NOLA Hops & Cheese {UPTOWN} / 7pm

New Orleans’ hot climate may not be conducive to cheesemaking but the brew scene here is blowing up! Beer, often referred to as ‘liquid bread’, is an amazing cheese beverage pairing – some say even better than wine. This class will highlight 5 different local beers by pairing them with delicious cheeses that make them shine (and vice versa). Join us as we crack open some spectacular bottles of local brew and answer all of your burning beer and cheese questions!

Gateway to Great Cheese - Part 1: Brie, Cheddar & Havarti {UPTOWN} / 7:00pm

Join author and nationally recognized cheese expert Liz Thorpe for her take on Cheese 101. In her brand new book, The Book of Cheese, Liz maps out nearly 400 cheeses representing 9 common types that you’ve almost certainly heard of and tasted. These “Gateway Cheeses” are your point of entry to a specific flavor range, creating an easy transition into the vast and often-intimidating world of cheese. In other words, Liz’s advice for cheese newbies is that if you can find a cheese that you like she can show you how to find half a dozen more that you’ll love.

In this introduction to cheese, Liz will lead us through a tasting of multiple cheeses from the Brie, Cheddar & Havarti Gateways. Wine and accompaniments will be provided.

$58 – Class + Signed Copy of ‘The Book of Cheese’ at a specially discounted price!***

***If you intend to purchase tickets for the class without the book included, tickets will be $33 – please place your ticket order by calling 504-899-4737. Please note that books purchased the day of will only be available at the full retail price of $40.
