2019 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.
Please Note: Our July classes are on a Wed & Thursday evening this month rather than our regular Tuesday & Wed evening schedule.
When it comes to the Basque region, it’s all about the sheep’s milk! Whether the French or the Spanish side of the Pyrenees, ewe is the predominant milk used to make cheese although we do get some delicious mixed milk beauties as well as some delicious cow and goat ‘s milk cheeses from the lower lying valleys. Always smooth and buttery in texture, no matter the milk used to make it, the cheeses of this region are always rich & satisfying, not surprisingly they are consistently our top selling cheeses for good reason! We’ll be pairing with a dry, crisp rose from Provence to contrast the richness of the cheeses while offering us some cool respite in the now warm summer weather. Please join us for what is sure to be a delightful evening!
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 the Loire Valley of central France. Arguably one of the world’s top goat’s milk producing regions and also the home to the beloved Sauvignon Blanc grape, which will naturally be our wine pairing for the evening. This class is always a challenge for us because there are SO many incredible cheeses to choose from that it’s difficult for us to narrow it down to just five! So if you are a lover of small, soft ripened goat’s milk cheeses and crisp white wine, then be sure to join us on what will undoubtedly be a beautiful September summer evening!
