School: Murray's Cheese

The History of New York's Oldest and Best Cheese Shop: Murray Greenberg (never met him; he died before I got here) was a Jewish Spanish civil war veteran and communist who opened a wholesale butter and egg shop a few doors up Cornelia street in 1940. The old timers tell me that even though he was an...

I really enjoyed this class a lot, the teacher and service was great and the presentation was awesome. I just thought it was a bit overpriced.

Attended: Honey Week At Murray's Cheese With Red Bee

Lauren Friedwald gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.


Attended: Cheese 101: High End Cheese

Enjoyed the course and the facilitator was very knowledgeable. Drinks were kept flowing and atmosphere was kept nice and informal and relaxed. The room itself was a little small ( everyone was little cramped together) and there was about 25 mins of preamble while everyone was sat there salivating over tetr cheese. Better to let people dive in straight away and structure the information knowledge and anecdotes ( which is all great) around the qualities of the cheeses themselves. If left too long most people give up listening and go straight into the cheese tasting and then lose the added value of the commentary ( as most on my table did!)

Attended: Wooly Madness: All About Sheep's Milk Cheese

Awesome class. Great balance between cheese history/education and tasting. Jason, the instructor, was knowledgable and easy to talk with. Very pleased with the experience and can't wait to try more classes at Murray's!


Attended: American Craft Beer and Cheese

Very fun and knowledgable staff! Had a great time.


Attended: Cheese 101

I took my dad to this class as his birthday present. We both had a great time, learned a lot about cheese, and greatly enjoyed both the cheeses and wine. Jordan was amazing. She was entertaining, excited about cheese, and very knowledgeable. She made us feel comfortable participating and asking questions.


Attended: Cheese 101

Fantastic energetic and enthusiastic teacher who was very knowledgable about cheese!


Attended: Bee Cool: Bee Raw Honey and Cheese

Well organized and beautifully presented! I learned about the way cheeses are made, and how to identify different types. There are as many different types of honeys as there are flowers and beekeepers willing to try them! When you pair different cheeses with different honeys, you can get an explosion of flavor that you would not expect! The class was fun and delicious! I would heartily recommend it to everyone!


Attended: Mozzarella Making

The instructor and facilities were good. The class was fun with an intro to cheese. The mozzarella making part was easy and results were good. Overall, it was a good class but two issues: they didn't show you how to make the curds, which is the most important part of the process (and the only place they recommended to buy them was in PA). And, the course was very expensive for what you got.


Attended: Cheese 101

Amazing class! A great introduction to understanding about cheese. Sean was great, insightful, knowledgeable, and all for questions and further explanations. Plus, the cheeses were absolutely delicious! Definitely coming back for another class soon.


Attended: Viva la France: French Wine and Cheese

I had a lot of fun! The wine and cheese pairings were excellent and the instructors were upbeat and passionate and knowledgable.


Attended: Mozzarella Making

The teacher was outstanding and the extra cheeses and wine made it very enjoyable. Both my son and I had a great time and want to come back for other courses. Thank you for a very nice Saturday afternoon.


Attended: Mozzarella Making

The class instructor was excellent and a lot of fun :)


Attended: Harmony of Wine and Cheese: Spring Sparklers

Great instructors, great wine and cheese pairings. I didn't learn all that much, but I did get full and tipsy! They give you a list with descriptions of everything you tried, with lots of space to take notes. Perfect for beginners.


Attended: Pours and Tours: Beer Tasting and Cave Tour

Not a traditional "class" in any way- much more of a field trip with an opportunity to try good cheese and beer. A tour guide led us through the cheese shop's "caves" (their cheese storage and aging facilities in the basement) which was a quick but informative 20 minute endeavor. We then got the chance to try four cheese and four beers- we were not given any real instruction on this other than a sheet of paper with some information. If you're looking for a fun, easy weeknight activity, I highly recommend this, but it was not the most "educational" class ever.


Attended: Bee Cool: Bee Raw Honey and Cheese

Really loved the course. This was the first time I had ever done anything like it and would gladly do it again. The instructors were energetic, passionate about what they were teaching and knowledgeable. A fun experience I look forward to repeating.


Attended: Mozzarella Making

It was very good!


Attended: Advanced Mozzarella Making

This class was a lot of fun, and very filling! Rynn explained everything from how to make cow's milk mozzarella (the basics), to what's different about most american mozzarella you buy, to how to make delicious variants like straciatella and Burrata. The class was a tasting for the first half (of 6 different cheeses all in the "mozzarella family" plus ricotta as an additional treat) and then a "how to let mozzarella stretch from curds" hands-on class in the second half. Lots of fun! There were some problems with having enough hot water for everyone to stretch the cheese properly, but it was handled gracefully and everyone had fun (and plenty of red wine/ champagne!) anyways. Getting to take some curds home means that I can practice again tonight! The Murray's classroom facility is also great -- clean, easy to see, but intimate.


Attended: Mozzarella Making

Class was fun and teacher was knowledgeable about cheese. Not sure the price is worth the class.


Attended: Mozzarella Making

The course was fun and different. The instructors were knowledgeable and exciting. I would however say that the room the class was held in was a little tight.


Attended: The Harmony of Beer and Cheese

The pours are small but it is a tasting after all. The cheese is filling but I ate dinner before class just in case. The location is perfect so be sure to stroll around the hood after or before. And the shop was my dream come true... Specialty cheeses, beers, chocolate, and coffee. I die!


Attended: Pours and Tours: Beer Tasting and Cave Tour

The class was great! I've taken a cheese class from Murray's before but it wasn't as cheap as this. The group was chill and our tour guide was very knowledgeable.
