'Merica: Cheese of the Union, featuring cheeses of Cellars at Jasper Hill
Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
It's election time here in the good ole US of A. To celebrate this season of patriotism, we here at the Houston Dairymaids are focusing on what brings all citizens together, regardless of political leanings: cheese. So set your candidates aside and unite around our favorite dairy treat.
We will be serving six delightful cheeses from a range of states across our great country along with samples of tasty beverages. Learn about the history of cheese in America, and vote for your favorite to become President of the United Cheeses of America. Special guest Zoe Brickley, of Cellars at Jasper Hill, will be present to discuss her cheeses and answer any questions. We are thrilled to snag her away from her busy schedule and solidify the alliance between Texas and Vermont!
Please plan to arrive anytime after 6pm, and the tasting will begin at 6:30.
When & Where
Houston Dairymaids is a seven-year-old venture from seasoned cheese professional, Lindsey Schechter. Part business and part exploration, our goal is to meet artisan Texas cheesemakers, learn about their craft, and bring the best of their products to Houston. We look for cheeses naturally made by hand, and, when possible, from unpasteurized milk.
