Join us for a cheesy soiree to raise money to honor Daphne Zepos, a friend of Di Bruno Bros. and a trailblazer in the global cheese community. We're hosting a cheese tasting party to celebrate our friendships with some of the world’s most acclaimed makers and more importantly, raise funds for the Daphne Zepos Teaching Award (DZTA). The DZTA is a scholarship that helps to grow squads of cheese professionals who teach about the history, culture and techniques in making, aging and selling cheese - a cause near and dear to our hearts! Tickets are $60 for one, or $100 if you buy a pair.
Come hungry. (And thirsty). Besides having the opportunity to chat one on one with our esteemed specialty food friends and colleagues, you'll be sampling multiple cheeses, charcuterie, and olive oils. The Di Bruno Bros. culinary team has designed a menu that intertwines and highlights our friends’ incredible items. Wash it all down with a complimentary selection of wines and beers from Vine Street Imports and Flying Fish.
