CJ Bienert--the cheesemonger from The Cheese Shop of Des Moines (https://thecheeseshopdsm.com/)--will guide us through some specially selected cheeses in an evening of tasting and learning.
CJ is a bonafide cheese expert. He will explain what gives each cheese its properties, the regions where it is produced, and all sorts of other interesting information. Plus the cheese is delicious!
This event is mainly about the cheese! So, if you're not crazy about wine, don't worry.
Each person is provided with a cheese board of six different cheeses and accompaniments.
Each table will be provided with 3 bottles of selected wine (2 reds, 1 white) to pair with 6 cheeses. Each wine will have one cheeses the compliments and and one cheese that contrasts with the flavor. But they will all be good!
This was a first-rate event last Spring and was filled and expect it to be full again. We are limiting the participation at eight tables, so 64 people. Sign-up is first come first serve.
The price is $50 per attendee. The fee will be charged to a member account the night of the event.
To reserve a spot, please register on this event. You can specify the number of guests, which means the people in addition to yourself attending.
We hope you will attend and stay for dinner afterward.
