I thought the instructor was very kind, witty and expert in the making of mozzarella cheese. However, it would have been helpful to suggest having a partner to help with the various steps and materials. Doing it on my own was pretty overwhelming, even though I have made ricotta cheese from scratch.

The course instructor was fantastic, she deserved a 5+. However the recommended ingredients did not work the way they should have.

This was a very fun class with Carolyn Montgomery. She was very thorough in her demonstration and teaching of how to prepare fresh mozzarella. She was very patient and imparted a sense of calm to all who attended. I have recommended this class to many of my friends already. Thank you.

Carolyn was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. Needs improvement: list of materials needs to be more specific (non ultra pasteurized milk, thermometer) Also the varying pace of the participants due to different heat sources etc., made it difficult at times to know what the next step was because I was behind the others. My product did not come out well (inedible).

Carolyn was very nice and helpful but I think this is a really tough class to teach remotely. I am taking the class again since my cheese was an epic fail.

Instructor was fantastic. Very patient and thoughtful and took her time with all of us. The other folks in the class were also great. However, the products that were sent to me through your site were not well prepped or packaged (says the rennet is meant to remain chilled, yet it did not ship insulated or with an ice pack) and I believe that lead to the cheese not turning out. I was 1 of 5 other people who did not have success with cheese. The instructor believed it was either the rennet we received through this site (as it was not chilled) or the poor quality of milk we have been seeing since quarantine. Either way, the instructor did offer another shot at the course, but I’d like to do some digging. If the cause of failure was really from the products you sent us, then I would like a credit or refund. If it was the milk, or user error, I would like another shot at the class.

Carolyn is a lovely teacher. She explained everything clearly and answered questions with patience and excitement. The camera setup/ sound was good as well. I learned a lot in the short time and am inspired to experiment more in my cocktail making.
