During this interactive class, you’ll learn all about putting together the perfect holiday cheese and charcuterie platter, from selecting cheeses, to figuring out the best accompaniments, to learning how to arrange everything on a platter. Sampling will be encouraged throughout the class, and at the end of the workshop, you’ll have your own grazing board to take home with you.
All supplies will be provided, including cheese, meats, and accoutrements, a small wood board to keep, and a box to take your platter home in.
Additionally, we’ve partnered with Apologue Liqueurs, who will provide cocktails for the event and teach attendees how to make the perfect holiday punch. Apologue is a Chicago-based maker of spirited liqueurs for those who care about what they drink. Apologue's liqueurs are crafted from entirely natural, non-GMO ingredients to create expressions that are equal parts delicious, adventurous, and versatile.
Wine and beer will also be available for purchase in the Local Foods market. We hope you join us for a fun afternoon of socializing, cocktails, and learning all about the art of putting together the perfect cheese board!
