Fairfield Cheese Company Classes Are Back in Session

Stephanie Webster

School is back in session, and I don't mean the kind that requires boarding a yellow school bus. I'm talking about an education involving terms like bloomy, soft-ripened, blue-vein, washed-rind, and brined. Fairfield Cheese Company's Fall/Winter cheese class schedule is out with a full offering for any level of cheese appreciation. Check out the full line up below:

Tuesday, September 20th 7-9pm: Cheese 101

Are you a cheese lover?   Do you want to know more about it? Cheese 101 is the place to start. Sit and relax over a plate of some of our best cheeses (with a little wine to wash it down, of course) as Laura and Chris bare the basics. We'll guide you through a scrumptious tasting of fresh and bloomy cheeses, washed rind and aged, plus a variety of cow, sheep, and goat cheese, all while learning about cheese-making.  Leave with your new-found knowledge and order with confidence the next time you're at a cheese counter.  $45.00

Tuesday, October 4th, 7-9pm: Oktoberfest, Cheese & Beer

If you can't make it to Germany's annual Oktoberfest this year, why not join us for the next best thing? This class is a festive tribute to German food and beer culture. We'll sample the most beer friendly cheeses and Chris will prepare a few traditional German goodies to accompany the beers of the season. $45.00

Tuesday, October 11th, 7-9pm: And The Winner is...2011 American Cheese Society

In August the American Cheese Society holds its annual conference and competition where hundreds of American-made cheeses go head to head to determine which ones will be deemed the best of the best in their specific categories. It also happens to be American Artisan Cheese Month so this class will be a celebration of our own country's talented cheesemakers. We'll taste some of the winners and discuss the revolution in American made cheeses.  $45.00

Tuesday, November 8th, 7-9pm: Fondue

Fondue is back big time, and what better way to get together with friends and family on a cold autumn night? We'll experiment with several different fondue recipes using a variety of alpine and other hearty cheeses in all their warm and creamy glory.  We'll have lots of delicious dipping accompaniments and a couple of wine selections to add to the fabulous fondue fun.   $45.00

Tuesday, November 15th, 7-9pm: Cheese & Wine Round Robin with Harry's Wine & Liquor

This class is for a game group of cheese and wine lovers who are ready to get down to some serious tasting.   In this class,  we will pair six cheeses with four wines and  rate the pairings on a score sheet.  Get ready for some lively discussion about what works and what doesn't as we discuss the basics of pairing cheese with wine. $50.00

Tuesday, December 6th, 7-9pm: Cheese and Chocolate

Indulgence in great food and drink around the holiday season is nearly universal, and tonight we do it right!  We're kicking off the holiday season with a carefully paired tasting of cheeses and chocolates and washing it down with sparkling wine. A rather indulgent evening for sure. Let the holiday decadence begin!  $45.00
