Make Your Own Mozzarella and Burrata Cheese

June 9, 2019 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Trystan Sandvoss, Cheesemaker with Goat

Learn to make fresh mozzarella in 30 minutes then take it one step further and turn the mozzarella into delicious burrata.

Learn to make fresh mozzarella in 30 minutes, with hands-on instruction from expert cheese maker Trystan of First Light Farm & Creamery.  Once we stretch and enjoy our mozzarella, we will transform this delicious cheese into Burrata.

Burrata cheese is a mozzarella innovation straight from the famous Puglia Region of Southern Italy, in which we stuff the mozzarella with a variety of fillings to create an over-the-top decadent Burrata.  You will take home your fresh Mozzarella and Burrata cheese, and build your own Southern Italian cheese plate including cured meat, olives, roasted vegetables and fresh bread!

About Trystan:

Trystan Sandvoss, owner and master cheesemaker, Farmington, NY.  Trystan’s cheese journey began on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State,  where he trained with some of the most heralded cheesemakers in the Pacific Northwest, and milked a lot of goats!   In 2010, Trystan moved back home to New York to build First Light Farm & Creamery, a farmstead goat dairy that started with 2 brothers and 17 goats.  First Light’s goat cheese is found on the menus of the finest restaurants in New York State, including New York Kitchen!


In 2018, Trystan partnered with Old Chatham Creamery to move their Hudson Valley creamery to a brand new, state-of-the-art creamery in the Finger Lakes region, opening Spring of 2019.  Old Chatham Creamery is the most awarded sheep milk creamery in the United States.  Today, First Light and Old Chatham cheese and yogurt can be found at your local Wegmans, and all across the country, even back in Washington State!
