With her expertise, you'll gain a newfound appreciation for the natural world and its incredible power to complement the finest of cheeses.

Prepare to be delighted as Julia and Kelly team up to create a welcoming atmosphere, filled with laughter and cheesy camaraderie. You'll be encouraged to ask questions and share your thoughts as we taste through the plate together as a group.
