The art of making cheese and pasta
That’s Amore Cheese has kicked off its Class Program for 2022 and there are some exciting classes coming up. The Tortelloni & Ravioli Class will take place on 26th March followed by the Beginner Cheese Making Class on 9th April. Who better to learn from about making cheese than one of Melbourne’s best cheesemakers? The classes are really popular and always sell out quickly!
Whether a food connoisseur, simply a cheese lover or just looking for something new and fun to do with friends, the That’s Amore Cheese classes are an ideal way to connect with a local producer and develop some new skills.
The Tortelloni and Ravioli Class is led by Gianna Donnini, head pasta maker at Donnini’s, Carlton. Participants will be guided through the art of pasta making with this hands-on class that teaches how to make tagliatelle, spinach & ricotta tortelloni and pumpkin ravioli. From making the dough, to kneading, filling and shaping the pasta, guests will learn all the skills they need to make their own egg pasta using a domestic pasta machine.
The Beginners Cheese Making Class is for anyone who wants to learn about the full cheese making process. In the four-hour interactive workshop guests will learn how to make Italian style cheese from milk to the finished product. A few litres of milk will be transformed into Primo Sale (the mother of all cheeses), mozzarella and ricotta. The workshop is followed by a delicious Italian style lunch to chat about what has been learned and all participants will take home Primo Sale and mozzarella.
Dates for the two-hour Mozzarella Making Class have not been confirmed as yet but groups of 10 or more can book a private session. In this class guests learn the secrets to making silky smooth mozzarella in a fun and casual environment. The cheesemaker covers the basics of how the milk is transformed into curd before participants get hands-on and learn how to stretch the curd into mozzarella. They will also learn how to shape the mozzarella into bocconcini and trecce.
