Wine & Cheese Pairing Class

With Gersende Cazaux of Forward Foods. 

Gersende  Cazaux, a native of Toulouse, France, specializes in local foods. As a French woman, she has the love for cheese ingrained in her very being; she takes delight in having a bite of cheese followed by a sip of wine. After working for cheesemakers in France and Wales, she decided to expand her professional reach. In 2009 she relocated to Wisconsin, where she led a project to market unpasteurized cheeses from Wisconsin through the local-based-marketing concept called Taste of Place (the American version of Terroir). Since then, she has been helping American and French artisanal cheesemakers to export and promote their products across Europe and America. Today, she manages Forward Food Cheese Shop in Norman, OK and organizes events around cheese and wine. Gersende has a Master's Degree in Marketing Local Food and a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Studies.
