The Spirited Whey: Monastic Traditions in Liqueurs and Cheese w/Kara Newman & Diana Pittet
CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK
Monday, December 13, 2010
Kara Newman and Diana Pittet

"The Spirited Whey: Monastic Traditions in Liqueurs and Cheese"
Food and drink owe a great debt to the monastic tradition. Without men of faith, some of our most delectable cocktails and fabulously stinky cheeses wouldn't be here for us to enjoy.

Come get in the holiday spirit by sampling some spirits and cheeses with monastic origins. Learn about their long history (as medicinal elixirs, symbols of hospitality, and of course, sustenance) and current role in the culinary and mixology worlds.

During the program, we'll discuss (and sample!) monastic tipples and some funky washed rind cheeses, delicious vestiges of the monastic way. We’ll also be raffling a basket of cheese and beverages to benefit the CHNY Scholar’s Grant fund.

Kara Newman is the spirits reviewer for Wine Enthusiast magazine and the author of "Spice & Ice:  60 tongue-tingling cocktails." Diana Pittet is a cheesemonger at Sickles Market in Little Silver, N.J. She writes and speaks about the history of cheese.
