We will be focusing on 2 different cheese categories, firm cheese and washed rind cheese. We will learn about where these cheeses come from, how to describe cheese flavors, briefly discuss how to create great pairings. (wine, beer, etc.), differences in milk type (cow, sheep, goat) and the difference is between raw vs. pasteurized cheese. This class will be lead by Stephanie Nino our Cheesemonger at Le District.
Stephanie began her journey into the wondrous world of cheese at Le District. Working her way up she quickly became the head cheese & charcuterie monger. Under the wing of sommelier Jacob Daugherty and Chef Charcutier Nicolas Rafa, she took charge in expanding the cheese selection and was able to introduce the addition of the Le Bar Fromage & Charcuterie to the menu. She created a unique menu, that focuses on selecting the best cheeses from around the world and pairing them with the finest wines and charcuterie. She is a real Cheese lover!
