We've all been there: Dressed in your black-tie best, small forks lightly clanging on miniature plates, light conversation about politics or art, and suddenly...cheese. There, on the waiter's tray between you and the sophisticate you've been struggling to impress all night, and not a label in sight. Parrano or robusto? Gouda or goat? And where do you put the toothpick when you're done? Nothing less than your good name is at stake, so wake up and smell the dairy air. Let Scardello Artisan Cheese show you the ropes at Cheese 101. Class is $30 per person. Your cheese awakening begins at 7 p.m. at 3511 Oak Lawn Ave. Call 214-219-1300 for reservations, or visit scardellocheese.com.
