Tuesday, January 10th, 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,  January 24th, 7-9pm :  Fondue

Fondue is back big time, and what better way to get together with friends and family on a cold autumn night? We’ll experiment with several different fondue recipes using a variety of alpine and other hearty cheeses in all their warm and creamy glory.  We’ll have lots of delicious dipping accompaniments and a couple of wine selections to add to the fabulous fondue fun.  $45.00

Tuesday, January 31st, 7-9pm: The Winter Blues

If you think all blue cheeses are the same this is the class for you.  We will move beyond salad dressing and Gorgonzola to uncover all this family has to offer: milky sweet, earth and nutty, dark and musky, lightly piquant to fiery hot, creamy and spreadable to dry and crumbly  

Tuesday, February 28th, 7-9pm: Regional Focus: Buon Gusto! The Cheeses of Italy

Join us for an evening of discovery into Italy's wealth of luxurious cheeses. Travel down the boot and explore the country’s stunning diversity, from the creamy cow and goat cheeses of Piedmont to the luscious sheep cheeses of Tuscany.  We’ll pour a selection of traditional Italian wines from Harry’s Wine & Liquor to help bring out the very best flavors of the cheeses.  $45.00

Tuesday,  March 20th, 7-9pm: Perfect Pairings: Cheese & Wine

Every so often, we find pairings of cheeses and wines that go above and beyond, complementing each other in a way that can only be described as "Marriages-Made-in-Heaven.”  In this class, with the help of our friends at Harry’s Wine & Liquor, we will pair the perfect cheese with it’s perfect wine match and discuss the basics of pairing  cheese & wine. $45.00

Tuesday, March 27th, 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 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 . $45.00
