About the Event

In this online workshop we’ll be demonstrating how to make a simple fresh ricotta cheese and the most flavorful, cultured butter at home with very few ingredients!

What you’ll learn:

  • How to transform whole milk and fresh cream into cheese and butter
  • Which tools you need for success
  • What ingredients work best

What you’ll need to make Ricotta with us:

  • 1/2 gallon of whole milk - avoid UHT (ultra-high temperature pasteurized) milk. Local Bay Area brands like Strauss, Alexandre and St. Benoit recommended
  • Sea salt
  • 1/3-1/2 cup lemon juice, white distilled vinegar, or citric acid
  • Large 1 gallon stock pot
  • Silicone or other heat proof spatula
  • Large colander or strainer and a large bowl or pot to strain into
  • A couple feet of muslin cloth or a fine woven cheesecloth to line the colander or strainer
  • Access to an internet ready computer or tablet

What you’ll need to make Cultured Butter with us:

  • 1 pint of heavy / whipping cream
  • Buttermilk Starter Culture or 2 tbsp of live, unflavored yogurt or kefir
  • 1 quart-sized jar
  • Cloth cover

Advance Prep for Cultured Butter:

  • 1-2 days before class combine 1 pint of heavy cream with one packet of Buttermilk Starter or 2 tbsp yogurt or kefir in a clean 1-quart jar. Cover jar with a thin cloth and secure with a rubber band. Let ferment at room temperature, out of direct sunlight. Stir 1-2 times a day. Take note, the cream will naturally thicken. This is ok! Keep at room temperature to use in class and have the jar lid handy.
