Normandy / 7:00
Normandy is a very lush area perfect for cattle and has some of France's most famous cheese. From full aroma washed rinds to creamy Triple Creams Normandy has it all. Come try some wonderful cheeses paired with northern french beer and wine and some specialties of Normandy.
Austria / 7:00
Our friends at Winebow Distribution will have Master Sommelier Jesse Becker in town and his area of expertise is Austrian wines. It would seem a waste to have such a knowledgeable wine expert around and not take advantage, so will we be featuring Austrian wine with all forms of Germanic cheeses (Austria, Germany, Switzerland, North Italian). Chris Noyes of Winebow will be providing the wine.
Bordeaux / 7:00
Bordeaux is one of those regions of the world that is spoiled for riches, full of fantastic culinary delights. Cheese and wine are no exception. These two products from this area, are and have always been, respected as benchmarks of there types. Wine and cheese makers all around the world copy the styles of Bordeaux with varying degrees of success but nothing can compare to the originals. We will be providing cheeses and Beth Kehn of Republic National Distribution and George Brown of Vino Wholesale will be bringing there favorite wines. For lovers of fine wine and beautiful cheese this tasting will be a true joy to attend.
Cheddar 101 / 7:00
Cheddar is one of the world's most popular cheeses and one of our favorites at the shop. We will be showing an overview of cheddars from the English traditional (Ireland and Scotland may make an appearance) types to the new world of America, Canada and Australia. Beers and wines will be paired with the cheeses.
Chocolate, Beer & Cheese!!
Bittersweet Confections will be hosting a Chocolate, Cheese and Beer tasting. Cheryl Scripter (the owner of Bittersweet) has been kicking this idea around for a while to use beer instead of wine in a chocolate tasting, so Bayou Teche and Crescent City Brewhouse will be providing the beer and Saint James Cheese will be providing the cheese and Bittersweet Confections the chocolate. Oh what wonderful delights!!! Call Bittersweet Confections for all reservations and pricing 504-523-2626.
Allegrini Wines / 7:00
Allegrini is one of the most highly acclaimed Italian Wineries particularly their amarone production. The current winemaker Franco Allegrini was responsible for a revolution in Valpolicella wine making, pioneering several innovations. Allegrini is now the benchmark of the Valpolicella region. The vineyard is located around the town of Verona so we will be pairing these beautiful wines with cheeses from the region Veneto. A wonderful Italian night.
