Private Events & Parties

Formaggio Kitchen offers customized private events for any occasion. Whether you are looking for a fun company team-building activity or a unique party or celebration, our cheese and wine tastings provide the perfect atmosphere. A great balance between education and entertainment!

Our most popular style of event offers a flight of cheese and beverage pairings, all of which can be modified to focus on specific styles of cheese, pairings, or other foods (Theme examples include French cheeses, Chocolate and Cheese, Local Cheeses, Beer and Cheese, Charcuterie, etc). The standard flight includes the following:

  • 1.5 to 2 hour guided cheese lesson and tasting with one or more cheese experts
  • 8 cheeses
  • 4 beverages (beer and/or wine, carefully selected to pair with two cheeses each)
  • Accompaniments like preserves, honey, fruit, nuts, chocolate


Private tastings are $55 per person, with a 10 person minimum. Groups of 10 or fewer cost a flat rate of $550, with $55 added for each additional person.


We hold events at our Classroom Annex, which is located at 67 Smith Place in Cambridge. We can also travel to you. Offsite events will cost the same per person, though if you need us to supply disposable plates, cups, napkins, and flatware, there is an additional $5 per person charge. In addition, we charge $100 per hour for travel time for locations more than 10 miles from our Cambridge shop.

Group Size

Our Classroom Annex accommodates up to 24 seated people with the option for more during an informal event in which attendees stand (40 people capacity).

During the week, we are able to hold private events only during the evening. On weekends, we can hold tastings at any hour depending on availability.


We do not require a deposit for private events. However, we will collect credit card information to keep on file in order to fully reserve a date. The card will be charged the day before the event.

If you are ready to start planning your event or have questions please contact our private events coordinator anytime via email to

We look forward to hosting your next private event!
