About the workshop:
Cheese Basics: History, lactose and tasting
Join Sophie Mosgrove, Manager and resident cheesemonger at Salumeria, for an afternoon full of lactose! This workshop will include a brief cheese history, cheese vocabulary, a discussion of the basic differences between cheese types, from soft to hard, cow and beyond. And yes! There will be tasting involved. Sophie will talk about how to create the perfect cheese plate, explaining how to pick sure-shot winners and the appropriate accoutrements.
About the instructor:
Growing up in the Bay Area, Sophie has always had a taste for cheese. Her appreciation began at the ripe age of 5, asking for brie and baguette sandwiches for lunch but it wasn't until she returned to San Francisco after college that the passion truly flourished. Gaining experience at some of California's most notable cheese counters, Sophie has evolved her love of lactose into the ultimate dream job.
