Cheese Course with Janet Fletcher: Ricotta by You

Learn to make fluffy fresh ricotta in your own kitchen. It’s the signature cheese of spring—luscious in desserts, dreamy on pasta, sublime with honey. Watch Planet Cheese publisher Janet Fletcher demonstrate stovetop ricotta, then taste it against commercial versions.

Janet will share dozens of ideas for using your homemade ricotta and demonstrate two recipes to taste: a spring herb and ricotta bruschetta and a strawberry dessert. All participants will receive printed instructions for homemade ricotta and a 10% discount for purchases made at SHED.

Janet Fletcher is a teacher, author, journalist, and publisher of Planet Cheese. Janet has written for the Oakland Tribune and San Francisco Chronicle and has authored six books. She is a three-time James Beard Award winner, and was the scriptwriter on two Beard Award-winning DVDs produced by the Culinary Institute of America. Through her writing, teaching, and cheese appreciation classes, she continues to spotlight the trends and people who make Northern California such an exhilarating place to cook, eat and work. In her spare moments between deadlines, she tends to her home garden in the Napa Valley.

We are thrilled to have Janet teach a series of seasonal cheese workshops at SHED. You can purchase tickets to all four classes with a 15% discount ($220) using the ticket link on this page. If you can’t make it to one, you can always send a friend in your stead.
