Tuesday, January 15th, 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.

Tuesday,  January 29th, 7-9pm : Perfect Harmony: Cheese & 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, February 5th, 7-9pm: Regional Focus: Switzerland

The cheeses of the Alps are known for their toothsome textures and amazing nutty taste. They are also some of the most densely nutritious cheeses to be found because for centuries these dense, meaty cheeses sustained many a farmer through the long, tough Alpine winter. Jonathan Richardson from Columbia Cheese, which specializes in these Alpine cheeses,  will join us to taste and discuss these popular cheeses. We will also make a big pot of fondue so get ready to eat! $45.00

Tuesday, February 26th, 7-9pm: Mac & Cheese Madness 

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? It really is comfort food at its finest- hot, gooey and  decadent. Join us for an evening of nothing but mac & cheese. Chris will teach us the secrets of keeping it creamy and share with us a few variations sure to please everyone.  We will also wash it down with a few wine pairings of course. $45.00

Tuesday,  March 12th, 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 . $45.00

Tuesday, March 19th, 7-9pm:  An Evening of Charcuterie

It comes by a million names: charcuterie, salami, cured meat...even deli meat. Our meat offerings have grown quite a bit since we opened last year, so we’ve decided its time to delve a little deeper into the world of charcuterie. In this class we will taste through all of our new meat offerings and discuss the growing popularity of this very old world process
