Vive la France! A Guided Cheese Tasting (Montclair, NJ)
Cheese is a many splendored thing - indulge in a delicious, gourmet cheese tasting! These classes are perfect for the cheese curious as well as the newly obsessed. I will take you on a decadent cheese-themed culinary tour around the country and across the ocean through a sampling of several artisanal cheeses. You will sample cheese treats sourced from specialty cheese shops in New York City as well as finds from right in your own backyard.
By the end of the tasting you will know the difference between a bloomy rind, a natural rind and everything in between. We will discuss how to put together a cheese board for a party, wine and beer pairing ideas, proper cheese storage and how to approach a cheese counter.
- Samples of artisanal cheeses
- Bread, nuts, dried fruit, dark chocolate and other accompaniments
- Cheese reference sheets chock full of info to help guide you after the class
- Length of class is approximately one hour
I teach these classes at special event spaces within the Montclair, N.J. region. You may also hire me to host a private, customized tasting at your home or preferred event space. Consider a guided cheese tasting class as part of a dinner party, cocktail event, birthday party, anniversary party, bachelor/bachelorette party - really, any event you'd like to make just a little different!
