The most cultured ticket this weekend is the fifth annual California Artisan Cheese Festival, Sunday March 27 from 11am to 4pm. The dairy-tastic event brings together more than 70 artisan cheesemakers from the West Coast in a frenzy of eating, sniffing, and celebrating the renaissance of hand-crafted cheeses. And you’re invited.
Throughout the day, ticket holders are invited to nibble and sip their way through the region’s tastiest curds, suds and wines. On the menu are cheesemongers Cowgirl Creamery, Cypress Grove, Epicurean Connection, Marin French Cheese, Bohemian Creamery, Redwood Hill Farm, Laura Chenel’s Chevre and Bellwether Farms.
Food purveyors include Black Pig Meat, Healdsburg Cheese Shop, Della Fattoria, Jimtown Store, TerraSonoma, McClelland’s Dairy and Muganaini Wood Fired Oven Pizza. Serving up liquid nourishment: Black Kite Cellars, Dutton-Goldfield, Keller Estate, Lagunita, Sonoma Valley Portworks and the Petaluma Gap Grape and Wine Alliance, among others.
Area chefs will demo their cheese skills throughout the day, including what sounds like a particularly interesting performance by Meadowood Pastry Chef, Boris Portnoy — Fat+Temperature+Speed+Time, the science of cooking with dairy, featuring Straus Family Creamery.
