Virtual Event - Europe's Four Most Beloved Cheeses With Giorgio Cravero

Virtual Event - Europe's Four Most Beloved Cheeses With Giorgio Cravero

February 27, 2021: Tasting cheese behind the scenes at a Parmigiano Reggiano cave in Italy.

Essex Street Cheese is the New York/London-based cheese selection company that has supplied Zingerman’s with our favorite versions of Europe’s most famous cheeses. They only import a handful of cheeses and they work hand in glove with the cheesemakers whose wares they import. 
 
Rachel Juhl leads education and outreach for Essex Street Cheese. She’s spent her entire professional life visiting cheese makers, working with them, sharing their story with cheesemongers around the country and introducing all of us on what makes these cheeses and the people behind them so special. She’ll be joined by famed Parmigiano Reggiano affineur, Giorgio Cravero, from his cheese aging caves in the mountains of Bra, Italy, and together they’ll share how to taste and select cheese like a pro. 
 
Giorgio will start by giving us a behind-the-scenes tour of his Parmigiano Reggiano caves, and share us what makes his parm different from others. Afterward, Rachel will guide us through a tasting of four of Europe’s most famous and beloved cheeses: The Netherlands' gouda, France’s Comté, Spain’s Manchego and Italy’s Parmigiano Reggiano. 
 
Rachel will show us all how to entertain with cheese and how to share what we’ve learned without sounding like know-it-alls! Nibble, listen, learn, and laugh your way through a flight of Europe’s most famous cheeses!
 
All you'll need are two details: the address where we can ship the food, and the email address where we can keep the recipient informed about what's to come as the event grows near.
  
Logistics
