Cheese Night - Raw Milk Cheeses
Tuesday, April 1st
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Whole Foods Market Oakville, Free

You know when you take that first bite – the rich array of well-defined flavors and aromatics, the depth of complexity, the unmistakable sense of uniqueness – you have your hands on a raw-milk cheese. Raw-milk cheeses are made with milk that has not been pasteurized. It’s as simple as that. Think of the piquant tanginess of a raw milk blue, or the grassy, herbal depth of a raw sheep’s milk cheese.Taste and learn with  our expert Cheese monger Sandra.  Pre-registration required at mw.oak.marketing@wholefoods.com
