part of a series on Fantasy


About this FieldTrip

Whole Food Market Cambie’s, Jasmine McDonald, is a Certified Cheese Professional (CCP) – making her a nationally recognized authority on cheese! To become a CCP, cheese mongers must complete 4,000 hours of work in the cheese field before they can even apply for the certification process and examination, where they are tested on storage and handling, nutrition, distribution, raw materials, the ripening process, the making process, and categories and types of cheeses.

Join us on November 4th, for an interactive cheese tasting session with Jasmine where she’ll share with you her passion for the cheese culture, take you through her process for becoming a CCP, and give you a crash course in becoming a “cheese sommelier”.

The group will meet here that AM for coffee and pastries and this fun presentation/tour/cheese tasting.

  • 8:30 - 9:00 AM - Welcome coffee & pastries (meet next to Customer Service Desk, simply turn right at the entrance)

  • 9:00 - 9:50 AM – Meet Jasmine McDonald, learn what the heck a Certified Cheese Professional is, what it takes to become one, and then taste of cheese and learn how to pair them with other things you love!

  • 9:50 - 10:00 AM - Recap, sharing, fun

We look forward to welcoming you at the Whole Foods Market Cambie for a fantastical morning of cheese & learning.

There is very limited space available. Please only sign up after you checked your calendar and you can really make it!
