Join us at Babi`s Tasting Room where Andrew Steiner, aka the Cheese Whiz, and owner of Andrew`s Cheese Shop in Santa Monica, Calif., will discuss his love of all things cheese from around the world.
Andrew carefully selects each and every cheese he carries in his shop. Has traveled the world extensively on cheese missions. He teaches Cheese 101 classes. Holds regular Grilled Cheese parties in his store. Describes in detail the make, origin, flavor and texture of each cheese he carries. And with his characteristic charismatic flair, he will always select the perfect cheese pairing for your needs.
Though a cheese snob he is not. His motto for his shop is, "This Place Stinks!" In every positive way possible.
We will discuss types of cheese. Countries of origin. Milk selection. Pairing. Factory made versus traditional made. Eating. Tasting.
