Cheese Class - Oh Yeah!

CHEESE! Eat It. Learn It. Love It!

After such a dreadfully dreary winter, isn’t it time we had some fun… some CHEESE-filled fun!?

Come partake in the first in a series of fun, food-filled evenings in Downtown Jersey City, with a Cheese Class and Tasting as the Main Event. The premiere event will take place on Monday, March 16th from 7-10pm at The Stockinette Café at 581 Jersey Ave.

The festivities begin at 7pm with Tea and a Light Dinner, featuring a delicious homemade Personal-Size Pot Pie and a big mug of your choice of freshly-made Harney & Sons Teas.
Tea is a natural astringent that cleanses the palate for CHEESE, of course!

Then, Cheese Class is in session! Sample FIVE different artisan-made cheeses, while Cheese Snob Wendy teaches you more about cheese than any human being should know.

After the class, Cheese Snob Wendy will entertain your questions while The Stockinette’s Cash Tea & Pastry Bar serves up homemade goodies until 10pm, at which time they bolt the doors and kick us all out.


Admission is $50 per person, and that includes dinner and the cheese class & tasting.

Space is very limited and there will be no tickets available at the door; reservations are required! Go here

to reserve your seat now. Don’t miss out!

Please specify your Pot Pie choice: Beef Stew Pot Pie or Vegetarian Black Bean Pot Pie, when you register.

Bring your appetite and your curiosity. Cheese Snob Wendy will satisfy both!


Your host, Cheese Snob Wendy (aka Wendy M. Levy), has been working with cheese since September 1995.

For over 13 years, she’s been a cheesemonger at some of New York City and Vermont’s finest cheese establishments, as well as being an advisor-to-the-trade for cheese shops up and down the Eastern Seaboard.

Wendy has taught Cheese Classes at Zabar’s (NYC), Marlboro College (VT) and The Main Street Museum (VT). Now she’s aiming to single-handedly turn Downtown Jersey City into Downtown Cheese Town. For more information, please visit


The Fine Print:

• This event is designed as a complete evening; we’re sorry, but it is not possible to offer any part of it á la carte.

• You don’t need to bring any additional cash with you to the event unless you want to have an additional cup of tea or a pastry. Your first cup of tea, your dinner and the class and cheese tasting are all included in the price of admission!

• There will be no alcohol served, and all attendees must be age 18 or older. Please leave the kiddies home.

• There will be no refunds. If a registrant is unable to attend, a credit will be given for a future Cheese Class Event.
