Fromage Americain: The Joy of Cheese JuneEvents
It's old news that American hand crafted cheeses can stand alongside any in the world, but are there really two dozen of them that could be sold in any French Fromagerie without condescension or caveat. I think there are, and I'm going to present my choices during three Joy of Cheese events in June.
June 7 at d.b.a Brooklyn, 113 N. 7th St. Fromage Americain
Please join us Tuesday April 5 at 7:30 for a tasting of seven exceptional American cheeses with a slight emphasis on firm cheeses and seven beers chosen specifically to match them. I'll present the cheese; Ray Deter will present the beers. We'll both talk about why we think the combination works. Tickets are $25.

June 14th at Clerkenwell, 49 Clinton St. Fromage Americain Part Deux
Same deal, nine superb American cheeses, this time with a slight emphasis on softer cheeses. I'll present the cheese and attendees can buy the beverages of their choice separate. Tickets are $25; for more information visit https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/178626.
June 22nd at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St. Fromage Americain Part Trois
La meme chose, nine superb American cheeses, this time with a slight emphasis on newer cheeses. I'll present the cheese and attendees can buy the beverages of their choice separate. Tickets are $25; for more information visit https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/17863
By all means attendees are welcome to attend these events without advance purchase, I just that they e-mail me to alert me of their intentions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And in addition these?
