August at The Joy of Cheese

Tribute and Choice: The Joy of Cheese August Events

In two August events, the Joy of Cheese will range the spectrum of emotions. One event is a tribute to a recently deceased colleague; the other will be programmed by requests made at the Joy of Cheese Facebook page. Both will be interesting.

August 2 at 7:30 at d.b.a Brooklyn: Summer cheeses and Beers

It’s simple; shortly before this event, I’m going to buy the eight best cheeses I can find; we’ll pair them with four superb beers (all four will be favorites of Ray Deter in tribute to our fallen pal) and we’re going to do a tasting. Join us, it’s fun. Tickets are $25; for tickets please visit

August 16 at 7:30 at Clerkenwell: By Request!

All Joy of Cheese events have a mystery cheese, but at this one the audience participation level will go way higher. I’m allowing people to choose the themes by posting what they’d like to investigate at The Joy of Cheese Facebook Page. Once I settle on the themes, it will be my task to make a logical sequence of the cheeses and an intelligent presentation. It should be fun. Tickets are $25 and available via Brown Paper Tickets,

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

The current Joy of Cheese schedule is always up at and my daily musings on cheese including Fromage of the Day is at

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 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 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.

    I and my pals were found to be looking through the good pointers located on the website and so suddenly came up with a terrible suspicion I had not thanked the blog owner for those strategies. Those men are already passionate to see all of them and already have without a doubt been making the most of these things. We appreciate you actually being well thoughtful as well as for settling on this kind of nice things millions of individuals are really desperate to know about. Our honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you earlier.
