All the activity is good news for us cheese lovers, but it’s hard to keep up. Sonoma cheesemaker and resident Sheana Davis has her ear to the pasture and will present the cheeses from the region’s freshest cheesemakers. You’ll also try some of the produce and other goodies that are making their spring debut.

A little dab will do ya. Fromage blanc, creme fraiche and feta are the cheeses that make everything from salads to tacos sing. In this hands-on class, cheesemaker Sacha Laurin will teach you how to make the cheeses that will become staples in your fridge for meals to come. You’ll try your creations in class and bring some home to share, or not.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
