Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Laura Werlin is one of the country’s foremost authorities on cheese. She is the award-winning author of five books on the subject, is a sought-after speaker and spokesperson for consumer and trade organizations, and is a frequent television and radio guest. An expert in cheese and wine pairing and American artisan cheese, Werlin received the James Beard award for her book, The All American Cheese and Wine Book, which was the first of its kind in America to focus entirely on cheese and wine pairing. Her newest book, Mac & Cheese Please! brings her cheese-adoring audience the next-best thing to her fabulous grilled cheese recipes: 50 mac & cheese recipes to die for. Werlin is known for her approachable yet authoritative teaching style and is frequently asked to conduct cheese and wine pairing, cheese education, and cooking classes across the country. She is also a regular instructor at The Cheese School of San Francisco.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) at 11 am and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
