Join PYC and Sommelier, Kristen Siebecker on October 2, 2013 at 6:30p.m. at West Elm Market in Brooklyn! There we will showcase not only wine and cheese, but also all the cool stuff you can use in your home with wine and cheese. And all students receive a 15% discount to use after class in the store!
This time we tackle wine and cheese pairings and we have cheese expert Chris George to help guide us. Chris says (with his English accent):
"Cheese is a truly amazing food. Treasured by many, reviled by a few and, despite being a staple of our diets, misunderstood by most. Cheese has sustained us for millennia in its many glorious forms - be it dense and rich, soft and mold encrusted or blue veined and pungent - yet it originated from just a few simple ingredients: milk, rennet and salt, and long before anyone had even heard of Louis Pasteur."
And wine...well...it goes terrific with cheese!
This class will give everyone from the beginning wine drinker to the experienced oenophile some easy pairing guidelines.
We will cover topics such as:
-How to properly open a bottle of sparkling wine
-Going to or hosting a party? What type of wine/cheese should you bring/have?
-How to identify what you like (or don't) about wine and cheese
-Tips to pair your wine and cheese
You'll be able to ask anything about wine and cheese and get helpful tips to pick the perfect wine to go with any situation.
We will taste at least four great value delicious wines and scrumptious cheeses specially selected to not only be wonderful on their own but that compliment each other to bring out the best pairing possible.
All cheeses selected will be naturally gluten free as well! Both regular and gluten-free crackers will be provided.
With these nuggets of knowledge, you'll be in the coolest wine-nerd and cheesiest authority in the room!
