Gateway to Great Cheese - Part 2: Mozzarella, Taleggio & Swiss {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 Mozzarella, Taleggio & Swiss Gateways. Wine and accompaniments will be provided.

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

We'll Always Have Switzerland {UPTOWN} / 7:00

Switzerland is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the world. Therefore it might be unsurprising that from this beauty – soaring alps, lush green meadows, snowy white winters – some of the world’s most wonderful cheeses are produced. Yes – cheeses! Not all Swiss cheeses have holes, and Switzerland produces many delectable cheeses. Come try five different Swiss cheeses, each paired with wine, beer, or cider, while learning about the history, culture, topography, and food of Switzerland. Our feelings about it are anything but neutral!
