Sheana Davis, The Epicurean Connection, Sonoma
Private and group classes available
Sheana Davis—chef, cheese maker, caterer, culinary educator, and owner of the The Epicurean Connection—has been enthusiastically supporting the artisan and farmstead cheese movement for 20 years. In 2009, she proudly released her own cheese, Delice de la Vallee, and this year her Creme de Fromage is to be released to the market. Her 9th annual Sonoma Valley Cheese Conference, drawing authors, vendors and cheese makers from all over the United States, is scheduled for Feb 28 to March 3, 2011 in Sonoma, California. Sheana recently opened a neighborhood specialty cheese shop in Sonoma featuring fresh soups & sandwiches, take-out, and local artisan food fare where one can sit under the shady oak in the Springs and visit, sit, sip and sup. She also hosts classes and special events there, and has guest cheese makers, brewers, wine makers and artisan producers, as well as supports local community organizations with a monthly non-profit night. When not behind her counter you will find Sheana teaching cooking classes, conducting workshops and participating as a guest chef at local and national culinary events. She offers a creative and versatile range of food experiences and services while traveling between her beloved town of Sonoma and equally beloved city of New Orleans. She resides in Sonoma with her 17-year-old daughter who joins her on an annual trek to Mardi Gras.
