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.
In the theme of Oktoberfest, we thought we’d celebrate the pairing of beer + cheese in the month of October. And given that cheddars and goudas originated in renowned beer making regions, the modern day countries of England and Holland, we thought featuring these two sister styles of cheese would make for a great class. We’ll be tasting 6 cheeses in all, paired with 3 different styles of beer for an evening of tastiness and fun!
People ask us all the time what is the best cheese producing region is and we act like it's difficult to answer but in actuality it's the Alps. It's pretty straightforward. Not to say that other regions don't produce equally good cheeses, but what I find so fascinating is that absolutely everything we get out of the area is consistently of stellar quality. You can chalk it up to the verdant Alpine pastures teeming with wild herbs & flowers, a rich, storied cheesemaking tradition, plus Swiss work ethic and a commitment to excellence. These elements combined produce incredible cheeses year in and year out. And this year we'll be featuring cheeses from the Alp that we've adopted - Steiner's Hofberg!
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.
