We hope you'll join us for the return of in-person Counter Culture on Monday, October 10 at The Barnyard in Long Island City, NY.
This event is organized by Counter Culture and FWS in cooperation with Murcia Al Vino Cheese PDO, Mahon-Menorca Cheese PDO and Consorcio Serrano Ham. Counter Culture provides a focused opportunity to connect cheesemakers, importers, mongers, and buyers in an interactive, educational environment. Each trade-only event is an intensive, full-day session with ample opportunity to talk one-on-one and network with your industry peers.
In this event you will hear from presenters who will tell you about their product’s unique story of origin, people, process and, of course, taste!
Emilia D’Albero and Joseph Saracino will guide the participants on a journey in the different regions of Spain with Serrano Ham and cheese from Murcia and Menorca.
Emilia D’ Albero is the cheese department manager and buyer at The Greene Grape in Brooklyn, NY.
Emilia is an American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Profesional (ACS CCP) as well as a Cheesemonger Invitational finalist and winner. She has been featured in numerous publications, on television, and in podcasts.
Joseph Saracino is a sales and marketing professional with management experience spanning 40 years.
He has lived in Spain for 30 years and has worked in many areas of the food industry, from meat to confections and dairy. In 1997 he championed the launch of the first Serrano Ham in the USA, including defining the product, marketing material and finally selecting distributors nationwide. Currently he is consulting for Specialities Inc. and Maestri d’Italia Inc.
In addition to the educational content there is the tasting table of cheese, serrano ham and accompaniments that attendees are encouraged to sample throughout the day.
We have a limited number of tickets for each event, so don't delay!
