Event description

Description

Join author and national cheese expert Liz Thorpe for a deep dive into one of our all-time favorite subjects. We'll choose a few beloved styles, from Cheddar to blue, and taste multiple versions of each (with wine, of course!) to gain a deeper understanding of the details that set each one apart. Terroir, methods of production and aging, pasteurized vs. un-pasteurized, cow vs. sheep vs. goat: we'll leave no stone (or tomme) unturned. You'll leave with extensive notes on each cheese as well as Liz's evergreen wisdom on choosing the right cheeses and assembling the perfect platters. No prior knowledge required -- a love of cheese is the only pre-requisite.

Is there anything in particular you want to explore? Let us know via the ticket order form -- Liz will shape her class according to the first 10 requests!


About the Instructor

When Liz Thorpe‘s travelogue and compendium of American cheese, The Cheese Chronicles was published, reviewers said, “Young and hip, Liz accomplishes the impossible, making cheese seem sexy.” Liz has worked in cheese for sixteen years, for the first decade as the Vice President of New York’s Murray’s Cheese and more recently as the founder of consulting company The People’s Cheese. Her definitive tome The Book of Cheese was published in September 2017 and nominated for an IACP award as the year’s best reference book. Liz talks cheese with Rachael Ray, The Wall Street Journal and starred in Epicurious’s inaugural Price Points video—with 5.2M viewers it’s their most popular video ever. After all this time, she still thinks cheese is sexy.
