Tuesday,  April 3rd. 7-9pm : Cheese 101

Do you love cheese?  Do you want to know more about it? Cheese 101 is the best place to start. Sit and relax over a plate of some of our best cheeses (with a little wine to wash it down, of course) as Chris and Laura bare the basics. Let us guide you through a scrumptious tasting of fresh and bloomy cheeses, washed rind and aged, plus a variety of cow, sheep, and goat cheese, all while learning about cheese-making.  Leave with your new-found knowledge and order with confidence  the next time you’re at a cheese counter.  $45.00

 Tuesday, April 10th. 7-9 pm: Regional Focus: Springtime in Paris, The Great Cheeses of France

We all can’t go to Paris in April but at least we can eat the cheese!  Long ago, the French elevated cheese to an art form.  They continually elaborated, thus achieving greater diversity and providing the world with more and better cheese than any other cheese making nation.  We will taste French greats from several regions and of course wash it down with the appropriate French wine.  $45.00

Tuesday, April 17th. 7-9pm: American Artisan Cheese & American Craft Beer

At Fairfield Cheese Co. we are always asked, “what pairs well with this?” It’s time we share the secret that beer is much easier to pair with cheese and meats than some wines.  From just over the  Brooklyn Bridge all the way to the far reaches of California and beyond, there is an explosion of breweries and creameries that are making beautiful music, each in their own right. With the help of the beer experts at Harry’s Wine & Liquor, this class will show you how to put them together in perfect harmony.  $45.00

Tuesday, May 1st. 7-9pm: Goat-a-palooza 

Spring  is here and that marks the return of what we like to call, goat cheese season.  Join us as we taste a plate of goaty delights that cross all styles of cheese, from fresh chèvre to washed rind, firm and blue. The goat possibilities are endless!  $45.00

Tuesday, May 15th. 7-9pm: Cheese & Wine Round Robin with Harry’s Wine & Liquor

This class is for a game group of cheese and wine lovers who are ready to get down to some serious tasting. In this class, we will pair six cheeses with four wines and  rate the pairings on a score sheet.  Get ready for some lively discussion about what works and what doesn’t as we discuss the basics of pairing cheese with wine . $50.00

Tuesday, May 22nd. 7-9pm: Cooking with Cheese

Everyone who comes into our shop has I’m sure sampled one of Chris’ gougères but did you know that Chris is also a caterer?  In this class Chris will show us how to make a few of his cheesiest tidbits and give us some tips on throwing a great  summer cocktail party.  $45.00

Tuesday, June 5th. 7-9pm: Cheesemonger’s Favorites

We always get asked, “what’s your favorite cheese?”  Well we like to think that all our cheeses are our favorites (like our children) but cheeses do have their seasons; they also have their peak stages of ripeness. A favorite cheese should be at peak, it should have a balanced flavor profile, and the aroma and texture should be appropriate for its type. In this class Laura and Chris will each pick their favorites of the moment and we will discuss what makes a cheese great. $45.00
