Saw this blurb in the Chronicle food section and it would make a great gift for my hard to shop for brother, but am wondering if any hounds have taken classes here & are they worth it? Should I just get the equivalent amount of $$ in a gift certificate to a good cheese shop instead?
"Students love the wine- and cheese-pairing classes at the Cheese School of San Francisco, but they sell out quickly, making a gift certificate a wise choice. Purchase them in increments of $65 (the standard class registration fee), to allow recipients to choose their time and class. The options range from Bang for Your Cheese & Wine Buck - good budget-friendly pairings in today's economy - or regional pairing classes. The Cheese School; (415) 346-7530. "
