California Dreamin’: A Celebration of California Cheese

We all know and love Humboldt Fog and Mt. Tam, but there is a wide world of California cheese yet undiscovered by the everyday cheese lover. Join Waldemar Albrecht and Rachel Perez on a journey through the Golden State to experience some lesser known gems and some California classics. There's a reason that happy cows come from California! This event has a Google Hangouts video call. Join: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/calendar/Y2hlZXNlc2Nob29sc2FuZnJhbkBnbWFpbC5jb20.03k9basuuh7o6c1hoq8lf8kbia?hs=121

Italianissimo!

From the Italian Alps to Sicily’s sheep farms, Italy is cheese country. Seems like every little village has its own pecorino or robiola or cave-aged blue. We’ll meander the back roads of the Italian “boot” tonight, tasting small-production cheeses that I bet you don’t know, and some superior versions of the classics. The country that gave us Parmigiano-Reggiano has so many more cheeses to love.

5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
