Ireland (sold out) / 7:00
An early Saint Patrick’s day Celebration. It has been claimed by many (all Irish) that the Irish saved many food traditions in Europe during the middle ages when monks kept many foods from going extinct (not to mention literacy). But Ireland went through some bad times and fell into a very poor existence and sadly lost many of its own food traditions. All this has been changing of the past 20 years or so. Just like in the USA, Ireland is going through a food renaissance and many old styles of cheese are being brought back as well as many small artisanal farmers making some cheese that are the rivals to anything in the world. Gouda styles, cheddar, washed rinds, blues you name it. With lush pastures and the perfect climate for aging cheese it is no wonder such beautiful things are being produced there. Beer and wines will be used for our pairings and it just wouldn’t be right to not include a whisk(e)y or two. SOLD OUT
New World Wine and Cheese / 7:00
United States, Argentina, New Zealand, Chile, these places have become just as famous as there European counterparts for production of wine and cheese and in some cases people think they are even better. We are having Chris Noyes of Winebow bring in some of his favorite wines from South America and New Zealand, while we of course will have cheeses from all around the U.S., Canada, and if the boat is on time Australia and New Zealand. No longer repressed under the colonial thumb these areas are making truly unique products. Price $25.
Monastery Madness / 7:00
Monks. It has been said that during the dark ages all of Europeans knowledge was held in Monasterys, Abbeys and Convents. Many of the wine, beer, bread, and cheese production traditions that are so popular the world over were kept alive or have there origins in the monastic way of life. The Monks and Nuns made their own food stuffs and to honor that and the wonderful traditions they started we are serving products that are produced or have origins in one of the religious orders. Come and enjoy a unique taste of history, the Lord God requests your presence. Price $30.
