Murray’s Cheese U.
254 Bleecker St., at Cornelia St. 212-243-3289
A few hours of sipping wine and deciphering the difference between a stinky rind and a bloomy curd is just not enough.

If one weekend is not enough, for $795 you can get an even more comprehensive, six-week course. Either way, Velveeta is not on the list.
