Who doesn’t love a pairing seminar led by experts in their fields? The answer is: many more than fit in the room. At the American Culinary Federation Conference last week, Craig Gile, Cabot’s Master Cheese Grader, and Jennifer Pereira, Associate Professor of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University, treated students, chefs and instructors to some great Vermont cheeses and delicious beers.
