Named by Austin Monthly as one of the top things to do in the summer and lauded by others, including Zagat Austin, our classes have become known as an awesome way to spend the evening - whether you want to learn more about cheese or just want something fun to do. We truly love talking cheese; it's one of the best aspects of our jobs! Come let one of our cheesemongers guide you through an evening sharing cheese stories, histories, and lots of cheese tastings. Accompaniments include bread, olives, and nuts, as well as other pairings like preserves, chocolates, and more. You can elect to participate in our wine or beer pairings with your separate purchase through our Cheese Shop prior to the event. At the end of the class, we'll happily fresh-cut any cheese or other item sampled that evening for your purchase so you can recreate the evening at home with your friends.
We host all of our cheese classes and private events & tastings in our Cheese House located directly across the street from the Cheese Shop. The Cheese House has been home to many great Hyde Park businesses and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. The history of the house lives on in the wood flooring and ceiling, the architecture, and the original fireplace mantel. We find the Cheese House to be the perfect rustic, yet elegant backdrop for our tastings and events. The Cheese House is located at 500 Park Boulevard. Access the Cheese House parking lot off of Duval Street just north of the house.
