Beyond the slices of American cheese, is a world of cheese that has yet to be discovered by some palates. On January 20 at Artisanal Foods, enjoy a selection of nine cheeses and watch how fresh mozzarella is made by hand before sampling a warm, gooey bite. Taste at your own pace and learn the story of each cheese and pairing. The family-friendly tasting takes just under an hour and starts at noon, 2pm and 4pm. Included in the $20 admission is a $5 credit towards an in-store purchase after the class. And, if your group is of legal age, BYOB is welcome.
