Let's face it: Cheese makes everything better. The Cheese Course -- a chain with four locations throughout South Florida -- is a nod to the stores of Europe that sell one item done extremely well. Patrons wander through the odorous shop and are encouraged to sample from more than 150 cheeses from all over the world before making selections. Take a seat and enjoy a custom cheese plate sampler, or order from the bistro menu (sandwiches, salads, omelets). Knowledgeable staff help steer unsure eaters in the right direction. Throughout the month, people are encouraged to come in for classes on pairings, specialty cheeses, and cooking demonstrations from the cheesemonger.
