Alpine Cheese Tasting Event
February 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us on February 24 for a virtual cheese tasting of Alpine cheeses from Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Sweden. We welcome Doug Jacknick from Columbia Cheese to guide us through this tasting of world-class cheeses. Doug has been working in the food industry for almost two decades. He has a degree in Culinary Arts, has worked in fine restaurants, specialty stores, cheese shops and for Connecticut dairy, Arethusa Farm. His love for cheese has grown over the years and he is excited to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for Alpine cheeses. He will take us through this tasting and teach us about the history of cheese making in this part of the world, what makes Alpine cheeses so special, and educate us on this wonderful selection of world-class cheeses.
