What you'll learn in this cheese tasting class:

Calling all cheeselovers! Whether you're an Epoisses expert or a Roquefort rookie, Cheese 101 is the place to be. We'll walk you through a tasting of seven families of cheese -- from fresh to bloomy to blue and everything in between -- so that you leave armed with the knowledge you need to approach even the most daunting of cheese counters and create a perfect cheese course of your own.

Every cheese has a story, and we'll explore each one, all while enjoying unlimited pours of our house sparkling and red wines to pair with your plate of our favorite cheeses at peak perfection.

Cheese 101 is recommended for ages 16 and up. Non-alcoholic beverages are available for those who are underage or just choose not to drink.

It's a nice way to have some wine and laughs but as far as learning about cheese I strongly suggest instead that you pick up a book and purchase some cheese. I know only marginally more if anything about cheese then before the class. Murray's itself has a very good selection of cheese for sale although if you're interested in Italian cheeses I recommend Eataly.
