New Jersey Specialty Foods Shops Offering Year-Round Cheesemaking Classes
It's not quite the season for fresh caprese salad, but several New Jersey specialty foods shops are now offering year-round mozzarella-making classes -- well before the tomatoes are ripe on the vine. Olsson's Fine Foods in Princeton, Cherry Grove Farm in Lawrenceville, and The Grape Escape in South Brunswick are just three of many who have made it their mission to offer a bit of DIY cheesemaking culture to their local communities.
Olsson’s, which moved to Princeton from the Trenton farmers’ market in 2011, is one of several places in New Jersey that regularly give mozzarella classes. And though there are other cheesemaking options — ricotta also can be learned in a morning or an afternoon — mozzarella may be the favorite.
