What you'll learn in this cheese making class:

What could be more fun that hand-pulling your own fresh mozzarella or creating delicate creamy ricotta cheese with your own two hands? Nothing!


  • Fresh Mozzarella + Burrata
  • Fresh Ricotta Cheese
  • Buttermilk Paneer (Fresh Indian cheese for curries)
  • Cashew Cheese (Nut cheese is all the rage and quite delicious)

The class will also include a few dishes that incorporate your homemade cheeses, like crispy mozzarella sandwiches and a quick Indian curry.

Important notes:

  • Please reach out to CourseHorse for any dietary restrictions.
  • Make sure to ring the outside buzzer, even if the front door is open, so we know you are arriving!

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal (class (not including our baking or dessert classes).

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spatial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

We have a firm business days cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student.

Please note: Boot Camps require business days notice to be rescheduled.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.

Classes are not refundable.

For Culinary Boot Camps:

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time.

  • Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  • Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

Thank you for understanding!

I've participated in the cheesemaking class in 2022, and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. I really appreciated how simple the instructions were and how every question was promptly answered. As for the final "banquet", that was quite memorable and gave me ideas for dinners with friends. Though I can't say I've been making mozzarella on a weekly basis, fresh ricotta and cashew cheese have both become staples in my kitchen. Egg + ricotta + salt & chives + toast in the morning FTW! Healthy and delicious.

I cannot recommend this class highly enough. The instructor was engaging: beginning with a brief but thorough history of cheese, she took us through the geopolitical implications of certain kinds of cheese, why they started where they did and how they came to be incorporated into certain cultural identities. Then, we were able to make several kinds of cheese, some of which we were able to take home with us. You might be surprised at how quickly one can make cheese, or at how simply it comes together. Thanks to this cheesemaking workshop, I now know. Sign up for this class: you will not regret it.

I cannot recommend this class highly enough! It was fun, educational, and hands on, and the cheeses we made were so simple and delicious! The class is organized so well and I had a ton of fun learning from Erica. I can’t wait to go back for another class!
