2018 CHEESE CLASSES
We love to talk cheese almost as much as we like to eat it. Maybe it’s just us, but the whole cheese-making process, and the stories behind the makers, is udderly (sorry) fascinating. The theme changes from month to month, but most classes feature about 5 cheeses paired with one wine (or beer, or honey, or...you get the idea).
Please read our Cancellation Policy & Seating Request Policy before making your purchase.
First off, no, this is not about "American Cheese". We are tasting cheese, from America. Big difference. Huge.
Western Europe has, for good reason, always been considered home base for most of the world's great cheeses. However, lately we upstarts in the colonies are making a break for it and it just so happens are making a name for ourselves in our own right. This tasting will be focused on tasting some of the newest and tastiest that this country’s aspiring cheese makers have to offer! And trust us, your taste buds will be delighted.
Join us in August for a stroll through Northern Italy. Arguably one of the world’s top food regions when it comes to cheese, wine and of course truffles! This class is always hard because there are SO many incredible cheeses to choose from that it’s difficult for us to narrow it down to just five. So get ready for a range of delicious cheeses from soft and buttery to firm and nutty, all of which happen to pair wonderfully with a light Marzemino red wine from Lombardy. Never heard of Marzemino? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Marzemino is native to Northern Italy and is a relative newcomer to the US. But lucky for us, Kermit Lynch has begun importing a delightful one from La Basia Winery located near the shores of Lake Garda. So please join us for what is sure to be a rather enjoyable summer evening!
PRIVATE Cheese & Wine EVENING
Need a fun event for a group of 12-25? Well, our private cheese & wine classes are a unique and delicious option. Starting at $65/person, our private classes include 3 cheese "flights" with 3 cheeses and one wine per flight for a total of 11 cheeses & 4 wines during the course of the evening. The fourth & final flight is typically a blue cheese followed by handmade chocolates paired with a dessert wine. But really, we can customize any private class menu to your desire. Private classes typically last 2-3 hours with a 30-minute intermission where we serve salad & charcuterie. For more details, please contact Kathryn.
