About the event
Our Cheese Basics classes are a great way to get an intro to the wonderful world of cheese, but we know some are looking for a deeper dive. That's why we've partnered with an experienced affineur (cheese ageing pro) and sensory evaluator to give us all an opportunity to get even more nerdy about cheese!
In this tasting class, affineur Olivia Haver will introduce us to the science-y side of cheese. We will get even more in-depth than usual on topics like the cheesemaking process, microbes, aging cheese and so much more. In additon to being a talented cheese expert, Olivia is also a trained sensory evaluator, which is the scientific discipline of assessing flavors and sensory charactaristics. She is going to give us the 411 on how to taste and assess flavors like a real pro.
During class we will also taste through a plate of delicious cheeses, some made by Olivia herself! Curd nerds, you do NOT want to miss this one.
More About Olivia Haver, ACS CCSE:

Her passion for working with the most delicious cheeses in the world brought her to Vermont where she worked at Jasper Hill Farm for 6.5 years specializing in affinage quality, compositional data analysis, and sensory evaluation. She currently resides in Pennsylvania as Head Affineur and Quality Directory at The Farm at Doe Run maturing nationally and internationally award winning cheese.
