31, and August 28, chef Gianna Donnini (head pasta maker at Donnini’s) is giving tips on making pasta, showing you how to craft tagliatelle, spinach & ricotta tortelloni and pumpkin ravioli using a pasta machine.
