Fall Reds + Cheese

Italian Softies

When you think of Italian cheese, many of the first picks that come to mind are hard, toothsome cheeses for our pasta dinners; Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano, Pecorino, the list goes on. But, some of Italy's most magical cheeses are beautiful softies just begging to be the star of the show. Join Andy Lax, Italian cheese expert, to experience the most luscious cheeses you never knew you wanted. Robiola, here we come!

Halloween Chocolate + Cheese

Halloween is very special time of year. We pull out our best costume out of the closet and stash our leftover mini kit-kats in that same closet to resist the temptation. But why hide those candies away when you can throw a party and eat them with cheese?! Come prepare for your sugar high with a chocolate and cheese pairing lesson with former Murray's instructor, Christine Clark. You'll find perfect pairings for your favorite Halloween treats and some artisan selections as well. Ghoulish times will be had by all!

Fondue Making

Many of us see fondue as the relic of 1960s dinner parties, pronged technicolor forks in tow. Oh how times have changed! Fondue has made a major comeback and it's more sophisticated and delicious than ever. Join The Cheese School's executive chef Jocelyn VanLandingham to learn the secrets of best melting cheeses, fondue "etiquette" and of course, create your own pot of melted cheesy goodness. Each group will follow a fool-proof fondue recipe and share their spoils with the rest of the class, complete with an abundance of dippers. And no fondue epic is complete without chocolate...if you're not already stuffed!
