MetFridays—Cheese Talk and Tasting

Free, but registration is required

Celebrate the first evening of extended Summer Friday hours at The Met Cloisters with a short talk on the history of cheese.

Monks invented the process of washing bloomy-rind cheeses (like Brie and Camembert) in a beer/cider solution to create washed-rind cheeses (Epoisses, Taleggio, or Reblochon) with stronger, more complex flavors. Taste both bloomy-rind and washed-rind samples and watch a demonstration of cheese washing with cheese experts from Murray's Cheese.

Four 20-minute talk and tasting presentations are available at 5:30 PM, 6:00 PM, 6:30 PM, and 7:00 PM.

Availability is limited.
