The Science of Cheese: A Tasting

Stichetlton Microbes, by Rachel Dutton
If you've ever wondered about the microscopic life of cheese, come to "The Artisanal Microbe," a cheese talk and tasting hosted by the Franklin Institute at Di Bruno Bros. (1730 Chestnut St.) next Wednesday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m.

I'll be there, along with scientist-turned-cheesemaker Al Renzi of Yellow Springs Farm. Al and his wife Catherine make award-winning goat cheese in Chester County, including Nutcracker and Red Leaf.

"The Artisanal Microbe" is a free event, but you'll need to grab a ticket. The Philadelphia Science Festival runs through April 28.


  1. This looks *fascinating*. Wish I lived closer so I could join in the fun!

  2. How much doesn't cost? None of the links seem to say until after one is willing to create an account with TicketLeap.

    Sounds like fun... possibly fun enough to request vacation time from work to go.

  3. It's a free event, but seats are limited to 50, hence the tickets.

  4. Also, if anyone has trouble with the link above, try this one:
