Prepare to Meet the Maker of fantastic, delicious cave aged cheeses! Crown Finish Caves is a collection of incredibly talented affineurs who manage the aging and maturation of nearly 28,000 lbs. of cheese! Tucked 30 feet below the streets of New York City, safe from the Ninja Turtles, a series of cool tunnels imbue young cheeses from around the world with delicious flavors that only cave aging can impart. During this two hour class, Caroline Hesse of Crown Finish Caves will be walking through several cheeses and pairings, offering a unique insight into the process of cave aging cheese and the art of being an affineur! 


Doors will open 10 minutes prior to the event start time.

Parking is available onsite & behind the cheese shop across
