In this fun, hands on, and interactive cheese and charcuterie class you can get the low down on everything you need to know about building the perfect board!

What are the main cheese groups? What meats pair well together? What vegetables, fruits, nuts, preserves, pates, and breads should you use? How do Chefs combine flavor profiles to achieve perfection? All of these questions and more will be answered in this amazing class that will teach you how to take your board game to the next level.

Follow along as Chef John teaches you a thing or two about charcuterie, cheese, pairing with accoutrements such as jam, honey, mustard, breads, and wine. And of course making it all look pretty!Wine tasting included! Every couple will go home with their own wood charcuterie board to use over and over again! Price is for two adults.
