Meet the Cheesemaker TODAY! Plus cheese throwdowns & the ‘State of Cheese’ in New Hampshire

It’s Monday. It’s cold. What’s a cheese lover to do? How about playing hooky this afternoon to come by Saxelby Cheesemongers for a special ‘Meet the Cheesemaker’ tasting with Michael Lee of Twig Farm? If you’ve ever swooned for Twig Wheel, drooled at the sight of Goat Tomme, or written odes to Square Cheese (and I’m hoping that’s not just me…) Here’s your chance to meet the man behind the mold! We won’t tell your boss. And if he does find out somehow, here are some sample excuses:

1. It’s an educational experience… or This was R & D for (insert project name here)
2. My calcium and protein levels were too low for me to work effectively…
3. I was hypnotized by the email…when I came to, I was at the cheese shop…
4. I’m still confused about the time change… I left the office when?
