 A showdown between Old World and New. 

You will get to taste how the French have defined quality, and how Americans have expanded the horizons.  Renowned cheese maven Laure Dubouloz will showcase and explain French techniques and cheese history. Bedford Cheese Shop will select some of our favorite domestic innovators to represent the American challengers.  You be the judge:  who is the true King of artisan cheese? Perfectly paired  beverages from both France and America will cleanse your palate as you  ponder the nature of cheese production, coming away with a deeper understanding of what makes this whole cheese world so special, and of course a full belly.
