Build-Your-Own Charcuterie Board
Feb 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Build-Your-Own Charcuterie Board

Meat & cheese boards have become a staple on many restaurant menus and are the perfect entertaining plate, as well as a way to try different types of meats and cheeses. Coming to the United States from Europe, we have jumped on the charcuterie train and are being more creative than ever with how to design a board. Join Michael Paoletti of Food, Booze & Hiccups as he describes the types of meats, cheeses, pickles, fruits, jams, and more that can be added to your charcuterie board. He will teach you how to pair each meat with accouterments that balance, all while creating a beautiful display for all to enjoy. Please bring with you board or platter that you would like to build your charcuterie board on to bring home!!

Fondue Fun 101

Fondue Fun 101

What a better way to bring community together than through fondue. This timeless Swiss tradition dating back to the 1930s is never short of a good time sharing a communal meal with people. Traditionally served over a communal pot with a portable burner or a candle, if you can skewer it, you can fondue it. In this class you will get to create your own cheese blend for the first pot, cook assorted meats and vegetables in broth for the second pot, and indulge in chocolate and dipping treats for dessert.
