Start off by taking a deep breath. Holiday season is upon us which means you're going to be seeing a lot of cheese plates at your friends, family and co-workers parties.
Before you start stressing about pairings, accommodating your vegetarian cousin-in-law and how many cheese's to buy come and join me for a calm and casual night of cheese, alcohol, bread and pairings. We will run over some basics for pairing cheese, making cheese plates and the knowledge you will need to know to navigate this challenging and delicious time of the year. Let the fromage fest begin.
