This event is presented in partnership with the John & Bonnie Boyd Hospitality & Culinary Library and is free with museum admission. Those who purchase a copy of The Book of Cheese in the SoFAB Pantry will receive 1 complimentary admission per book. The program begins at 1 PM in the Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air, samples are first come first serve.
