Hooked On Cheese: A Giant Leaves the NYC Cheese World https://t.co/yRmf5Ij3vz— Max McCalman (@maitrefromager) August 30, 2018

Detailing McCalman’s history is to tell the story of artisan cheese in NYC. He began his career at Chef Terrance Brennan’s storied Upper West Side restaurant Picholine in 1995 and during his tenure elevated the concept of “the cheese course” to national acclaim.
