Hello NYC it’s snowing again! Well, it is January. V & K enjoyed another cooking experience…. this time at Eataly Downtown, NYC at Tower 4 WTC.
Their weekend cooking classes are so kid friendly. The demonstration area is set in the back kitchen in front of a huge with a great view. This weekends menu included making fresh mozzarella; which took me down memory lane to when I sat in front of a cheese factory on the Amalfi coast eating hot freshly made mozzarella – YUM
The simple ingredients are so easy to repeat:
1 gallon of milk
1 1/2 teaspoon citric acid
1/4 teaspoon non-GMO rennet dissolved in a 1/4 cup cold water
1/3 cup of salt
1 large pot for heating
1 large bowl of cold water to place the shaped mozzarella in to cool off and serve
The delicious process of creating mozzarella was so easy and fun! Once the last pinch was made and all of the balls were cool and formed the girls took 3 of their very own pieces and placed them on an icicle pop stick, 1 piece of carrot, a few sunflower seeds and 2 bread sticks to make….. a snowman . Which they did not want to eat; but instead savored on a separate piece of mozzarella.
The awesome NYC /Italian feeling can be captured At Eataly . Our downtown friends at Fidi also has a calendar for upcoming classes.
We can’t wait to share more of these fun adventures on a new project with MomLifeTV
