I’m the author of three books on cheese and the publisher of the Planet Cheese blog, and I want to introduce you to some of the cheeses I love best. Over nine evenings, each devoted to a different theme, you'll sample exceptional wheels from France, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and all across the U.S.— accompanied by fine wines (or, in August, some favorite craft beers). Come once, twice...or every time.
We’ll gather for an aperitif and hors d’oeuvre, then sit down for our tasting. I’ll guide you through the selections and help you boost your cheese IQ. You’ll be a more knowledgeable consumer and a smarter cheese shopper when you leave.
This year’s highlights: Raw-Milk Cheese Showcase in May, a first for the WCT; Sheep’s Milk Cheeses from Near and Far in June, another theme we have not yet explored; and a New & Notable from Europe class in October to introduce you to the next big stars.
During these lively and informal sessions, you'll sample a variety of cheese styles and hone your tasting skills. I'll also share tips on how to select, store and serve cheese. World-class cheeses—different every time. Treat a friend. Bring a date. Or purchase classes as a gift. Taken my classes before? Welcome back! You’ll meet many new cheeses this year.
Classes are 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Class size is limited and reservations are required.
