BARRIE LYNN “The Cheese Impresario”
The Cheese Impresario is a former advertising executive who always loved food, wine and entertaining. I have been a dedicated member of Slow Food for years and took a client to a fund-raiser to benefit Slow Food. It was an artisanal cheese tasting event and I literally flipped out! The flavors, the cheesemakers who take total pride in what they produce and the diversity of cheeses inspired me to invent The Cheese Impresario, from pure passion for artisanal cheeses.
The Cheese Impresario writes the “Cheese Matters” monthly column in The Beverly Hills Times and has been featured in USA TODAY, VARIETY, Wine Spectator, The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Candy, the popular food blog EatingLA, Ben Adair’s “Pacific Drift” on KPCC 83.9 FM in Los Angeles, KGO TV, KTLA TV and E! Entertainment. The inclusion of her personally hosted Artisanal Cheese & Wine Tasting Adventures in the Oscars and Emmy Gift Baskets as well as the Golden Globe Awards Celebrity Retreat has attracted celebrities who include Mira Sorvino, Oscar winners Three 6 Mafia and Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Jeff Garlin. Barrie Lynn – The Cheese Impresario produces and stages cheese events at unique venues and wine festivals throughout the country. The Cheese Impresario also makes appearances on behalf of “all things cheesy.”
