"The Flower of the Milk" Luncheon with Jasper Mirabile

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday September 6

11:30 AM  –  1:00 PM

Chef and radio-show host Jasper Mirabile loves fresh tomato season. And what goes better with the end-of-sumer’s juicy, ripe orbs than “The Flower of the Milk,” the Italian translation for stretching the proteins that make mozzarella? Mirabile will demonstrate how to make fresh mozzarella, a menu item made table-side at Jasper’s Ristorante, the Mirabile family’s revered restaurant, which opened in 1954. With a few deft moves, the accomplished chef will show how easy it is to make two other delicious fresh Italian cheeses, burrata and ricotta. During the class, enjoy a three-course luncheon that includes a limoncello spritzer, a salad of heirloom tomatoes, fresh burrata cheese drizzled with a pesto crema; summer pasta (cut pasta, heirloom tomatoes, red chili peppers, extra-virgin olive oil, Sicilian bread crumbs and n’duja, or andouille paste, finished with a spoon of fresh ricotta) and XV Olive Oil Torta & Basil Gelato. 

Located under the eaves of the Missouri Barn at Powell Gardens.
