The cheese fridge at Cookbook

There’s only one reason why I’m not a vegan – and that’s because of cheese. There’s nothing better than a hand crafted, melt-in-your-mouth Spanish Manchego, or Humboldt Fog or… well that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

It’s even better when you know your cheese – so Cookbook in Echo Park is hosting a few summer cheese classes for you to impress on your next cheese date. The classes are taught by Los Angeles chef, caterer and “cheesemonger” Amanda Brennan.

The class schedule is as follows:

Class 1, August 3rd, The Mystery of Cheese: including cheese basics such as types of cheese, types of milk, seasonality, how to purchase cheese and more.

Class 2, August 10th, Domestic Cheese: including how cheese in America came about, and the strides American farmers are making today to produce beautiful artisanal and farmstead cheeses.

Class 3, August 17th, Exploring France and Switzerland: including each region’s regulations, terroir, and types of animals.

Class 4, August 24th, Exploring Italy and Spain: again including each region’s regulations, terroir, and types of animals.

All cheese classes will run from 7-9pm on Wednesday evenings in August.

$30 for a single class; $100 for all four.

RSVP by emailing Cookbook at marta@cookbookla.com, and indicate which classes you are interested in taking.
