French Cultural Center Alliance Française of Boston
Our presenter, Jennifer Greco’s personal project is to taste each and every one of France’s almost 1500 cheeses. Join us with Jennifer to re-discover the best of French cheese. She will teach you the basics, show you how to build a cheese board and tell you everything about the pairings. Jennifer has carefully picked 5 French cheeses that are easy to find in Greater Boston so you can taste them while learning about them. Jennifer will be pleased to answer all your questions during this workshop.
Cheese list (available at Trader Joe’s):
1) Soft goat cheese
2) Délice de Bourgogne
3) Comté or Cave Aged Gruyère
4) Mini Basque
If you want to pair the cheese with some wine, Jennifer recommends a dry bubbly wine, we suggest Korbel brut or Roederer Estate brut. You can also purchase some fresh fruits like pears, apples or figs and some dry fruits like apricots and prunes. You may want to have some bread and crackers as well!
