Cheese & Wine of Italy
Tue, Jun 6

  • We all know Italy produces wonderful cheeses. But why is the variety so perplexingly wide? Why is mozzarella di bufala tart and a fior di latte mozzarella sweet? What accounts for the tenderness of a Pecorino Toscano and the brute forcefulness of a sheep's milk cheese from Sardinia? To fully understand the range of style and flavor of Italian cheese, one must understand the regional characteristics and culture. This class will provide a tasting tour of all the major cheese-producing regions of Italy. Led by Andy Lax of Fresca Italia, an importer and distributor that specializes in Italian cheeses, you'll taste the best and learn from a true expert. The cheeses will be paired with traditional wines and accompaniments that bring out the very best flavors of Italian cheese. Buon Gusto!
