Cheese Writing Class for Kids: Saturday, January 21, 4-5pm, $35 per child
Location: The Queensboro (80-02 Northern Blvd, Queens, NY 11372)

Children aged 8-13 are invited to an hour of cheese education with Stand Alone cheesemonger Katie Machen.

In this hourlong class, kids will try three different cheeses from around the world and think about what they look, smell, and taste like. With writing prompts, they'll think about their favorite foods, least favorite foods, and food memories. Together we will come up with the vocabulary to describe the cheeses we try and the other foods we discuss. So much of knowing how to order cheeses you like is having an idea of what it is you like! 
 
About Katie: Katie Machen (she/her) holds an MFA in creative writing and literary translation from Queens College, CUNY and has been teaching writing for ten years. You may have seen her selling cheese at Stand Alone Cheese, where she's always excited to taste something new and help kids and adults alike find the perfect cheese for them! She lives in Jackson Heights.
