Rachel is an American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional. She will talk about microbes, cheese rinds and hay for as long as you let her. Rachel will be presenting her famous "pairing bites" to the VIP attendees at the The Great Northeast Cheese & Dairy Fest on Saturday, December 10th; featuring delectables such as Ouleout Pot Pie (Vulto Creamery), Harbison Deviled Quail Eggs, Soondubu Style Soup with Kimchi & Cheese Curd and much more.
Rachel was part of the opening crew for Murray's Cheese Bar on Bleecker St. and developed their cheese & beverage program over the course of 4 years. Her proudest cheese/culinary accomplishment is the creation of Murray’s Cheese Bar Monger’s Table, a 10 course cheese tasting menu. Re-thinking the cheese course is the current focus of her newest project, “The Cheese Course”, which will be a collaborative initiative between Rachel, cheese makers, cheese professionals, chefs and like-minded and spirited industry folk.
Rachel also consults on restaurant, beverage menus and cheese programs. In her spare time she collects cook books, cider and cheese paraphernalia.
At The Great Northeast Cheese & Dairy Fest VIP's receive exclusive access to special earlier culinary demonstrations and discussions about cheeses and pairings from mixologists and sommeliers. VIP guests will also have early access to the rest of the festival. For event details and to purchase tickets please visit here.
