Calling all cheeselovers! Whether you're an Epoisses expert or a Roquefort rookie, French Cheese 101 is the place to be. We'll walk you through a tasting of seven families of cheese from those that do it best, the French! From fresh to bloomy to blue and everything in between, PLUS a little language and culture lesson from Victoire Lester of Coucou French School! We will make sure you leave armed and ready for your next trip to Paris with the tools to order the perfect cheese board and impress the locals! We will also be enjoying endless pours of two special French varietals, brought in just for this occasion!
Cheese 101 is recommended for ages 16 and up. Non-alcoholic beverages are available in substitution of house wines.
Coucou French Classes is a language school for adults which offers intimate, culturally savvy, native-taught French classes. Combining language with culture is making Coucou classes simultaneously fun, useful and authentic! Their classes focus on conversation and informal interactions, while still following a thorough grammar curriculum. You can also attend one of their many events and parties, which aim to bridge the traditional aspects of French culture with a more current, modern and youthful vision.
Native of the Loire Valley Victoire Lester has been teaching at Coucou for two years. On top of being a French grammar geek she is an undeniable cheese enthusiast and she's excited to bring her cultural perspective to Murray's Cheese!
