With the holidays around the corner, the New York Times has already put out their 2016 Holiday Gift Guides. For a perfect experiences to give as a gift, the Times listed Murray’s Cheese 101 class as an ideal gift to give to your loved ones this year. Take a look!
So, What’s The Deal With Cheese 101?
Over the last few weeks, you might have noticed that we have been sharing a series of videos called “Cheese 101.” Earlier this year, we were trying to come up with new ways to share some basic cheese knowledge. If you look at the Murray’s mission statement, it ends with the phrase “… to continue to educate ourselves and customers on the pleasures of cheese.”
We take our mission seriously. We’re here to put specialty cheese at the forefront of food conversations in America. While there is a bevy of cheese information out there, we wanted to make it quick, easy, and most importantly, fun to demystify cheese which led us to the “Cheese 101” video series.
Our first four videos covers the basics. From choosing the perfect wedge, the appropriate portioning size, and pairing with the perfect beverage, the videos help guide you through all the facets of buying cheese. Our first two videos are out, but look for “Cheese and Drink Pairings” on 11/19 and “Entertaining with Cheese” on 11/26.
Being a real curd nerd takes time and dedication, we hope that this series provides a a brief introduction that you will need to dive into the land of curds and whey.
