There’s a Cheese School in San Francisco? Yep! And it's America’s only independent cheese school, too, so if you're a dairy-loving, cheese whiz, or just want to put a new twist on girls' night out, or date night, you've come to the right place. The Cheese School of San Francisco was born in 2011 when Kiri Fischer, a publisher, decided to fold her magazine. Visions of an open field, sheep, and cheese making calmed her nerves, but it was education that she really fell for. Her school offers a slew of classes on anything from making mozzarella and burrata to sniffing out a good brie to to basic pairing with wine and beer. There are continuing education classes for cheese mongers and other professional, too. The school is also a popular spot for team building events and even weddings.
