Our Story

Award-winning chef, cheesemaker, culinary educator, and founder of The Epicurean Connection for Sonoma Valley, Sheana Davis has enthusiastically supported the artisan and farmstead cheese movement for over 20 years. Together with Ben Sessions, they break down the barriers to cheesemaking by making it accessible, easy, and fun!

Experiences for Any Occasion

Sheana teaches cooking classes, conducts workshops, and hosts events all over the United States and beyond. The San Francisco Chronicle says, “Sonoma chef Sheana Davis is known for her handcrafted cheeses such as Delice de la Vallee, a triple-cream blend of cow’s and goat’s milk treasured by customers like the French Laundry.”

We offer unforgettable catering in Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area for lunches, dinners, farm tours, cheese pairings, beer and wine pairings, vineyard celebrations, fundraisers, holiday parties, corporate meetings, and many other creative events.
