Here at PCS we offer classes on how to serve, pair and enjoy cheese, virtually or in-person at our South Philadelphia classroom! Our BYOB classes are a haven for cheese lovers and a welcoming environment for all curious eaters to explore their own palate, ask questions, and taste some seriously delicious cheeses and treats.
Cheesed to meet you!
My name is Julia Birnbaum, and cheese is my life! After working for many years in the specialty foods industry, I started Philly Cheese School because I love sharing the magic of cheese with others. For me, cheese is a way to connect with people, tell delicious stories and so much more. I hope you'll come along on my cheesy journey!
My Philly Cheese School birthday party with Julia was the best! I learned SO MUCH from Cheese Basics, and Julia is hilarious and so knowledgable. This class changed the way I eat cheese and now I'm hooked and gifting Julia's class to all of my friends.
Julia came over to our backyard to host a lovely informative and entertaining full sensory experience for my family and friends. She guided us through her thoughtfully prepared tasting selections, suggesting pairings and encouraging us to experiment. Philly Cheese School is one of my favorite local queer-owned small businesses, and I love recommending it to my community and internet strangers alike!
