|It’s a question we’ve all pondered upon biting into a perfectly sharp Parmigiano-Reggiano or spreading a fresh chèvre: How is the very existence of this magically varied product—cheese!—even possible? Famed NYC landmark Murray’s Cheese Shop wants to help you find the answers. This June, the shop’s director of education will lead an educational cheese expedition through Switzerland’s central region. Cross the Alps with with a small group of fellow turophiles to meet the cheese-makers—the families—behind a few of Murray’s favorite Swiss cheeses. Learn how the landscape shapes the region’s cheese-making tradition—and, ultimately, how culture contributes to the creation of the cheeses we love.|
