Join us at a market, a restaurant, a cheese class, a festival – we want you to taste Massachusetts Cheese!

Thursday, April 26: Cheese Chemistry for Cheese Professionals

Pat will present Cheese Chemistry 101 to an audience of cheesemongers, cheesemakers, chefs, and sales professionals in the cheese industry. This should be a fascinating deep dive into cheese science and an opportunity to discuss some of the intricacies of cheese with like-minded colleagues. The presentation will be held in Lowell’s beautiful Luna Theater. We’ll serve a sampling of local cheeses, wine, and beer and allow plenty of social time to taste and talk.
