Murray's Classes

At Murray’s there’s only one thing we love more than cheese - sharing that passion for cheese with you. We’ve designed our educational events to offer you a myriad of ways to get your cheese on: take a class in Murray’s award-winning classroom, The Cheese Course, where you can taste through half a dozen a point cheeses with our expert instructors or join us as we travel to City Winery to marry our illustrious cheese with the fantastic wines produced and selected by the grape gurus at City Winery. If you’re ready to take it up to the next lactic level, enlist in our Murray's Boot Camp, a three day intensive weekend chock full of everything you could ever want to know about cheese and then some. Looking for a private class tailored your group’s interests? We’re happy to work with you to plan a private class that perfectly suits you.

Check out our class options below, and gear up to learn more about cheese than you’d ever thought possible. Questions? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions or contact the Education Department at 212.243.3289 x 42 or
