Join us for our first Mozzarella Making class of the season. This class is anything but cheesy.  No, really, this class is the "whey" to go!  All jokes aside, if you're looking to up your cheese game--look no further!  This class will guide participants through a recipe for making traditional mozzarella cheese.  Mozzarella is a "quick" cheese, meaning participants will get to enjoy tasty samples at the end of the evening!  Zero previous experience or knowledge required. This class will take place at Bread and Butter Farm in Shelburne and will be led by Phoebe Tucker, an educator, artist, and enjoyer of all thing dairy. If you are interested in driving others to this workshop or are looking for a ride, please call or e-mail Elena Palermo at (802) 861-9757 or epalermo@citymarket.coop.

Brot Bakery

Nestled in the hills of Fairfax, Vermont, Brotbakery was opened in 2012 by bakeress Heike Meyer. Growing up in Germany, Heike was heavily influenced by the rustic, hearty country loaves you still find in many European bakeries, with inspiration from the rich food traditions and bread skills in the Americas. Over the summer, you can find hand-shaped breads freshly baked in the wood-fired oven at the Brotbakery along with other ancient grain breads and even some unusual pastries and cakes.

Join us for a tour of the bakehouse, school & kitchen and an evening focused on tasting different breads & pastries, learning about the process of making natural sourdough breads & a short hands on introduction to baking with sourdough. All participants will have the opportunity to shape and bake their own bread in the wood fired oven in addition to taking home their very own sourdough starter! We will all be meeting at the Brotbakery. If you are interested in driving others to this workshop or are looking for a ride, please call or e-mail Elena Palermo at (802) 861-9757 or epalermo@citymarket.coop.
