August at The Joy of Cheese

Tribute and Choice: The Joy of Cheese August Events

In two August events, the Joy of Cheese will range the spectrum of emotions. One event is a tribute to a recently deceased colleague; the other will be programmed by requests made at the Joy of Cheese Facebook page. Both will be interesting.

August 2 at 7:30 at d.b.a Brooklyn: Summer cheeses and Beers

It’s simple; shortly before this event, I’m going to buy the eight best cheeses I can find; we’ll pair them with four superb beers (all four will be favorites of Ray Deter in tribute to our fallen pal) and we’re going to do a tasting. Join us, it’s fun. Tickets are $25; for tickets please visit

August 16 at 7:30 at Clerkenwell: By Request!

All Joy of Cheese events have a mystery cheese, but at this one the audience participation level will go way higher. I'm allowing people to choose the themes by posting what they'd like to investigate at The Joy of Cheese Facebook Page. Once I settle on the themes, it will be my task to make a logical sequence of the cheeses and an intelligent presentation. It should be fun. Tickets are $25 and available via Brown Paper Tickets,

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

The current Joy of Cheese schedule is always up at and my daily musings on cheese including Fromage of the Day is at
