We are proud to announce a new exhibit of paintings by Cheese Board member Patricia Silva who died last January from mesothelioma. Her art reflects what she was most passionate about in life: flamenco song, which she performed widely in the Bay Area, her Mexican heritage, its revolutionary spirit and folk traditions, as well as the natural landscapes that moved her and gave her peace. The show is the first of three exhibits of her work. They will be followed by a special event, a benefit silent auction of some of these paintings—as per her wishes, the proceeds will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Details for the event will be posted on the Cheeseboard website.
The paintings that are part of this exhibit can also be seen on the dedicated website.

Learn how to switch out lemon juice for vinegar or even buttermilk. Then, as the cherry on top, learn a recipe for the most decadent member of the cheese world: mascarpone.

Learn which milk to buy and how to best age your fresh cheese puck into a fragrant finale.
