The Joy of Cheese Goes Uptown!
As part of the new slate of Joy of Cheese autumn events, we are pleased to announce a series of cheese and wine pairings at Premier Cru, the prestigious wine shop at 1163 Madison Avenu (between 85th and 86th). Our series will consist of three Wednesday evening tastings, September 21, October 19th and November 9th. The events will begin at 7pm; tickets are $45 and available via Premier Cru, 212-534-6709.
Each event will involve six pairings of cheese and wine with a central focus. In September we will present the New, New World Classics in cheese and Premier Cru owner Michael Eigen will chose six wines to pair with them. This tasting will highlight the increasing array of extraordinary cheese being made in American, Canada, and perhaps Australia.
Our October event, The Best Gruyere Ever and Five Other Cornerstone Cheeses, will focus attention on the work of leading European affineurs (masters at aging cheese) and the difference they make in familiar cheeses like Gruyere, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Stilton and others; for those unfamiliar with the work of Rolf Beeler, Marcel Petite, Neal’s Yard and others, it will be like having these cheeses for the first time again. We will sample and discuss six cheeses and six wines again chosen by Premier Cru owner Michael Eigen.
Our November event, Great Cheeses for Holiday Entertaining, is nearly self explanatory. We will choose six cheeses that are perfect for the seasonal gatherings and Eigen will choose six wines to pair with them.
Again, each event starts at 7pm; for tickets call Premier Cru, 212-534-6709
