Joining a "Mozzarella Workshop" brings tons of fun, enthusiasm, and a bit of chaos, especially when it involves young children! Let your child join in this September's culinary blast with Tanja and Falinein the Riverside Kitchen.

Traditionally, Mozzarella, a semi-soft cheese originating from Southern Italy, was made with Italian buffalo's milk. However, here, in New Zealand, we've modified the process a bit. Cow’s milk, easily sourced from our local bovines grazing just beyond our street, is our milky ingredient of choice for this tactile, hands-on session. It yields healthy and incredibly fresh milk for our cheese-making process.

In our Mozzarella Workshop, children collaborate in teams, and by the time they’re done, each of them will obtain a tangible delight - their personally made mozzarella cheese, alongside a recipe. They'll carry home a sense of accomplishment and a tasty trophy.

Safety is a priority as the process involves handling hot water and getting hands directly involved. Hence, the kids should come prepared with a pair of thick kitchen gloves ideally suiting their hands. Also, it's essential to note that the workshop is only suited for kids aged 8 and above.
