Wow, I can’t believe I will be getting on a plane for Des Moines in less than two weeks. I am really excited to go, not just for the American Cheese Society conference, but because I’ve never been to Des Moines and it seems like a fun town. I mean, look what they did to the YMCA Building for fun on a Saturday night:
I will be there early for judging, so I am actually doing a cheddar class at the awesome Cheese Shop of Des Moines on the Monday before the conference. It was close to sold out when I talked to CJ a couple of weeks ago, but if you are in town, you should come. Lots of cheddar! I will also be signing copies of my books at the conference on Friday from 11:30-Noon.
For you last minute folks, I am doing a talk at Pt Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company’s regular farm tour tomorrow (Friday July 15). Tickets with the book included are sold out, but there are still (cheaper) slots that give you all the other benefits and hopefully my talk will convince you to buy a copy or two. look at all you get for that! Cheese, beer, cows, Giacominis, and me!
