It's Cheese! Tasting With Cheesemonger Zach Berg says
Join us for a guided cheese tasting with Zach Berg, owner of Berg's Provisions. This event is free and open to the community and participants will have the opportunity to sample various cheeses from across the country with an option to purchase your favorites to take home!

Zach Berg grew up in Metro Detroit. After cooking his way through Michigan State University's School of Hospitality Business he got a job at Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Ann Arbor. Quickly Zach learned enough to start hosting, tasting and developing cheese pairings for the prestigious deli.

In 2010, Zach moved to Napa Valley to attend the Culinary Institute of America, where he was president of the Student Wine Club. After school, he found himself in one of San Francisco’s Top Restaurants RN74. After a year at the restaurant, Zach returned to cheese when an opportunity at Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco became available. Zach worked in the Cheese Department at Bi-rite for four years, eventually managing and training the cheese counter staff. While at Bi-Rite, Zach placed 2nd place in the Cheesemonger Invitational (CMI) 2014, a national competition between the best Cheesemongers in the country. He still holds the highest ranking for any West Coast Cheesemonger. Zach also obtained Certified Cheese Professional status with the American Cheese Society.
