Learn how to select cheeses for a cheese board and make pairing suggestions with Alex Jones from Collective Creamery. She will walk you through an all local cheese tasting (yum) and discuss the best practices for evaluating, tasting, storing and serving cheese. We will cover the issues surrounding grass-fed dairy, and talk about the importance of supporting local cheese makers.
