“Blackbert” from R&G Cheesemakers
It has been a while since my last post. A LONG while if you want to get technical. A lot has happened in the past year. Moving and buying a house, becoming a father… Although I have been away, I have missed this blog, missed writing, and missed making cheese.
The plan is to end that trend starting now. I ran a guided beer and cheese tasting event a couple of weekends ago, and used that as a catalyst to kick-start my return.
A couple of weekends ago, I had the privilege of conducting a beer and cheese pairing workshop at Empire State Cellars. This occasion marked a fresh start back in the cheese world as my past year was a chaotic whirlwind of buying a house and becoming a father. Although I had certainly consumed plenty of cheese during my time off from NYCR and other cheese-related activities, this was my first opportunity in a while to lead a group of people through a guided cheese and beer tasting with New York cheeses and Port Jeff Brewing Company.
Expect future cheese reviews and stories. Expect future cheesemaking experimentation. Expect more content in this space, as well as at the NYCR.
