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.

Spring Means Goat: French Goat {Uptown} / 7:00

In Louisiana June is really out side of our 2 week spring, but our first version of this tasting had to be cancelled, and French goat milk cheeses really are something to marvel at. They are very important in the cheese world as most cheese makers around the world have modeled there goat cheeses after these French styles. So we are brining this tasting back making this the last of our spring goat milk series even though it is a little late. We will be focusing on Loire vally cheeses the young chevre syles, flavored syles and aged styles. We will take these three different types of cheese and pair them up with multiple wines and look at how the different wine styles affect the flavor of these cheeses and vice versa. Karla Kilgore will be bringing in wines (moslty light wines from the Loir Valley). We are going to be trying out a new format for the tastings using fewer cheeses and pairing multiple wines with each cheese to see the pairing and flavor potenial that is brought out in both so these tastings will be a bit more formal with more information. Bread will be proided by Bellegarde Bakery as usual. French goat milk, nobody does it better, makes me feel sad for the rest. $35.

America!{Warehouse District} / 8:00

One of the great things about the revival of American artisan food ways is that it has given us the freedom from tradition that often hampers new style development in Europe, giving Americans the ability to come up with truely new things. Growing out of Old World Traditions America is now realizing the potental of its vast and varied regions. We will be celebrating some of these lovely regions as pertains to the cheese and wine world. We will be looking at cheese from the East Coast and Beth Reinhard will be bringing wines from the West Coast while our Charcutier Becky Mumaw will be making syles of charcuterie from the Middle. This will be in a new format using fewer cheeses and multiple wines with each cheese to really expore the pairing potential of the cheese with different wines. This format will be more formal with more information. Bellegarde Bakery will provide bread. $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. $60
