Cheeses of Italy 101

Cheesemaker Events

We all know Italy produces wonderful cheeses. But why is the variety so perplexingly wide? Why is mozzarella di bufala tart and a fior di latte mozzarella sweet? What accounts for the tenderness of a Pecorino Toscano and the brute forcefulness of a sheep's milk cheese from Sardinia? To fully understand the range of style and flavor of Italian cheese, one must understand the regional characteristics and culture. This class will provide a tasting tour of all the major cheese-producing regions of Italy. The cheeses will be paired with traditional wines and accompaniments that bring out the very best flavors of Italian cheese. Buon Gusto! Time: 6:00 - 8:00pm Date: Monday, December 9th, 2019 Instructor: Chris Munsey
