Attended: American Craft Beer and Cheese

Very fun and knowledgable staff! Had a great time.

Attended: Cheese 101

I took my dad to this class as his birthday present. We both had a great time, learned a lot about cheese, and greatly enjoyed both the cheeses and wine. Jordan was amazing. She was entertaining, excited about cheese, and very knowledgeable. She made us feel comfortable participating and asking questions.

Fantastic energetic and enthusiastic teacher who was very knowledgable about cheese!

Attended: Bee Cool: Bee Raw Honey and Cheese

Well organized and beautifully presented! I learned about the way cheeses are made, and how to identify different types. There are as many different types of honeys as there are flowers and beekeepers willing to try them! When you pair different cheeses with different honeys, you can get an explosion of flavor that you would not expect! The class was fun and delicious! I would heartily recommend it to everyone!

Attended: Cheese 101

Amazing class! A great introduction to understanding about cheese. Sean was great, insightful, knowledgeable, and all for questions and further explanations. Plus, the cheeses were absolutely delicious! Definitely coming back for another class soon.
