The more you know, the better cheese tastes.
Eat Well and Impress your Friends!
Cheese lovers are passionate. They love the aventure of finding a new cheese, hearing a new story about that cheese. They enjoy sharing with their friends and love to impress, not for status but for pleasure. They are quality of life people.
But good cheese can be expensive. When not in great shape, even more expensive. How do you know the best place to buy cheese where you live?, How about the best piece among the hundreds sold?
Buying mediocre (or worse) cheese fills me with righteous indignation. Like you, I am passionate about cheese.
Not everyone has a cheese "boutique" with well trained passionat cheesemongers nearby. (Though it is getting better) Many of us buy our cheese in supermarkets, and take risks. We are often dissappointed, that is, until we learn what I share in this course.
So many types of cheese, and so many different cheeses, changing all the time, IS overwhelming. Clerks that do not share the same passion as you is frustrating. Abused cheese, even in gourmet stores, is such a waste. And misinformation about cheese online abounds. (One of the reasons we are so loyal to the cheese experts that helped us, is they are few and far between.)
So, how do you find delicious cheese among the thousands. How do you find that something special you have not yet tasted? How do you guess how a cheese will taste before trying it, or if you will like it? Especially when they are not sharing samples? What do you do if the only thing you have to go on is a sign on a supermarket wall of cheese?
Then, when you finally find that special bit of cheese, how do you keep it creamy, unctuous, nutty and delicious when you get it home? (Especially when much of the information out there on how to store cheese is wrong.)
Finding great cheese, without a good cheesemonger nearby, can be frustrating and expensive. But it can be completely unnecessary, if you know where and what to look for, either in a store, a clerk or on a wall of cheese.
In 1992, I was an accomplished Ritz-trained Chef. I thought I knew a lot about cheese. I knew the difference between a Brie and a Camembert, and how to cook with Port Salut, after all. The American Cheese Society had its annual conference in San Francisco that year. Entering into their Festival of Cheese for the first time, was overwhelming. I felt humbled. I realized I knew so little.
So many shapes, colors and textures. So many different types of cheese!
At the time I was the Corporate Chef and Deli Director at Andronico's Markets in Berkeley, CA, in its glory days. I wanted to find the best cheese, and avoid buying the worst, for my customers. As, we were not shy about our pricing, selling cheese too young, or when it was over the hill was a crime. We guaranteed flavor!
Our customers asked great questions, out of the blue. They asked about fat in cheese –was it safe to eat? What makes cheese Cheese? How to cook with it? What the heck is "Terroir." Why are there so many different shapes? Where does flavor come from? What kinds of milk? Tons of great questions.
So I set about to find answers, and I did, with the guidance of so many great cheesemakers, cheese technologists, professors, cheesemongers and more. I want the chance to do the same for you. My curiousity led to a 30 year love affair with cheese.
Join my course and I will guide you down the path to become a Cheese Expert sharing everything I have learned that is not available elsewhere so you too can become THAT person who at a party or a tasting has the knowledge to impress. THAT person who can find a fabulous cheese even in the most conventional of supermarkets. THAT person whose cheese is always in such good shape when they serve it at home: a Cheese Expert
