Join us for a cheesy soiree to raise money to honor Daphne Zepos, a trailblazer in the global cheese community. We're hosting a cheese tasting party to raise money for the DZTA, which is a scholarship created in her memory. The DZTA 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 $40 for one, or $75 if you buy a pair.
Come hungry. (And thirsty.) Besides having the opportunity to chat all things cheese with the most acclaimed makers around, you'll be sampling multiple cheeses and specially made hors d'oeuvres that will feature those cheeses as well. Wash it all down with a complimentary selection of wines and beers from Vine Street Imports and Dock Street Brewing.
