Women in Cheese at the Astor Center Jan. 6

Ladies, are you hankering to become a cheesemonger?  Or maybe a cheesemistress?

Then come down to the Astor Center to hear about the world of cheese retailing from a group of New York’s best women cheese mavens.

Here are the details from Slow Food about the event at the Astor Center in the East Village:

Join Slow Food NYC Jan 6th for an evening filled with local women in cheese. On hand will be local cheese purveyor Anne Saxelby, of Saxelby Cheesemongers, leading a discussion with Karen Weinberg of Three Corner Field Farm, Betsy Devine and Rachel Mark of Salvatore Bklyn, Angela Miller of Consider Bardwell Farm, and Lisa Schwartz of Rainbeau Ridge.

Hear the story behind the cheese and how this diverse group of women got into the business. They will discuss the cheese making process from the pastures to the shelves and what makes each of their cheeses so wonderful and unique. And of course each participant will also bring plenty of cheese to try, paired with local New York State cider.

Proceeds from this event will help support the activities and programs of Slow Food NYC.
