‘Halloumi Cheese from Cyprus’

I love cheese; I especially love stinky, stinky cheese. In fact, I love stinky cheese so much, on my last trip to Paris I specifically learned the phrase “Je veux votre fromage qui pue” (I want your stinky cheese) so that I could ask Parisan cheese mongers for their more odorous varieties.
Going to Paris to pick up some cheese, however, is not always the most cost-effective or convenient method. For those constrained to more local merchants, Cheesetique in Alexandria has you covered. Join Jill Erber on March 27th and 28th and April 3rd and 4th at 7:00pm to learn why stinky cheeses are so darn pungent and how to best select, serve and pair these “special” creations.
Lasting about an hour, and costing only $35, the class will give participants the opportunity to smell and taste ten cheeses and pair them with two perfect wines. Register here.
Cheesetique is located at 2411 Mt. Vernon Ave, Alexandria, VA. They can be reached via phone at 703-706-5300.
