                    FAR OUT!: UNCONVENTIONAL CHEESE PAIRINGS

                    We all know honey and nuts are great partners for cheese, but what about fruity pebbles, snack cakes, or seaweed? We’ve tried some pretty crazy concoctions over the years, and were delighted more often than not. Intrepid eaters and educators Vanessa Chang and Rachel Perez are teaming up to bring you unexpected, but surprisingly delicious cheese pairings.

                    Cheese + Wine 101

                    Pairing cheese and wine to bring out the best takes a little bit of science and a lot of experience. When you get it right, you know: the combination elevates what is already delicious into an experience that is truly transcendent. Get it wrong, and what should be a great cheese or wine falls flat (or worse.) In this class you'll learn some general guidelines that will help you get it right more often than wrong, and tasting tips that will help you identify your own personal favorites.
