Off the Vine joined co-founders Kate Arding and Lassa Skinner along with a large group of chefs, restauranteurs, cheese makers and locals at Culture Magazine’s Launch party at the Oxbow Market in Napa. An upbeat vibe and great cheese from Ireland (several from County Cork) included a range of styles from soft to firm, blue to washed rind, and a crumbly white cheddar. The cheese was paired with a Napa Smith Porter. Wonderful to see how far cheese culture has come in the US over the last 10 years. We must give thanks to pioneers like Laura Chenel, Alice Waters, the Cow Girl Creamery, and now Kate and Lassa for there evangelistic fervor. The magazine is published 4 times a year.
