28 APRIL 2021, 7PM - CHEESE 101: BACK TO THE BASICS
Our most popular class! Our cheesemongers will help you broaden your knowledge of one of our favorite subjects. We will talk about the history and process of cheesemaking, the most common styles of cheese you'll find at a cheese shop like ours, and how our favorite modern-day cheesemakers (many of whom we have visited) are embracing artisan traditions. Learn the basics of tasting and building your own cheese plate, and if you'd like, add a few of our favorite pairing options as well!
2 MAY 2021, 6PM - MICRO CLASS: JASPER HILL!

14 MAY 2021, 7PM - GOAT CHEESE AND ROSE'
If spring had a flavor, we think it would taste like a creamy goat cheese with a sip of refreshing rosé! From the herbal flavors of Provence, to crisp and mineral Loire, to light and lively bubbles of Basque country, we will tour the flavors of the world of rosé alongside some of the fresh chèvres and aged goat cheeses that we love to pair with them. Join us as we taste through some of our warm weather favorites!
22 MAY 2021, PM - A TAPEAR! SMALL BITES FROM SPAIN
With its creamy goat cheeses, nutty sheep cheeses, and pungent blues, it's easy to see and taste why Spain has long been one of our favorite sources of cheese inspiration. We’re also proud to offer a diverse array of Spanish charcuterie, from authentic chorizo to the coveted jamón ibérico de bellota, as well as tinned fish, chips, cookies, and a number of other delicious (and Formaggio-exclusive) treats from Spain. In this class, we’ll be crafting and tasting through a variety of classic Spanish tapas together. Join us for a flavor tour of this diverse and magnificent country!
