A Pair Cheese like a pro four week course!
Pair Cheese like a Pro……there’s more to cheese than wine!
We’re sharing our secrets, don’t miss out! We’re going on a Cheese journey to master the art of ‘How to Pair Cheese Like a Pro’ and you’re invited. You’ll learn how to taste cheese and then which cheeses we’d pair with different wines, beers, whisky and gin.
Why? Understanding how to pair cheese and different drinks is a life skill everyone should have, plus the tasting is going to be a lot of delicious fun too!
Each week will be hosted by one of our drink’s specialists from around the UK.
Week 1 Thursday 16th July, 7.30-8.45pm; Cheese & Wine

You’ll taste four cheeses and four styles of English whisky. Includes a ‘Meet the Maker’ session with Joe from the Spirit of Yorkshire.
Week 4 Thursday 6th August 7.30-8.45pm Cheese & Gin
Finally calling all you Gin Lovers out there, we’ll show you how to pair Gin with Cheese. With the explosion of Gin flavours there’s hundreds of pairing possibilities. We’ll set you up so you can create amazing pairings in the comfort of your own home and impress your Gin friends. You will taste 4 delicious cheese with 2 very different styles of Gin. Sam Alder, our resident Gin expert will guide you through this tasting.
This 4 week course will be delivered via Zoom, joining instructions will be sent though to you upon booking.
Each week we’ll recommend 4 different cheeses to buy and two drinks so you can complete the pairing exercises. The cheeses should be available from a good local cheesemonger or you can pick them up on a good supermarket cheese counter such as at Waitrose. You can buy as much cheese as you like...but we recommend a 20g portion of each cheese per person is about right for the tastings.
The cost of the course is per household, not per person. The costs of the cheeses and the drinks are not included in the course cost.
