2012 Fall Classes
Monday, October 15 6:30pm @ Brewery Vivant $40
Cheese and Beer…meant for each other!
Brewery Vivant hosts us to try 5 of our cheeses paired with 5 of their beers! Tonight we’ll team up to teach you about how to pair wine and beer, and you can taste for yourself why this is such a great pairing! Enjoy the ‘abbey’ atmosphere and amazing, food friendly beers of Brewery Vivant and the unusual and delicious cheeses of Art of the Table. Space is limited!
Monday, October 22 6:30pm @ Uptown Kitchen $40
Italian Cheese and Salumi
On the heels of Cheesemonger Kate’s return from a food tour to Italy, Kate will share her enthusiasm for what she’s learned there along with the cheeses she has selected for us! Though our favorite salamis don’t come from Italy, the person who makes them does! We have three amazing salamis made by Cristiano Cremenelli, and they make for an amazing experience paired with Italian cheeses. We will do it up, with antipasti and more for the true Italian experience!
Monday, November 5 6:30pm @ Uptown Kitchen $40
Prepare the Plate! How to Design Your Holiday Cheese Plates!
From simple to elaborate, we’ll give you examples of at least three different plate arrangements and let you try a number of cheeses and accompaniments to make your cheese plate shine. With a little know how, you will be a well-informed cheese plate making machine! Not our standard class, but great for preparation for the holiday!
2013 Winter Cheese Classes
Monday, January 14 6:30pm @ Brush Studio $55
Pull out your beret…we are going French AND artsy!
Join us at Brush Studio in EGR for a night to paint, eat & drink! We’ll be painting a French scene (there will be an instructor there and it will be easy, no worries!), eating French cheeses, and drinking French wines! Who knew you could do all of that at the same time & have fun too?!
Monday, February 4 6:30pm @ Uptown Kitchen $40
Intimidated by fondue? Do you think it can only be Swiss cheese? Learn about the history, the ritual, and the how-to of fondue. There are so many options for the cheese and the sides! We’ll even provide a little dessert (chocolate fondue, of course!).
Monday, March 4 6:30pm @Bar Divani $40
Cheddar and Whiskey
Warm up your soul with a tasting of whiskey and cheddar. The somewhat surprising combination will be an eye opening experience! This will be a great way to taste the vast differences between whiskeys and cheddars – as you experience their creaminess & sharpness!
Monday, March 18 6:30pm @Uptown Kitchen $40
Cheeeeeeese…the kind that oozes!!!
Join us for the cheeses that run and that we usually don’t cut. Try these cheeses side by side and realize why they are so special and why it is worth it to indulge in the whole thing!!! These cheeses can be the centerpiece of a meal, dessert or any get together! All my favorites: Valencay, Epoisses, Harbison, St. Felicien, and more!
