The Value of Selection

  • The Cheese Shop of Des Moines 833 42nd St Des Moines, Iowa (map)

Our Chief Educator, Rachel Juhl, will join the customers of Des Moines only cut-to-order cheese shop in a side-by-side blind tasting of Comte, Manchego, and Aged Gouda - one variety produced at a big box store next to Essex’s own selection. She will educate customers about the history of these cheeses, contributing factors to a cheese’s flavor and texture both inside and outside the vat, climaxing with students tasting each cheese and voting on which cheese was selected while the other simply “sold”. Do you think selection matters? Find out!

Your ticket gets you in the door with a plate of cheese, plenty of wine, and a vat-full of knowledge to take home! Call the store to make your reservation!
