What you'll learn in this spirit & cheese class:

Cheese certainly loves its partners wine and beer, but it's high time for cheese to branch out a little--this time to the delightful spirit from across the pond. Join us as we explore the ins and outs of Scotch with Allan Roth of Brooklyn's Char No. 4, shedding some light on what defines a Scotch, how to assess it, and how various ages, blends, and malts contribute to its final flavors. To complete the experience Murray's store manager Lisa Griffin will be on hand to pair each whisky with its perfect cheesy compliment. Savor the peaty smoke of an Islay malt with the rich, boullion flavors of cheddar, and sip a smooth, velvety single malt alongside a caramel-sweet Gouda. Raise a glass to grains over grapes!

School: Murray's Cheese

The History of New York's Oldest and Best Cheese Shop: Murray Greenberg (never met him; he died before I got here) was a Jewish Spanish civil war veteran and communist who opened a wholesale butter and egg shop a few doors up Cornelia street in 1940. The old timers tell me that even though he was an...

Attended: Cheese 101: High End Cheese

Enjoyed the course and the facilitator was very knowledgeable. Drinks were kept flowing and atmosphere was kept nice and informal and relaxed. The room itself was a little small ( everyone was little cramped together) and there was about 25 mins of preamble while everyone was sat there salivating over tetr cheese. Better to let people dive in straight away and structure the information knowledge and anecdotes ( which is all great) around the qualities of the cheeses themselves. If left too long most people give up listening and go straight into the cheese tasting and then lose the added value of the commentary ( as most on my table did!)
