Aperitif/Digestif (Happy Beginnings/Happy Endings)

In many types of cuisine cheese and wines are used to get the appetite flowing or as a special top off to a great meal. The Italian antipasto and French hors d’oeuvre and Greek meze are good examples of aperitif style and in Spain and Portugal cheese are paired with Sherry and Port and Madeira as a digestif. Many of the wines are a bit non-traditional such as vermouth that have herbs to give additional flavors and fortified wines like sherry and port. Cheese itself has the ability of be savory and in some cases sweet and sour to give the beginning or ending of a meal a special touch what, would any French meal be like with out a cheese course, or the wonderful match of blue cheese and port. Bellegarde Bakery will be providing bread, Cleaver & Co will be providing charcuterie and we will have a few extra things as well: Chris Hannah of French 75 has crafted us a special cocktail for the event and Armando Ortiz of Crescent City Cigars will be providing the option of having a cigar at the end of your tasting. Beth Reinhard of Republic Distribution will be providing wines. $30
