Antonelli's Cheese House (500 Park Blvd) is just across the street from Antonelli's Cheese Shop (4220 Duval) in the heart of Hyde Park. It's a cozy and comfortable venue for classes, tastings, dinner parties, and pop-up sales of all kinds of delectable foods. In August, they're offering classes in food crafting fun for grown ups.
