Established in 2003, the Bedford Cheese Shop has spent the last 10+ years building a neighborhood store that welcomes both new and familiar faces. Based on old-world ideals with a loyalty to our family of local and international food producers, we are a small, independently run business dedicated to the time honored traditions of the culinary and agricultural world. Appreciating the seasonality of cheese production, we work directly with farms in order to select cheeses at their perfect peak so as to provide a constantly evolving array of prime goodies. Committed to our small staff of knowledgeable cheesemongers, we guarantee experts in the field who are happy to teach through taste, and have been trained in the art of properly maintaining cheese so that you can be assured of receiving the highest-quality products available. In 2012, we opened our second location in the Gramercy area of lower Manhattan which includes a 15-foot cheese case, three aging facilities, and an education and event space - the Homestead. Proud of our focus on individualized, education-based customer service, we invite you to join us and learn about what we have to offer. Come and taste our cheeses, take a class with us, or just admire what we have to offer.

Great teacher who made learning fun. Add a fun group (many of whom were coworkers), wonderful cheese, and good wine. A wonderful way to spend an evening with friends. Making mozzarella is so much easier than I ever anticipated. And so yummy too!

This class was fantastic! Very informative and super fun! Zoe’s passion for cheese was infectious and she really took time to make sure everyone knew what they were doing and answer all questions. I would love to take another class with her at The Bedford Shop. Really well done overall!

The cheese turned out great and the tasting was an added bonus. Wish we had learned more about the first part of the process (making curd). I can understand why there may not be enough time but I would have liked to see that part of the cheese making too - starting from curds kind of felt like “cheating”.

Whiskey 201: Scotch and Cheese

The class was very laid back and I liked that a lot. There was a brief lesson and then we tasted everything, asking questions as we went. Our host was very knowledgeable! The scotch was good and the pours weren’t cheap. But the real star was the cheese plate - everything on there was so delicious!!
