Join Columbia Cheese for a tasting of Alpine goodness. So sometimes people tell us that we bring in a similar style cheese. And it's true. We love Alpine cheese. |
Each dairy we work with creates a unique flavor profile. On this evening, we are introducing new Alpine cheese from the Swiss canton of St. Gallen and the Italian region of Lombardia.
We'll start with Güntensberg & Schnebelhorn from Käserei Butschwil in St Gallen. We will conduct an epic horizontal tasting against Scharfe Maxx, Maxx Extra, Challerhocker and Heublumen.
Then, we'll hone in on Lombardia, the cream-centric cradle of yumminess, and home of Ciresa. We just got back from a visit there and want to share a couple of cheeses we fell in love with, discuss the history of the region, and provide a deeper understanding of the word Latteria in the farmstead and village dairy context.
To drink, I am pairing a sparkler and beer to cleanse the pallet and keep us eating. (must be 21 to enter)
Sidenote, I dimmed the lights and bought a disco ball.
