Cheese tasting in Pittsburgh?

artichokeheart Nov 18, 2007 08:04 AM

Looking to send my parents to a cheese tasting class/event in Pittsburgh as a holiday gift. So far my online searches have not yielded any locations. Does anyone know of a cooking school or restaurant in the Pittsburgh area that might hold cheese tasting classes?

    I assume Wholefoods offers classes but I would check with Penn Mac too...

        Whole Foods has a cheese tasting (at least) once a week.

          You might check out the schedule at Crate in Scott (Greentree Rd.). Carol (Dear Heart) from Penn Mac teams with a wine expert for some wine/cheese pairing classes on occasion. They're doing something up at Crate in February. I don't have the details, but you can call the store or find it online.

            Thanks again for all your suggestions. Forgot to mention that we're trying to coordinate this from out of town, so this is all very helpful.
