Here’s a quick and dirty rundown of The Joy of Cheese in October. Details to follow soon.,
October 5 at In Vino, 215 E. 4th St. (between Avenue A and Avenue B): Cheesy Happy Hour. I now run the cheese program at In Vino, the renowned East Village wine bar, and from 5-7:30 on Wednesday the 5th we will offer Half Price cheese plates and I’ll be on hand to discuss the cheese, it’s optimal wine pairings and hand out some freebies.
October 18 at 7:30 at The Clerkenwell, 49 Clinton Street: The New Stuff. This is a tasting or some of the newest cheeses on the NYC marketplace. Expect some crazy goat’s milk cheeses from Belgium, sheep’s milk cheeses from England and several new ones from the west coast.
October 19 at 7 at Premier Cru, 1163 Madison Ave: The Best Gruyere on the Planet and Five Other Cornerstone Cheeses You Should Know. At our second autumn event at Premier Cru, a wonderful, cozy Upper East Side wine boutique, we will focus on the very best of six, maybe seven fundamental cheeses. There is a cheese core curriculum and this is it.
October 27 at 7 at the 92nd St. Y: Cheese and Wine. Eight cheeses, eight wines, fun discussions.
