San Francisco Milk Maid
Just took a great cheese making class tonight through City College, put on by this lady: http://www.sfmilkmaid.com/
Our class was on Mozzarella. It was my first time attempting cheese, and I found the class very hands-on, informative and fun. Louella is a lively teacher who knows her stuff. Went home with throbbing hands, a few lovely, snowy, fresh cheese balls, rennet, and a ton of curd to make more cheese in the next day or so. Looking at her website, the classes seem pricey, but through City College (which I found out through TastingTable.com), a two-night, 2-hour class was only $70 total, plus a $22 materials fee. Totally worth it and I'd do it again.
Thank you for your recommendation, mariacarmen! We did a four-hour Mozzarella Madness class/party through the Milk Maid yesterday and I think everyone enjoyed the experience immensely. It's a fun and informative way to learn about cheese making.
We had a group of 13 and it was held at a friend's home. The cost turned out to be around $36 per person. We learned about mozzarella and ricotta making and most of us (if not all) are interested in doing another class in the near future.
