Charcuterie Tasting #1 {Uptown} / 7:00

Many of you may know Becky Mumaw as the talented butcher who has provided our tastings with lovely charcuterie. She has recently left her position at Cleaver & Co Butcher shop and works for us now! Because of this fortuitous event we will be starting once a month charcuterie tastings. Becky’s maiden voyage will be a comparison of pate types (Campagne/Mousse) and comparison of dry cured hams (Proscuitto/Serrano) and some salami thrown in for an extra level of comparison. She will be guiding us through the process of production and the long tradition behind these types of charcuterie. We, of course, will have cheese to snack on along with the tasting and bread will be provided by Bellegarde Bakery and fear not there will be wine pairings. If you have an interest in the magic of the pig this will not be a tasting to miss. $30

Abita! Cheddar and Beer {Warehouse District} / 8:00

Beer and Cheese is one of the great pairing partners in the world of food. The history of these two go back to the very origins on man, and one of the best cheeses to pair with beer is cheddar. We will be taking a look at the various types of cheddars from around the world, traditional styles (England,Scotland,Wales) and new world styles (America,Canada). Looking at artisan styles and larger scale production and how those methods effect the flavors. Most Americans have a specific idea of what cheddar tastes like but the range of flavor is vast and much more interesting than your basic American factory cheddar most people are familiar with. And then there is beer. Abita! will be bringing a selection of their new brews and a few of the beers that are only available at the brewery. Abita! Brewmaster Mark Wilson will be here to talk about the beers he makes and the new styles they are just putting out. Bread Provided by Bellegarde Bakery. Beer and Cheddar! $35.

Bubblyotheque {Uptown} / 7:00

Champagne is a truly great wine. Wonderful with food, and cheese is no exception. We will be inviting Dr. Micheal Knisley over to our shop to take us through why Champagne is so wonderful and why it pairs so well with foods. This tasting will be heavier on the information, specifically a compairng and contrasting of multiple champagnes with a few cheeses and examining the effect of the cheese on the different levels of the champagne flavor wise and vice versa. Bread by Bellegarde Bakery will be available as well as charcuterie. Bubblyotheque is the creation of Dr. Knisley (you may know of it through his events at Swirl Wines and at Boucherie) and here is the concept in is words:
It is undeniable: champagne is perfect for important events and special moments – just hearing the POP and seeing the bubbles can lift your spirits in an instant. But, when we save it for special occasions, or just drink it for the bubbles without considering the wine they are animating, we miss a great opportunity. The best winemakers in Champagne will tell you “Wine first, Bubbles after.” While that’s a factual statement, it is also part of the philosophy that underlies a veritable Golden Age for the appellation. The region is full of a new generation of vignerons who are thoughtful, dedicated, and tirelessly finding the way forward in a time of climate change, evolving tastes, and demand for wines that clearly show their terroir or sense of place. Tonight, we want you to a) eat and drink well, b) have fun, and c) begin to think of how the wines of Champagne demonstrate an intriguing range of style and complexity. Not only that, there are many that cost far less than mass-produced bottles on the shelves of the Piggly Wiggly and which are approximately a bazillion times more delicious. You just have to understand them as wines first, realize that big name is not (always) equal to best wine, and taste, taste, taste. Oh, and have knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides to show you the way. And that’s where the Bubblyotheque comes in. I’ll be your guide.
Dr. Knisley is extremely knowledgeable and we will be using his knowledge to the fullest, this is for people who love champlage and want to learn more of its magical intricacies and learn more on its pairing principles using cheese as a guideline ,so there will be quite a lot very valuabe information in this tasting. We will be going through 5 champagnes paired up with 2 cheeses and a few other special little things for our pairing excersises. This is very special and not to be missed. $75
