  Dessert Cheese  
  Beat the February blahs and pick up ideas for Valentine's Day at this evening of fabulous sweet and salty flavours. Enjoy a range of cheeses paired with condiments, cake, chocolate and an after-dinner tipple or two.  
     
  Farmer's Market Cheese  
  With summer just around the corner, eating locally suddenly seems a lot easier–and tastier too. Come sample some of the delicious farmstead cheeses we have in store from Ontario and Quebec, and gather ideas for how to enjoy them with the freshest seasonal produce.  
     
  Charcuterie at the Fromagerie  
  Our ancestors' ancient techniques of preserving meat and milk produced foods so delicious and compelling that we continue to enjoy them today. Fermenting, salting, drying and smoking create the inimitable taste and texture of millennia-old meats like Westphalian ham, Prosciutto di Parma, and Parmigiano Reggiano. Come sample a range of these venerable flavours while learning about their history and production.

  Whisky, Whiskey, and Cheese  
  Some cheese lovers never wade into arguments about whether beer or wine goes better with cheese: these are the folks with a wee dram in their glass and a big smile on their face. Scotch, Irish and North American malt and grain whiskies make fine, sophisticated partners for the most bold, complex cheeses. Join Julia Rogers and Sam Corbeil for this rare opportunity to sip and savour.  
     
  Patio Season Beer and Wine and Cheese  
  Prepare to be refreshed by Sam Corbiel and Julia Rogers as they lead you through their selections of beer, wine, and cheese that will be perfect on a sunny summer patio.  
     
  Fireside Beer and Wine and Cheese  
  When the weather outside is frightful, beer and wine and cheese are so delightful! Join us for another of our popular triple threat classes, hosted by Sam Corbiel and Julia Rogers. Enjoy a selection of warming, potent beers and wines, along with a spread of serious winter cheeses.
