French Cheese & French Wine Pairing Workshop (SOUTHAMPTON)
Pairing cheese with wine should be easy and fun, yet so many people become stressed at the idea of make a wine faux pas. Yet the best part about pairing food with wine is the experimentation and delights at finding a pairing that YOU enjoy. And that's exactly what this pairing workshop is all about ... putting the theory behind food & wine pairing rules into practice and discovering which cheese matches which wine and why!
France is the home to some of the world's greatest cheeses and is famous for its diverse and interesting range of regional cheeses, at least 365 of them!
A full selection of these renowned cheeses will be enjoyed in this classic tasting evening. We will be tasting at least 7 French classics including Brie de Meaux, Camembert, Comte, fresh goat's cheese, Port Salut, Roquefort, etc. Each cheese will be paired with 5 classic wines from France proving a truly memorable tasting evening.
Each French cheese is carefully selected to be matched to a very specifically chosen French wine in order to enhance your overall wine & food experience. We will be going through the rules behind pairing wine & food successfully, and then putting the theory into practice! How fun!!! ;-)
This evening is extremely popular and tickets are strictly limited so we advise early booking.

The measures our venues are enforcing will make your experience with us as seamless as possible and will allow us to minimise numbers of people in the venue at any time. Therefore, we will be running at reduced capacity.

The situation is fluid still and we are hoping to gradually build back up towards normal proceedings and we are appreciative of your continued patience and support.
