American Charcuterie & Artisan Cheese: On the World’s Stage

Saturday 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm

Level: Intermediate
Presenter: Jeffrey Roberts

Americans are enjoying a renaissance of extraordinary fermented foods from bread to craft beer and from artisan cheese to pickled vegetables and charcuterie and salami. From local to regional and national markets, a sophisticated demand exists for quality value-added products. Jeffrey Roberts describes and explains the millennia-long history of fermented foods and, through a tasting, highlights the diversity of New York-made cured meats, artisan cheeses and craft beers. Since we eat with our eyes and often make assumptions about labels, the tasting will be conducted blind. Participants will learn about the history and culture of preserved products and contemporary producers, while enjoying a pairing of meat, cheese and beer.
