If you think mozzarella cheese's only task in life is to make pizza delicious and stringy then, think again. This appetising and traditional southern Italian cheese is also used in the preparation of many pasta dishes and, most famously, served with sliced tomatoes and basil in Caprese salad.
Now you can make sure you always have some of this delicious cheese on hand for your home-style Italian feasts by learning some of the simple methods for making handmade, great tasting cheese in your own home. Come along and find out the basics of good cheese making and how to make your own mozzarella cheese using common kitchen equipment. The Making Mozzarella Demonstration will be presented by Valerie Pearson, author of Home Cheese Making in Australia and founder of Green Living Australia at the Logan Hyperdome Library, 66 – 70 Mandew Street, Shailer Park on Saturday, 20 January, 2018 from 10.00am until 11.30am.
Entry to the demonstration is FREE but bookings are essential, so register your interest here before it's too late. For more information on this particular event, you can also call the Logan Hyperdome Library on 3412 4120.
Logan City Libraries also produce a very informative magazine, What's On with information on all the events being staged by the nine libraries in Logan City. The current magazine covers all the events until the end of January, 2018. Otherwise, you can phone on 3412 5420 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Did you know that mozzarella cheese is traditionally made with water buffalo milk? It's true, Mozzarella di bufala is traditionally made from the milk of the Italian Mediterranean buffalo. I didn't even know there were buffalos in Italy. So make sure you get your place at this interesting, informative and beneficial (especially for my fellow pizza lovers) demonstration. There's nothing better than a morning of learning something new while you're having fun.
