Claudia Lucero at Book Larder
Cheesemaking may seem like just another more-trouble-than-it’s-worth DIY trend, but Lucero is looking to change that with her book of 16 easy cheese recipes. She'll be showing off a favorite recipe from her book One Hour Cheese, answering questions about cheesemaking, and signing books from 6:30–8. The event is free, but RSVPs are still required.
