Dear Valued Draeger's Patron,

Amid the ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus COVID-19, Draeger's is closely monitoring the latest reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and is taking a number of precautionary measures for the health and safety of our customers and employees.

As a safety precaution, we have decided to close our Cooking School through April 30, after which we will re-evaluate the public health situation.

We are contacting all customers who are registered for classes. Thank you for your patience and understanding,
The Draeger Family

Kirstin Jackson

Author of It’s Not You, it’s Brie: Unwrapping America’s Unique Culture of Cheese, Kirstin Jackson is a cheese and wine writer, consultant, and teacher. She loves teaching people how to stretch mozzarella curds in cheese making classes as much as she adores sharing her favorite French Alpine cheese in pairing classes! She blames her parents, who took her on trips to the California dairy country at a very young age for feeding her obsession. From visiting Comté caves to wandering through Loire Chenin Blanc vineyards in France, Kirstin travels extensively. After spending two months flipping cheddar slabs in England and washing funky cheese rinds in Ireland, Kirstin fell so in love with the curd that she started to teach cheese making classes upon her California return. She visits domestic cheesemakers any chance she gets, and reports back on her adventures on her blog. Kirstin went to the California Culinary Academy and studied Cultural Anthropology at UC Berkeley.
