CIA releases French cheese e-learning module

The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) released an online learning module on French cheese called "Cooking with Fromage: Turning Comfort Food into Comfort Cuisine." The e-learning module offers a primer on French cheese and explores its compatibility with a range of American recipes. It also includes 11 downloadable recipes demonstrated by a CIA chef-instructor in streaming video (including petite chèvre pizzas, pictured below).
