Food & Drink
Cheese is produced in more than 40 countries around the world. From the simple ingredients of mil, rennin and salt, there are hundreds of regional varieties of cheese. Each country has its own history and style of production that gives its products their distinctive flavor, aroma and texture. In our Cheese Please! classes, we highlight cheeses of a specific region where you'll learn about selecting, storing, serving, and cooking with the world's best cheeses... as well as pairing them with various wines.
France is one of the world's most prolific cheese-producing countries, with a history of making quality cheeses for more than a thousand years. In this class,you'll learn about selected French cheeses in detail and experience a guided wine tasting with complimenting accompaniments. To round out the offerings, we'll also have sweet and savory French crepes to enjoy.
