    1. I took a really fun class at Andrew's Cheese Shop in Santa Monica. We made mozarella. They pour prosecco....serve pizzas and bruschetta....and you rotate in small groups for the "hands-on" part. Great fun. I think he does it monthly.

              You are so welcome. I have to warn you once you start making your own there is no going back. A tip: Trader Joe's organic milk has excellent flavor. Best of luck.
