September 25, 7-9pm Cheese 101
Are you a cheese lover? Do you want to know more about it? Cheese 101 is the place to start. Sit and relax over a plate of some of our best cheeses (with a little wine to wash it down, of course) as Laura and Chris bare the basics. We’ll guide you through a scrumptious tasting of fresh and bloomy cheeses, washed rind and aged, plus a variety of cow, sheep, and goat cheese, all while learning about cheese-making. Leave with your new-found knowledge and order with confidence the next time you’re at a cheese counter.

October 23, 7-9pm: And the Winner IS... American Cheese Society 2012
In August the American Cheese Society holds its annual conference and competition where hundreds of American-made cheeses go head to head to determine which ones will be deemed the best of the best in their specific categories.

We’ll taste some of the winners and discuss the revolution in American made cheeses.
