Potlucks

UPDATE: Make Mozzarella Potlucks Announced!

By • April 10, 2012 • 161 Comments

UPDATE! We've announced the hosts of the 30 potlucks happening around the country -- join one near you!

Last October, the FOOD52 community came together to celebrate the release of our cookbook -- and the subsequent potlucks were quite the festive events. We love it when our digital community gets together in the real world, and we want to do it all over again: we're thrilled to announce our Make Mozzarella Potlucks, sponsored by California Olive Ranch and scheduled for the weekend of April 20, 2012.

We'd like you to get together and host events in the houses of FOOD52ers around the world to make mozzarella from scratch (don't worry, we'll show you how!), enjoy a lovely potluck meal, and have a tasting of California Olive Ranch's two most popular olive oils. Each potluck host will receive the Chef's Favorite 2-Bottle Tasting Set: a 500ml bottle of Arbequina (rated the number one California-grown olive oil by Cooks Illustrated) and a 500ml bottle of Miller's Blend (winner of gold medals in Italy, Israel, and California) as well as tasting notes to share with guests during the meal.

The deadline to sign up for hosting a potluck is Friday, March 30. We have Tasting Sets for only 30 potlucks, so pipe up in the comments now! You'll have three weeks to plan the potluck with your guests -- not to mention learn how to make mozzarella! -- before the weekend of April 20. Don't forget: we'll be accepting all photos, videos, recipes, and write-ups to share on FOOD52! 

How to Get Involved

WANT TO HOST A POTLUCK? Post a comment below to sign up before Friday, March 30 -- be sure to tell us your city or metro area so that others can join. We'll be periodically updating this post with locations and hosts. We'll get in contact with you to send the California Olive Ranch Host package. All potlucks have been claimed! Click here to message a host near you and join a potluck.

WANT TO JOIN AN EXISTING POTLUCK? Click here to view the potlucks and message hosts for details.

Looking to drum up excitement for your potluck? Get in on the fun with the Twitter hashtag #makemozzarella. And we hope you'll tweet and Facebook photos of your party in real time when the potluck date rolls around!

Never made mozzarella before? No worries! Check out our step-by-step guide to the process here.

Don't know a thing about olive oil? Keep an eye on Feed52 for a primer to the many flavors, colors, and scents of California Olive Ranch's offerings.

Can't make it to a scheduled potluck? Don't worry, we've got a fantastic Twitter and Facebook giveaway coming up as the potluck weekend nears. And on the week of the potluck itself, we'll be featuring a fantastic deal in the Shop to buy the Chef's Favorite 2-Bottle Tasting Set!

Let's make mozzarella together, and don't forget to sign up to host a potluck below!

That's a great idea AntoniaJames. I am about to order some olive oil in bulk from them, so I'll be sure to pass it on. We had the BEST time making mozzarella and designing our "Chick Pizzas". We even invented a Food52 Fig Olive pizza using Kayb's Fig and Olive Tapenade as the base. It was the so goo with pears and mozzarella on top. Here's the blog post: http://www.jacksonholefoodie...

Wow, I'm really looking forward to your next post, phoebe. I've seen several sources that suggest using the microwave for heating. That makes a lot of sense! We spent a lot of time heating whey to use as the stretching medium -- we made three batches of cheese and the whey cooled down before the cheese was stretched and shaped -- it got rather messy , too. I have a gallon of milk left and was planning to make another batch when I finish my time-sensitive client projects in a few days. But now, raw milk?! I am eager to hear more! ;O)

Phoebe

over 2 years ago phoebe's pure food

hey there antonia, you can find my 2nd post (the food everyone brought, my cheese experiment, and olive oil paring) on my blog.... this was all a kind pricey experiment but so much fun! I found after many gallons and much reading raw milk is what worked. I could not find low heat treated, even in the local brand. Also found that adding an entire rennet tablet (junket brand) sped up the set.
Took my last gallon of milk to my nephews last night to teach them. FUN!
heating the whey... i tried the double boiler which was effective but messy to clean. Microwave made it fast and easy. not as romantic :) good luck with the next batch..... one of my guests made dulce de leche with her left over whey. here is her post ... she's a food 52'er http://mygardenerstable...

This is so helpful! I just (yesterday) noticed too that my darling independent grocery store sells "Junket" tablets. I was calling around everywhere looking for tablets, and no one had them. I finally got one (just one, can you believe it?) in a "cheesemaking kit" from Sur La Table. I had zero time due to the demands of my law practice, and that was the only option I had, mostly due to SLT's evening store hours, so I just bit the bullet. I had tried one batch the week before using liquid rennet, but it didn't turn out, primarily I think because I didn't get the stretching liquid hot enough. So looking forward to trying with raw milk and using the microwave. Thanks again! ;o)

Phoebe

over 2 years ago phoebe's pure food

glad you located the tablets. i'm lucky to live in farm country. in every recipe i have seen it reads that the cheese will set in 5 minutes. that never happened once, in all of our batches. one gals cheese was still a loose "cottage cheese" texture after 15 min so we added the other 1/2 of the rennet and it set right up. the best site to trouble shoot is http://www.cheesemaking.... good luck! look forward to hearing how it went.

A quick report/advisory for people who have yet to begin your mozza making. The editors are absolutely right about making the liquid that you use for stretching as hot as possible. It makes a huge difference. We made three different batches. The last one, with really hot whey -- we used that instead of water, on hardlikearmour's suggestion -- turned out best, at least in terms of making the cheese easier to stretch. ;o)

How about I do some potluck hosting honors here in Prague, Czech Republic? Having already learned to make a killer ricotta from the Food52 community, I'm sure that this mozzarella will be to die for too.

Hi Pheobe,
I will be making my way back to Carlisle from Philadelphia on Sunday the 21st and would love to stop in to make Mozz! I'd have three other folks in the car who would love that too. I think onetribegourmet is in the LeHigh Valley. And I have a cheese-making friend in Mechanicsburg, too and another food writer I bet I could convince to come along.
Cheers,
Christine Burns Rudalevige aka cheese1227
