Description

Learn how to taste cheese like a professional with help from one of PCC’s resident cheese experts. In this class, you’ll travel through cheeses of all families, made with all kinds of milk — cow, sheep, goat and even buffalo. Once you’ve honed your senses of sight, smell, touch and taste with cheese, you’ll explore different pairings from a variety of fruits, nuts, meats and chocolates to discover which flavors play together just right. You’ll come away knowing how to build a cheese board that’s dressed to impress!

Menu

  • Horizontal Tasting with Brie-style cheese made from cow, goat, sheep and water buffalo milks
  • Vertical Tasting with a fresh cheese, a soft-ripened cheese, a firm cheese, a hard cheese, a washed-rind cheese and a blue cheese
  • Pairing with seasonal fruit, Marcona almonds, salami and dark chocolate

Dietary Notes: With dairy and optional meat; no eggs.

  • For your comfort, you may want to dress in layers; classroom temperatures fluctuate when ovens and stoves are in use.
  • For hands-on classes, you are welcome to bring an apron. Please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
  • You will usually receive 4 to 5 nice bites of each recipe prepared in class. We recommend eating a light meal or snack before class, as most samples are generally served towards the end of class.
