We know people who know people who know people. Some time ago we figured out that the best way to get the farmhouse cheeses we go crazy for was to find the individuals as enthusiastic about making them as we are about selling them. We’ve built an international network of cheese makers and affineurs who hook us up with the artisan and farmhouse cheeses not found in other shops.

Gateway to Great Cheese - Part 1: Brie, Cheddar & Havarti {UPTOWN}

Join author and nationally recognized cheese expert Liz Thorpe for her take on Cheese 101. In her brand new book, The Book of Cheese, Liz maps out nearly 400 cheeses representing 9 common types that you’ve almost certainly heard of and tasted. These “Gateway Cheeses” are your point of entry to a specific flavor range, creating an easy transition into the vast and often-intimidating world of cheese. In other words, Liz’s advice for cheese newbies is that if you can find a cheese that you like she can show you how to find half a dozen more that you’ll love.

In this introduction to cheese, Liz will lead us through a tasting of multiple cheeses from the Brie, Cheddar & Havarti Gateways. Wine and accompaniments will be provided.

$58 – Class + Signed Copy of ‘The Book of Cheese’ at a specially discounted price!***
