Travel to Italy right from your kitchen! Whip up your own fresh mozzarella for Caprese salad and homemade ricotta for lasagna, or just enjoy both as protein-rich snacks. Bonus farmers' cheese makes it easy to dive in with a mini 20-minute batch of fresh cheese anytime. Try them all, or just make all mozzarella; you will have everything you need, whatever you choose.

The Mozzarella, Ricotta, and Farmers Cheese Kit include:

  • Instruction Booklet
  • Unlimited Email Support as Needed

Follow the instructions, and in one hour or less, you will be eating and sharing homemade, all-natural mozzarella, ricotta, or a simple farmers' cheese! Pasteurized store-bought milk or raw farm-fresh milk both work. Make sure your store-bought milk is not ultra-pasteurized or UHT, ultra-heat pasteurized.
