South Orangetown Central School District

Thanks to South Orangetown parent and former cheesemonger Jessica Kesselman, Tappan Zee High School Italian Club members were treated to a tasting of Italian cheeses last week! Ms. Kesselman described the history and artisanal production of Mozzarella du Bufala, Pecorino, Taleggio and Parmigiano Reggiano, which students sampled along with prosciutto and Aceto Balsamico from Modeno. Students learned that DOP and IGP labeling of Italian products that guarantee their high quality and geographical origin…and look forward to Ms. Kesselman returning later this year!
