Cheese & Honey with Two Hives Honey (In Person)
When West Texas-raised Tara Chapman got the beekeeping bug, a 2015 Austin Food & Wine Alliance grant helped launch her vision: Two Hives Honey. With a goal of keeping bees localized to their native hives, and without additives like high fructose corn syrup or paraffin wax, Two Hives wrangles neighborhood micro-apiaries managed by unlikely beekeepers all across Central Texas. With deep reflections of seasonality & terroir, Tara's dream of micro-apiaries truly captures the unique tastes of Texas. "Every neighborhood in Austin should have its own honey," Tara says. And so it is!
We'll taste through specific examples of the Styles of Cheese (both pasteurized and unpasteurized) – each paired with a unique selection of local artisanal honeys straight from Two Hives Honey. Accompaniments like Spanish Quicos (corn-nuts) and scratch-made Easy Tiger baguette round out the spread.
As the tasting wraps up after about an hour-and-a-half, we'll give you & your companions time to mingle and enjoy our turn-of-the-century Cheese House, while we cut-to-order any cheese from the class that you'd like to take home. That's right – you'll be able to re-create your personal highlights from the tasting at home, and we'll deliver your selections right to your seat – and ring you up on-the-spot! Personal delivery of cheese directly to your chair...does it get any better than that?!
