The Pasta Shop’s Cheese Director, Juliana Uruburu (Uruburu is a palindrome, by the way), will help you hone your cheese knowledge with her palate bootcamp entitled, Ultimate Pairings: How to Taste, Select, & Pair Cheese, at The Cheese School of San Francisco (2155 Powell Street) tonight from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Students will receive the same type of training as her staff, in which she’ll show you how to “think about cheese in terms of categories and flavors, pairing each cheese across an array of accompaniments to better understand why some flavor combinations sing and others fall flat.” [Do415]
