Cheese…YES, PLEASE - Session 5
Join us for this new series as we take a journey exploring everything you ever wanted to know about cheese.
From how it’s made and the many different varieties to the magic that happens when paired with the right wine. Have you ever wondered which cheese can stay out of refrigeration, or what ‘aged’ really means? Each course, you’ll enjoy 5 cheeses and pair them with 4 wines.
Session 5: Harvest Time for Wines & Cheeses covers new releases of wines and cheeses. You’ll learn about harvesting the flavors of summer and preserving them for the long winter ahead. We will look at why fall cheeses are unique, and what happens when wine ages. Finally we will explore cheese milk’s leap towards immortality.
