Belgian Beer and Cheese

One of the secrets of our cheese counter is the amazing cheeses we import from Belgium. From fresh, tangy goat cheeses to sweet, nutty Gouda, to funky washed rinds, it's truly an embarrassment of riches. And nothing goes with great Belgian cheese like great Belgian beer! The range of styles and flavors of Belgian beer is remarkable and helps bring out the very best in these cheeses. Join cheese and beer buyer Jeremy as we explore some of his very favorite beer and cheese pairings!

We are donating a portion of the profits from all classes in our virtual series to Equal Justice Initiative.

Women in Wine and Cheese (with Rebel Rebel!)

In its earliest days, the craft of cheesemaking was generally carried out by women. With industrialization and the shift to factory-style production, cheesemaking quickly became a professional "trade," associated with work done "outside the home" and therefore mostly performed by men. Interestingly, during the 60's and 70's, this shifted yet again when the feminist movement inspired many women to strike out on their own: some of them chose to go into farming and cheesemaking! Today, many of those artisans still produce some of the best cheeses, wines, and other goodies available at Formaggio Kitchen. Join us for a special collaboration with Rebel Rebel and Wild Child as we highlight women in the wine and cheese industries!

We are donating a portion of the profits from all classes in our virtual series to Equal Justice Initiative.

Guests will receive a 10% discount to Wild Child Somerville with purchase of a Classroom Admission ticket!

This class will take place virtually at 7:30 pm on Sunday, October 25th.

To fully participate in the class you MUST:

1. Reserve your Classroom Admission ticket through Eventbrite! The flat rate of $20 guarantees that you will receive a Zoom link to the event within 24 hours of the class. We kindly ask that you purchase at least one Classroom Admission ticket per household -- these tickets directly support your classroom coordinators/instructors.

2. Reserve your cheese and wine as ticket add-ons

Choose either a Small (fit for two people) or Large (fit for four people) Cheese bundle, which will include four cheeses, two accompaniments, and crackers. The Wine Pairing will include two wines hand selected by guest teacher, Margot.
