Cheese, Wine, and the Mediterranean Diet
The "cheese" word is rarely uttered when we hear about the Mediterranean Diet---yet the world's highest per-capita cheese consumption is by people who live around and within that iconic sea! Cheese and wine have been quotidian parts of their diets for millennia, and continue to be to this day. How is it that those living near the Mediterranean typically live long and healthy lives, while eating nearly twice the amount of cheese Americans do? Take this class with Maître Fromager and James Beard Award-winning author Max McCalman to learn about the role cheeses and wines play in those healthful diets. Throughout the class, you'll taste a range of cheeses and wines that represent the delicious and eye-opening evolution of Mediterranean styles.
