Fancy Cheese Friday

1 min Read Time


Several months ago we taught you how to do high tea the Gilt tech way. Now we show you how to celebrate cheese: Fancy Cheese Friday.

Masterminded by Gilt software engineer Robert Brazier, Fancy Cheese Friday brings together non-vegan and lactose-tolerant Gilt technologists to rediscover the magic that is cheese. Today’s gathering–the second in our history–involved the following cheeses:

  • Kolan hard-pressed cow milk cheese
  • Lorenzo of Cazenovia, NY
  • Guggisberg Baby Swiss
  • Stilton

Plus baguettes, crackers and other bready things. Highlights:


Gilt engineer Asha Seetharam gets her cheese on.


Engineer/published author Miguel Angel Fajardo does the cutting.
