“Learn About Cheese In An Antonelli’s Class It doesn’t matter if you’re true cheese aficionado or a more casual cheese eater; an evening at one of Antonelli’s cheese classes is a must. Be prepared for an evening of all things cheese. You’ll hear cheese stories, learn some history, and of course sample tons of cheese. You can bring your own beverages for a small corking fee. ”
