Rave Reviews....

 "I was never one to even think about cheese, yet after last night's tasting and great information I am now giving up the store bought cheese!  What a difference." - Joanne

 "What an extremely enjoyable night. Vanessa engaged everyone around the table.  The way the cheese was presented one at a time with your talk about it and your knowledge was good for all.  I will definitely be back with more friends!' - Lynda
