Question from Svetlana T.
Is the class safe for those pregnant?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Svetlana! It is not unsafe for pregnant women but they would need to let Murray's Cheese know ahead of time. If someone pregnant signs up, you can send us an email before the class date so that Murray's Cheese can set their seat accordingly. This would mean they would leave your seat alcohol free, and also make sure that all of the cheese on your plate are pasteurized. Hope this helps!
Question from Blanca
Hello, do you have the option of a guide in Spanish?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Blanca! I'm sorry, the school doesn't have option for Spanish.

Cheese 101
Reviewed by Laura C. on 1/1/2020
Relaxed, informal atmosphere with friendly staff that feels like a class / cocktail party without the mingling. A little difficult to hear from the back section of the room a mic would solve for this. Wish we learned more of a method to identify cheese attributes like crystallization than the cheeses themselves.

Instructor was great and informational, learned a lot about different cheeses and learned a lot about cheeses I liked/don’t like. Great experience, even went downstairs afterward and took a couple of the cheeses we tried home. Drinks and snacks were great as well. Keep up the good work!

The teacher of the class, Chiara, was friendly and very informative. She encouraged us to ask questions and didnt cut her answers short. Also, there was unlimited white and red wine to go with the seven delicious cheese samples and great snacks too! I highly recommend this class and plan to attend the other classes they offer! A very enjoyable experience!
