Join us on Sunday June 27th (1PM to 2PM EST) to learn how to make everyone's favorite grilling cheese in under an hour! We'll be making fresh halloumi from scratch with Farmsteady's Italian Cheesemaking Kit! Hosted by Cheese Grotto Founder Jessica Sennett.
Get ready for 4th of July weekend by learning how to make a quick-set Halloumi from scratch! Halloumi or haloumi is a semi-hard, unripened cheese traditionally made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk in Cyprus, Greece. It can sometimes be made with cow's milk, as we'll be doing in our class. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. This property makes it a popular meat substitute and is wonderful served alongside grilled vegetables and meats for your next backyard BBQ.
The cheesemaking kit includes equipment and ingredients to Halloumi and/or other Italian cheeses like mozzarella, burrata, ricotta, mascarpone. All you'll need to source is 1 gallon of pasteurized whole cow's milk from the store. (Note: Ultra-pasteurized cow milk will not work, please avoid that and check the label!)
All the ingredients in the kit are good for at least 18 months. Makes 8 batches of cheese.
Sunday, June 27th from 1 to 2:00pm EST: We'll make Haloumi from scracth!
Summer Cooking Recipes for Haloumi will be emailed with purchase.
