Cheese & Cider

25 North Street
Healdsburg, CA
1:o0 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Questions: 707-431-7433

Artisan cheese has a new love match: craft cider. Today’s trendy hard ciders have little in common with that sweet, fizzy beverage from the supermarket…and they are uniformly awesome with cheese. In this workshop, you’ll sample a range of traditional cider styles (French farmhouse, West Country, Basque and single-varietal), as interpreted by American producers. Then I'll introduce you to the California cheeses that these ciders love best. Special guest: Ellen Cavalli of Tilted Shed Cider.
