The Cheese School of San Francisco has some great class offerings this spring, but seats are going fast, so get in or miss out!
In response to popular demand, we've added more cheesemaking classes to the schedule. Look for our basic class, as well as mozzarella and ricotta making and our first ever Camembert class! We've also added more introductory courses for those of you who have only recently formed a cheese habit. For our longtime students of fromage, we have some amazing pairing and master classes: Honey & Cheese with Red Bee beekeeper Marina Marchese, Exploring the Biology of Cheese with Harvard scientist Rachel Dutton, and Springtime Cheese, International Flavors with James Beard award-winning author Niloufer Ichaporia King.
Apparently pepper jack is outstripping its cheesy friends in terms of popularity on fast food sandwiches. There's a lot to love about this spicy little cheese:
Watch out, American™ Cheez™—there is a new flavor of cheese "in town" that people are eating a lot of!

It's not just hungry Americans shoving entire bricks of pepper jack into their drooling maws during their voracious Ambien-fueled sleepwalks—it's on Chik'n™ sandwiches too!

Aged Gouda, a creamy Goat Cheese, a pungent Cabrales blue cheese, and so much more. Just roll out a cheese cart and let me choose a few cheeses from all the diversity that is offered.

Sweet desserts can be rich and heavy, and you might not want to end your meal in that manner. There is a line between being satisfied and feeling bloated, and dessert can be the tipping point that pushes one into the latter category. Cheese though seems to be a lighter choice, helping to keep you more on the side of satisfied.
