New Tasting: Cheese 201!
TODAY - Charitable Cheese Cause: Equality Texas
Mon 6/29: Eat cheese and feel good about it! One day a month, we spotlight a local nonprofit doing great work in our community. We donate 5% of shop revenue (11-7), online revenue (all day), ticket sales for the tasting that evening, and after-class sales to the nonprofit. Plus, we shout their mission to the world. Thanks for helping us live our mission: #DoGoodEatGood. This month on Mon 6/29, we're supporting local nonprofit Equality Texas, which "works to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Texans through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration."
Announcing CHEESE 201 CLASSES!
Wed, July 1 (6pm) - Cheese 201: The Science of Cheese making with Food Scientist Pat Polowsky NEW series announcement! We're joining forces with food scientist Pat Polowsky to deep dive into various cheese topics for our Cheese 201 series. Pat is a food scientist by trade, specializing in cheese and dairy technology. He runs cheesescience.org in his free time, and he’s currently pursuing a PhD at Purdue University in the Agricultural Sciences Education and Communication Department.
For our kickoff of Cheese 201 THIS WEDNESDAY, we’ll be covering “The Science of Making Cheese.” Eating our way through 7 different types of cheeses, Pat will talk about the building blocks of cheese and milk composition, differences in lactic and rennet set cheeses, cooked/pressed and uncooked cheeses, and more. John will lead us through our tasting menu including French, Italian, Spanish, and Mexican-style cheeses. Don’t know what any of that means? Great! Join us! Already a pro? Awesome! Join us! Whether you consider yourself an expert or a novice, Pat is a great teacher and it’s guaranteed to be a tasty treat. Deadline to purchase tix is Tuesday midnight.
Closed July 4th!
Get your orders in now and plan ahead! Our team will be taking this Saturday 7/4 off for some much needed rest and relaxation.
