Cheese…YES, PLEASE - Session 2
Join us for this new series as we take a journey exploring everything you ever wanted to know about cheese.
From how it’s made and the many different varieties to the magic that happens when paired with the right wine. Have you ever wondered which cheese can stay out of refrigeration, or what ‘aged’ really means? Each course, you’ll enjoy 5 cheeses and pair them with 4 wines.
Session 2: Unique American Artisans will be looked at as we see how far American cheese has come over the years—American cheese beyond the singles! We will explore the styles being made in theU.S. and Pacific Northwest, and learn about small production cheese making. We will taste distinctly American cheeses and the wines that love them.
