Event Details

These days, many people and companies in the United States sell fine artisan cheeses, but few have traveled as far and devoted as much effort as Formaggio Kitchen has to reach the world's best producers. Join our owner, Ihsan Gurdal, and our very special guest Philippe Goux, affineur for Fromageries Marcel Petite, as they illustrate this point with stories and samples from one of our top lines of cheese - Marcel Petite Comté. Our classic Alpine-style wheels from France's top Comté affineur are truly some of the world's best, but they didn't come easy. Ihsan will share tales from his years of pilgrimages to the Jura, letting you in on his quest to gain the respect and trust required to receive the highest quality wheels of Comté. Similarly, Philippe will expand on what he looks for in a perfect wheel of Comté with insights from his decades of experience with this incredible cheese. During this exploration, you'll sample the cheese at six different ages, ranging from young, milky-sweet Trois Sapins all the way up to extra-aged, extra-delicious Grand Cru. (The latter is particularly special, as we're allotted only a few wheels each year around the holiday season). Each of these cheeses will be expertly paired with charcuterie, condiments and regional wines. 

NOTE: This class is held at our classroom annex, not our retail location. The annex is located at 67 Smith Place in Cambridge, and we highly recommend reviewing the directions available here
