There is an old European proverb that reads "After cheese comes nothing".
Cryptic? Yes. Ridiculouss? Maybe not. In Cheese for Dessert, we will examine the digestive benefits to finishing a meal with cheese (or at least including a cheese course) and find some of the biological findings supporting them.
The American dining palate has come to demand a sweet ending to an evening meal. This habit has contributed to significant health issues. We will be offering some alternatives that might satisfy both the sweet tooth and the demanding stomach.

Allin Tallmadge first fell in love with cheese on a trip to Italy 2001 to sample the super Tuscans that were exciting the wine world. Each picturesque hilltop town from Florence to Siena had its own wine, its own salumi…and its own cheeses. So began Allin's amateur journey into the world of cheese that lead to working behind a cheese counter in 2006 and opening his own specialty food store in 2009. Allin now leads classes and events to educate the public about the benefits and pleasures of making cheese a daily part of our diets.
