Did you know there are 50 licensed cheesemakers in our state? Join us for this exploration of the Washington cheese scene as we kick off the first-annual Washington Cheese Month. This class will entail tasting five different Washington cheeses paired with three local accompaniments and two beverages. During this session, you’ll learn about American and Washington cheesemaking history, understand how to taste and pair local cheeses like a pro, and you’ll discover what makes our local cheeses so special.
The course will be led by Dr. Courtney Johnson, one half of the professional cheesemonger duo behind Burien-based mobile cheese shop, Street Cheese. Courtney is an American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional and Certified Cheese Sensory Evaluator. She is also the Executive Director of the Washington State Cheesemakers Association and a Chef Instructor at Seattle Central College’s Seattle Culinary Academy.
