I got a wild hair a couple of months ago after watching Chefs vs. City and decided I wanted to make mozzarella as Christmas gifts. Lucky for me, I married a chef who has made mozzarella more times than he can count when he was working at a hotel.
He won't let me make the curds, though. Something about curds and whey don't appeal to him.
I had to order the curds instead. *pout* But since RCC knows me so well, he's probably correct in thinking that I'll gross right out making my own cheese curds.
So, this afternoon, we'll be picking up 10# of mozzarella curds and hauling it up to the lodge for a cheese making day tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
