Cheese & Soda Pairing...
Cheese & Soda Pairing with Maine Root Soda
Wed 6/17 - Deadline TODAY to purchase tickets If you’ve watched any of our Facebook Live tastings that John and I have hosted, you know that we always have bubbles in hand - whether a Rambler (local sparking water) or sparkling wine, we love the effervescence of bubbles when paired with palate-coating cheese. But it doesn’t stop with wine or water. Indeed, we love SODA PAIRINGS! So we’re teaming up with another local company, Maine Root Soda, to offer a Cheese & Soda Pairing. It comes with 4 sodas, 8 cheeses, and food pairing bites and bread. All the sodas are Fair Trade certified, made of 100% organic cane sugar, and caffeine-free. Will you join us for this (alcohol-free) fun flavor explosion? Purchase tickets today. You’ll pick up via contactless curbside on Wednesday and join us on Facebook Live at 6pm. (If you need to watch later, you can access the video on our facebook page later in the evening.) Tickets here.
For the month of June, “Facebook Live with the Antonelli’s" is brought to you by Rambler - a sustainable sparkling water made in Austin and proudly partnered with Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation, helping to conserve Texas lands and waters for future generations. Because we love bubbles and cheese, Rambler is graciously donating a can with each ticket purchase to serve as your perfect palate cleanser during our tasting. Thank you Rambler!
Tasting - Behind the Scenes with Cypress Grove Chevre (California)
Sat 6/27 (6-7:30pm) - One-of-a-Kind Event! Humboldt Fog. If you haven’t heard of her, she’s considered the “Original American Original” cheese and a striking beauty on any cheese plate. With her bright white mold and iconic ash line through the center, she’s immediately recognizable. Made by one of America’s first artisan cheesemakers of post-Industrial times, Cypress Grove Cheese operates in California and was the original brainchild of Mary Keehn after she caught a few wild goats. Learn about this cheesemaker, the history of the cheese, how they operate, and how they’re braving the pandemic in this tasting. John will be joined by special guest and Cypress Grove rep and ACS Certified Cheese Professional Michele Haram (coincidentally also one of our first cheese mentors) as we taste through 5 different goat milk cheeses (from soft to hard), as well as a sheep milk gouda. We’ll watch videos on the goats and how their cheese is made, as Michele leads us through this “behind the scenes” experience. And we’re thrilled that we get to be one of the first in the nation to taste a new Humboldt Fog Remix - a play on their original but this one studded with chocolate from Dick Taylor. Taste with us, enjoy, learn, and find out how we can keep our dairies in business and continuing to make delicious cheese. $40pp; (6 cheeses, 6 food pairings, and accompaniments) Tickets here.
