The Joy of Cheese Presents Cheses of Old England v. cheeses of new England
Although the American culinary tradition draws from many different lands, our cheese traditions have the indelible stamp of the English. The Brits invented cheddar yet Americans make and eat more of it than anyone in the world. Other notable American cheeses like Colby have some roots in British cheeses like Wensleydale and Cheshire.
However, just as America is rapidly evolving into a nation with a new and incredibly diverse array of cheeses at the forefront of our dairy culture, England is also developing a fascinating new national cheese character. The relationship has changed. There is now a clear dialogue between new American and new English cheeses. So in examining both classic and contemporary English cheese, I hope attendees will see some parallels in American cheesemaking.
Whew! That was a mouthful!
Please join us Tuesday September 9 and 16 and Thursday the 18th at 10 Degrees, 121 St. Mark's Place in the East Village for a tasting of classic and contemporary English cheese.
