Brunch? Flowers? Candy? Done it.
Cheese? Here’s something new. This year, show mom that you’ve been paying attention and sign her up for the Mother’s Day Cheese and Wine event, Saturday evening, May 12, at The Cheese School of San Francisco.
The event, designed with Mom in mind, will settle her in with a little something bubbly before introducing her to a carefully selected flight of cheeses and wines, then, pairing and tasting, sharing different uses for the same cheeses, dressing them up for guests and paring them down for supper in the kitchen, and sharing recipes.
Led by Judy Creighton, writer, educator, and long-time member of the Bay Area cheese community, the event showcases and appreciates the sophisticated, rarified appeal of an elegant cheese and an excellent wine. But Creighton brings it home, too. And at the heart of this event is the concept that a good cheese is a pleasure that’s available in practical, everyday ways, and not simply as a treat for special events – like Mother’s Day.
After you get to know the cheeses, Creighton will share food pairing ideas, casual and formal presentations, and recipes. The class size is small enough to be intimate (and the wine encourages it). Questions and discussion are welcomed.
If Mom loves cheese, but would like to choose her own class, offer her a gift certificate. The Cheese School classes are wide-ranging — some general, some regional, some cuisine-based, others wine or beer-based, and also include cheese making classes. Most classes are two hours long, and include cheese, wine or beer, and food pairings, as appropriate. Refer to the class schedule for more information.
