Cheese Class - February - Cheeses of Switzerland
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
This is Cheese Class
What: A monthly class with Central Bottle's Cheesemonger Stephanie Santos. She'll talk, taste and educate on all things cheese. We think if half of the passion and enthusiasm Stephanie has for cheese wares off on you, the world will be a better place. Oh, and, you might learn something new.
Who: Stephanie came to Central Bottle via the BL Gruppo where she oversaw the cheese programs at both The Butcher Shop and Menton. She's honed her teaching skills through many, many staff briefings and classes at Stir. She's made her impression here at Central Bottle by championing artisan American cheeses.
Special Guest: Jonathan Richardson, former Cheesemonger in Chicago, now brilliantly informed sales rep to importer Columbia Cheese in New York City. His specialty? Yup, Alpine-style cheeses.
This month: Alpine cheese? Mountain cheese? Sea level cheese? We don't actually call cheeses made at sea level, 'sea level cheese', but why are the Swiss particularly proud of what happens 1000 meters up? Tonight we'll discuss and taste old recipes of both firm and soft styles of Alpine cheeses with a few American inspirations making an appearance.
Other things to know: We often like to demonstrate wine and beer pairings at most of our tastings. We also keep class small for interactive conversations and to keep class to the aloted time.
