Cheese 101 (#CharitableCheeseCause Benefiting Fresh Chefs Society)
Our "Cheese 101" classes are an intimate way to get to know the "7 Styles of Cheese." We guide you through each style of cheese and taste specific examples (both pasteurized and unpasteurized), accompanied by olives, nuts, and Easy Tiger bread. We'll also bring out a number of additional pairings like chutneys and charcuterie bites, depending on that evening's cheese selection.
The best part? You get to indulge and feel good about it. This class is our Charitable Cheese Cause Class of the Month. We're proud to partner with Fresh Chefs Society and donate a portion of the sales from this event back to their organization. They empower foster youth with the skills necessary to take charge of their eating lifestyle through meaningful educational experiences with community cooks, chefs, and restaurants. For more information on Fresh Chefs Society and how you can get involved, please visit their website.
Note: Doors open at 6:15pm and the event starts at 6:30pm. You may choose to arrive early and separately purchase our wine or beer pairings from the Cheese Shop prior to the class the day of the event. Should you choose to bring your own wine or beer, there is a $4 set-up fee. As the tasting wraps up around 8:00pm, we'll give you and your guests time to mingle and enjoy the Cheese House, while we cut-to-order any cheese from the class that you'd like to purchase so you can re-create the tasting at home. Personal delivery of cheese directly to your chair. Does it get any better than that?
