Fromage Americain: The Joy of Cheese June Events

Fromage Americain: The Joy of Cheese June Events

It’s old news that American hand crafted cheeses can stand alongside any in the world, but are there really two dozen of them that could be sold in any French Fromagerie without condescension or caveat. I think there are, and I’m going to present my choices during three Joy of Cheese events in June.

June 7 at d.b.a Brooklyn, 113 N. 7th St. Fromage Americain

Please join us Tuesday June 7 at 7:30 for a tasting of seven exceptional American cheeses with a slight emphasis on firm cheeses and seven beers chosen specifically to match them. I’ll present the cheese; Ray Deter will present the beers. We’ll both talk about why we think the combination works. Tickets are $25.

June 14th at Clerkenwell, 49 Clinton St. Fromage Americain Part Deux

Same deal, nine superb American cheeses, this time with a slight emphasis on softer cheeses. I’ll present the cheese and attendees can buy the beverages of their choice separate. Tickets are $25; for more information visit https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/178626.

June 22nd at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St. Fromage Americain Part Trois

La meme chose, nine superb American cheeses, this time with a slight emphasis on newer cheeses. I’ll present the cheese and attendees can buy the beverages of their choice separate. Tickets are $25; for more information visit https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/178631

By all means attendees are welcome to attend these events without advance purchase, I just that they e-mail me to alert me of their intentions at thejoyofcheese@gmail.com.

And in addition these?

June 23 Cheese and Beer at the 92Y and June 29th Cheese and Wine at the 92nd St. Y.

In July, our theme will involve French cheeses; I don’t know how yet.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
