On Friday May 2nd, from 6-8:30pm, Beecher's Handmade Cheese in Seattle will parter with Pike Place Market's Tasting Room to present a Cheese 101 course to benefit Brad and Meg Gregory of Washington's Black Sheep Creamery. As you may recall, Black Sheep Creamery suffered extensive damage - including the loss of most of their sheep - during the floods of December 2007. Since then, they've been working very hard to clean up and pull themselves, in Meg's words "onward and upward, out of the muck!" The recovery effort is ongoing and you can help by attending this course; 100% of the proceeds will go to the Gregorys.
Join Kurt Dammeier, Beecher's front man, for this fun and informative event where you'll learn all about cheese types and styles, the history of artisan cheese and experience a virtual tour of the cheesemaking process. Participants will also learn the ins and outs of pairing cheese and wine.
Cost is $50. To register online or for more information click here.
