Participants work in a group to create the cheese: they pour the milk, ladle and scoop the curds, and within 60 minutes they have a delicious, fresh ricotta cheese ready to be enjoyed by the group.

Upon completion, Davis shares various seasonally inspired ways to serve the cheese, using local herbs, jams and produce. All participants leave with their own cheesecloth and ladles to continue the cheesemaking experience at home.
