Boulevard Cheese School: American Farmstead Cheese
Thursday, September 25th
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Cafe , Free

Join Ben, our Specialty Cheese Buyer and Certified Cheese Professional, for a night on American Farmstead Cheese. This cheese is unique because it's made on the same farm where the milk is produced, allowing for a fresher product. Additionally, by eliminating the transportation of the milk, agitation is prevented which can result in a rancid, less flavorful tasting cheese. The superior quality of this cheese is evident as American Farmstead Cheeses won quite a few awards at the ACS cheese competition. The lecture begins at 6 PM and is free of charge, but please register in advance by calling 216-464-9403. Ben will educate us on what makes American Farmstead chese special, introduce us to a few of his favorites, and of course, samples will be provided.
