Can anyone recommend places in the city and beyond that offer cheese classes? Also, any artisinal makers in the area that offer tours?
My brother, a self-professed cheese head, is coming to visit and it would be fun to take him to a class or a cheesemaker.
One of my favorite undiscovered gems in SF is the Liberty Cafe in Bernal Heights. The place is small and cozy and the food stellar. Quality you'd probably be charged $30 an entree somewhere else but because it's a less traveled neighborhood, prices are lower.
Another "neighborhood" joint is the Richmond on Balboa at 6th. A nice wine bar with good food. Plus you can make reservations on OpenTable.
