The Cheese School of San Francisco is the only independent institution of its kind in the nation. We are devoted to helping you maximize your enjoyment and appreciation of cheese. Our philosophy is “eating is learning” and we treat our students to a cornucopia of education and tasting events, both structured and informal.

Founded in 2006, The Cheese School of San Francisco and its roster of expert instructors are also available for corporate events and private parties. Our chef designs custom menus around the finest hand-crafted cheeses and exceptional local meat and produce. Events can be held either at the Cheese School’s classroom facility in San Francisco’s Mission District or off-site.

Classes and events are designed to be fun, informative and most of all, delicious.
