Join Cheese Maker Aditya Raghavan and learn how to make Crescenza (aka Stracchino). This fresh and spreadable rindless cheese originates in the Italian Alps, and can be served plated with a salad, on a pizza, in a sandwich or stirred into a risotto. In the first half hour of Addie's virtual cheese-making class you'll heat your milk and add your rennet, then we'll take a 45 minute coffee break before we reconvene to finish the cheese-making process. Addie will take you through all of the stages of making this delicious cheese, including cutting the curds and draining your cheese, then after 4 to 5 hours you'll salt then refrigerate it overnight until it's ready to serve, the next day (you'll have your class recording to refer back to as you finish your cheese through the day). While you make your cheese, you'll also learn to make Piadina flatbreads, and how to serve them as they do in Lombardy, filled with Prosciutto, Tomatoes and your home-made Crescenza Cheese. So once your cheese is ready you'll be able to whip up and grill some Piadina for your lunch or supper, using your homemade flatbreads.
