We could not be more excited to introduce Cured’s Education classes, all led by our manager and Certified Cheese Professional Jessica Beer. Classes are held from 6:30-8 pm at Cured West and take you on a culinary journey through the history, make process, and nuances of the various cheeses. Classes will all cost $55 per person and will include a flight of cheeses, more than a few sips of wine, and some serious education to boot.
Space is limited so give us a call to reserve your spot today!!
Monday June 12: Spring Cheeses. An exploration of Fresh, Aged and Aged Fresh. What better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring than to taste some of the best of what the season has to offer. One sure sign that Spring has truly sprung is the arrival of massive amounts of tiny fresh sheep and goat’s milk cheeses. This style of cheese is particular delightful during the spring months when the herds have access to the most lovely and diverse pasture. These soft, high moisture cheeses have some of the shortest lives in cheese which is why they have such a small window of availability. Come join us for a true taste of seasonality.
Monday July 17: French Cheeses. Every year, for the month of July while cyclists race through the French countryside in the Tour de France, we celebrate from here in Colorado by bringing in some of the best cheese that France has to offer. This special class will feature some truly extraordianary and unique French cheeses while delving into French cheese history. Good wine will also be a no brainer!
Monday August 14: Italian Cheeses. Italy holds a special spot in the heart of turophiles as the only country that can give France a run for its money in terms of giving the world some cheeses that we would be truly lost without. From Parmigiano to Gorgonzola, we will taste through some of the best that Italy has to offer, while discussing the important role that cheese plays in Italian food culture.
