Make your own mozzarella cheese in 30 minutes at home when you join BriarPatch Food Co-op and Hether Frayer on Zoom for this fun virtual culinary class, “Curd Your Enthusiasm” 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23.

Co-op owners will receive $5 credit toward the purchase of class ingredients. An ingredient/ shopping list and recipes will be sent out one week before the class.

Upon completion of the class, participants will have fresh, delicious mozzarella cheese in hand for making favorites like caprese salad, pasta dishes, pizza and more!

The class is part of an ongoing series of DIY cooking and beverage classes hosted by BriarPatch designed to build a stronger, more connected co-op community in 2021.

Hether Frayer began masquerading as the Fresh Food Fairy in 2011 to encourage young people to eat more fruits and vegetables.  Whether it is a hands-on cooking class (in person or virtual), a bike blender smoothie party or a scavenger hunt for Fresh Food Friends at the Farmer’s Market, she is passionate about sharing her love of nutritious, delicious and local foods with her community,  while celebrating all of the fun and joy good food holds.

Hether is a first generation Iraqi Chaldean-American. Her family originates from a small farming village about 8 miles northeast of Mosul called Tel Keppe. Her dad was born in Bagdad, and like many other Chaldean families, his family immigrated to Detroit in the 1950s. Family and food are at the center of Chaldean culture.

Hether is the cooking class coordinator at PFC Natural Grocery and Deli in Kalamazoo, as well as board chair.  She is also a Columinate Consultant supporting cooperative and non-profit boards with governance and leadership development.
