The California Artisan Cheese Guild invites you to a one-of-a-kind class on the microscopic world of cheese rinds. Join renowned mycologist and food microbiologist Ben Wolfe from Harvard University to learn what colors mean, why things get fuzzy, what you should be wary of and how to nurture healthy rind communities. This class brings together cheesemakers, mongers and devoted connoisseurs for hands-on exploration. Peer into the microscope and meet the mites. Cozy up to fascinating fungal bodies. Then taste your way through yeast types. You'll be on the edge of your seat and the tip of the cheese rind frontier!
