6. Take a cooking class with Chad. Super fun date night, am I right?
Dear cheese, I love you.
During a recent lunch stop at the Whole Foods salad bar, I saw a sign advertising a cheese class. Nay, a FREE cheese class. I haven’t found a cooking class yet that has worked with our schedules, so I decided that a free class about cheese (plus wine pairings, they said!) was pretty perfect. We invited our friends from the I Thee Wine blog to join us for our little date night.
Our class was about sheep’s milk cheese, and since not many people showed up for the class, we got to sample two pieces of each – maybe 8 or 10 different kinds. It was a lot of cheese. And not enough wine. Whole Foods, take note. Definitely not enough wine. Our teacher did a great job and knew a lot about each of the cheeses. I may have a new dream job, you guys.
My friend Andrea introduced me to Manchego several years ago, and it’s one of my faves to this day, but I had no idea that it was a sheep cheese! So good, Manchego.
There are a few different cooking classes offered in Omaha that still look interesting, including one on smoking meats that Chad would love, but on behalf of my love for cheese, I’m calling this goal accomplished. Say cheese!
