Make Mozzarella Drink Wine (77 Fulton St, Manhattan @ 3 PM)

kestepizza Thanks to @volofabio and his friends for last night making pizza in our Pizza Academy Foundation in @kestefulton in the FiDi Manhattan. @bennybenassi @francescachillemi___ #pizzatime #keste #pizzaacademy #pizzaclass #quityourjob #makepizza

Some pronounce it matza-rella, others say mutza-rella, but no matter how the word rolls off your tongue, there's one thing for sure: fresh mozzarella is absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the ultimate cheese-pull delicacy for those unforgettable, Instagram-able moments.

But seriously, who really knows what it takes to make mozzarella all by yourself? Not many, if any at all -- until now, that is. So with a little help from Keste Pizza & Vino's world-renowned chef and owner, Roberto Caporuscio, who was born and raised on a dairy farm in Italy (where he first developed his culinary skills that include both producing and selling cheese), you can now come and learn how to make fresh mozzarella-- so you can do it from the comfort of your own home afterwards!
