You said, "Make cheese", didn't you?
I love cheese.
Let me say that again: I love cheese.
So the combined Father's Day/Jane's b'day present that Adam and Kaci gave us was a perfect fit - tuition at a cheese-making class.
The class we attended was the first in a two-part curriculum, and dealt with fresh cheeses: ricotta, mozzarella, mascarpone and chevre. Bonny, our instructor, an Italian woman and stand-up comic, grew up in a family that made cheese as a regular part of life. In fact, I was amazed to hear that for them, making ricotta or mozzarella was just a part of normal meal preparation!
Oh my gosh! What I have been missing!
In the 3-hour class, Bonny took us thru the making of all four cheeses I mentioned above... and by that I mean that we (hands-on) made these cheeses, and then at the end of the class we ate them.
Now I ask you: Can you think of a better dessert than fresh ricotta with fruit and a glass of wine, at anchor in a beautiful, protected little harbor?
No, I didn't think so.
