Alpine Style Cheeses: The Taste of Terroir


June 21 - Alpine Style Cheeses: The Taste of Terroir
6:45 p.m. Metcalfe’s West Cafe. 7455 Mineral Point Rd, Madison, WI

Why do cheeses made in the mountains of France and Switzerland taste different than cheeses made elsewhere? Is it the alpage grasses, the techniques of making cheese, or hundreds of years of experience? We’ll taste two European Alpine cheeses and two Wisconsin Alpine-style cheeses and compare to see if cheesemakers in America’s Dairyland can match the terroir – or taste of place – of the Alps. Limited to 20 attendees, includes blended drink, coffee or beverage of your choice from Metcalfe’s West Cafe. Arrive at 6:45 pm to order your drink and get settled in for a 7 pm start.
