Make Your Own Mozzarella…

They’re Back!  Our Mozzarella classes are being offered almost every Saturday, from September through May.  They are being held in the dairy, from 12 – 2pm. Class registration is $45, and class size is limited to 14 people; pre-registration is required.  Cheese heads John and Aubrey are teaching the course, which includes an in-depth cheese chemistry lesson and how to make fresh mozzarella made from Calder dairy milk, and mozzarella made from finished Belgioso curd.  You will craft and hand-stretch your very own mozzarella balls as well as Buratta and Mozzarella & Myrtle.  The temperature in the dairy, is usually between 65 and 75 degrees depending on the time of year, so please dress appropriately for warmth and wetness.

Please contact us at (734) 929-0500 if you are interested in signing up.  We’ve had a ton of requests for classes over the summer so we are expecting them to fill up quickly.

The Detroit Street Brick

Det St Brick

If you’ve never visited the Deli before, located at 422 Detroit St., you might be wondering how this cheese got it’s name.  Shaped like the bricks lining the streets of Kerrytown, the Detroit St. Brick is a dense aged goat’s milk cheese studded with cracked green peppercorns.  It has a thin white rind, with an intense soft creaminess when young, and slightly more crumbly texture when a bit older.  The Brick is most excellent crumbled on a salad or melted on a burger.  The slightly spicy, fresh flavor of the green peppercorns is well suited when paired with a glass of your favorite Sauvignon Blanc.

This month, the Detroit Street Brick is on special at the Creamery and our Farmer’s Markets.  It is priced at $22.99 a pound.  Come on by the dairy or market for a taste!

Farmer’s Markets

It has been a great season at the markets so far this year.  We are coming up on our final Westside Market of the year and to celebrate, the Sharon Hollow will be on special, 2 for $10.  Catch Mike in the parking lot of the Roadhouse tomorrow afternoon, from 3-7pm for some fresh cheese and local produce and crafts.

The Kerrytown Market is going strong on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  We are looking to be down there through October and some of Novemeber.  We haven’t quite figured out our end date yet, but will keep you posted.

Eastern Market in downtown Detroit is our newest market.  We’re there on Saturdays, from 7am until we run out of cheese, usually around 3pm, in Shed 3.  If you’ve never been to Eastern Market before, it’s definitely worth the trip.  3 giant sheds filled with vendors make up the heart of the market district.  Vendors spill out into parking lots as people flood the streets in search of local produce, meats, coffee, salsa, breads, and countless other goodies.  It feels like one big event, one giant party thrown every Saturday morning.  We hope to see you there!
