February Slow Food Evening: Preserving raw milk cheeses!

The focus of the Feb 9th Slow Food Evening is on raw milk cheeses. We will have as our special guest Ann Duckett, owner of the Little Blue Cheese Shop. Ann will be bringing a sampling of New York State cheeses for a tasting at the beginning of the evening. New York produces a rich variety of great cheeses, and you can find a great selection of them at the Little Blue Cheese Shop. We will also learn about a new Slow food initiative on Slow Cheese - an effort to preserve the traditional raw milk cheese traditions around the world against misguided growing government regulation. Why care about raw milk cheeses? As usual, we will enjoy a wonderful potluck meal as part of the evening and have a chance to meet new people and see how we can all help to reinvent our food system!
