Tashia Malakasis
"Who Moved My Cheese?"


Internationally acclaimed business woman and popular speaker, The Goat Cheese Lady, Tasia Malakasis, of Belle Chevre (www.bellechevre.com) will be speaking at this month's Training Meeting.

As a successful business woman in New York City, Tashia made the decision to move to Elkmont, Alabama and start a goat cheese farm.  She has been on national speaking tours following appearances on The Today Show and other national talk shows and has been featured recently in national magazines including Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens and Oprah.  We will have goat cheese in our menu and goat cheese recipes from our speaker.


Belle Chèvre has produced a variety of internationally acclaimed chevres since 1989 using time-tested European farmstead techniques.  The company is purposefully small, and each chevre is hand made by its passionate cheese makers. The result is an artisan cheese with a mild and distinct taste and texture that reflects the care with which it was made.

Belle Chèvre cheeses have received numerous national awards from the American Cheese Society and the American Dairy Goat Association, and has been featured in many top culinary books and magazines. Declared "American Treasure" by the internationally known authority on cheese, Steven Jenkins, and acclaimed by chefs and cheese lovers the world over, Belle Chèvre is available at upscale retailers including Dean and Deluca and the Cheese Store of Beverly Hills as well as larger outlets like Whole Foods Market
