To make the tastiest mozzarella possible (and to have shoulders to cry against if something goes wrong): invite some friends.
Technically, it does not take more than half an hour or so to make. We of course learned a few things in the process (read: we spent HOURS in the kitchen) and simultaneously baked a pizza.
Except for that there is a handle-hot-cheese part, it is fairly non-dangerous and soothing to make mozzarella.
While waiting for the milk to go stiff, you can dance.
And before you know it: the mozzarella is ready!
