Meet the Maker: Beehive Cheese
April 7, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT$15 – $25
Meet the Maker: Beehive Cheese Co.
Join the CA Artisan Cheese Guild for our first virtual meet-up of the year! We will be meeting each month on zoom to share product and industry information, hear cheesemaker stories and partake in open Q&A between the maker and our attendees. The goal of this educational series is to create opportunities for cheesemongers and cheese enthusiasts to meet directly with different cheesemakers and strengthen the bonds within our cheese community.
How it works: Each session is 60 minutes hosted on Zoom. The first 30 minutes will be an opportunity for the cheesemaker to share their history and talk about their cheese and anything new happening at their creamery. Then, we will open it up to a Q&A style conversation for cheesemongers and cheese community members to ask the maker anything they want. From details about their cheesemaking process to questions about funny coloring or molds – anything goes. We want each attendee to leave with a new deeper understanding of the cheesemaker and their cheese.
We are thrilled to welcome Beehive Cheese for the month of April! Beehive cheese is based in Utah and famous for their rubbed-rind cheddars since 2005. Just this past year their Queen Bee Porcini won a World Cheese Awards Super Gold – the highest award given to a US producer that year. Over 4,000 cheeses from 45 countries entered the competition in Spain and only 17 US producers won awards with Beehive capturing 7 total awards.
