Last weekend, 30 groups of FOOD52ers gathered together all over the country to make mozzarella from scratch at our very first Make Mozzarella Potluck – and we couldn’t be more grateful. Everyone went above and beyond. There was homemade pizza, freshly baked bread, and more, all using freshly-pulled mozzarella and olive oil from California Olive Ranch. (Don't forget that you can buy your own in the FOOD52 Shop!)
Now, take a moment to check out some highlights below!
