November 2, 2017, Thursday - An Evening of Cheddar with Gordon Edgar at FOOD BUILDING

Time: 3:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: FOOD BUILDING, 1401 Marshall Street NE
Cheddar was the most popular cheese in the United States for 150 years, but how much do you really know about it? Can a cheese be both ubiquitous and under-appreciated? With Cheddar the answer is yes! We are fortunate indeed to have the acclaimed Gordon Zola Edgar – author of Cheddar: A Journey to the Heart of America’s Most Iconic Cheese -- to guide us through a tasting a variety of styles of cheddars to see which ones we love the best, to learn about how cheddar came to dominate North American cheesemaking, and maybe even to hear a bit (just a bit!) of cheese poetry from the 1800s. Class includes tastes of nine cheddars, a signed copy of Cheddar, and a fabulous swag bag!

We will be gathering at FOOD BUILDING, home to Red Table Meat Co. and Baker's Field Flour & Bread. You will be sampling these artisinal products as well as other gems from the specialty food world, such as Quince and Apple fruit preserves.

Seats are limited, so reserve your ticket today!
