About the Event

Making mozzarella from scratch with a bunch of kids is fun, exciting, tasty and very, very messy... Tanja and Faline are ready for "wheyham" in the kitchen – so send your kids to make you some cheese for pizza and salad :)

Mozzarella is a southern Italian semi-soft cheese traditionally made from Italian buffalo's milk – in New Zealand, it is almost without exception made from cows' milk, which we will use during this hands-on session. After all, our bovine girls are grazing just across the road, and we have access to super fresh, healthy raw milk.

Making your own mozzarella for dinner is not hard and doesn't take very long either, but it does involve a little bit of technique. Luckily, Tanja and Faline have a lot of experience and are looking forward to passing on some tips and tricks to all the young participants.

The kids will work in teams, and at the end, each child will walk home with the recipe and their own ball of mozzarella cheese to show off.

We will be working with very hot water, and making mozzarella requires getting your hands right in – so all participants must bring their own new pair of thick kitchen gloves that fits them as well as possible. Please note that this workshop is only for children 8 years and older.

Limited to 12 children. $8 per participant. Booking essential.

This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (at education@riverside.org.nz) for workshop questions or to ask about sponsorship options.

Please note that we will be using Riverside Milk which is RAW milk and may not be suitable for everyone's consumption. The Ministry of Primary Industries advises the following: ‘Raw milk may contain microorganisms that can causeserious illness. To reduce the risk of illness, raw milk should be heated to at least 70 degree Celsius for one minute. This is critical for infants, young children, the elderly, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems.’
