Class: Champion Cheese! with Cheesemonger Gordon Edgar @The Village

Champion Cheeses! Join visiting cheese judge and longtime cheesemonger Gordon Edgar to sample some award-winning cheeses.

Join visiting cheese judge and longtime cheesemonger Gordon Edgar to sample some award-winning cheeses, learn what makes them so unique and find out what goes into the process of determining what makes a championship cheese. This will be a lively and fun evening of cheese stories and cheese tasting. And not only will we be sampling some of the great cheeses the Co-op has to offer, but the Boise Co-op Wine Gurus will have selected wine pairings to wash it all down.

Gordon Edgar loves cheese and cooperatives, and has been combining both of these infatuations as a cheesemonger at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative in San Francisco since 1994. Edgar has been a judge at national cheese competitions, a board member for the California Artisan Cheese Guild, and written two books: Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge (2010) and Cheddar: A Journey to the Heart of America’s Most Iconic Cheese (2015). Edgar is in Boise to judge cheese for the 2019 American Dairy Goat Association competition.
