On November 4th we hosted a Cheeseboard Styling Workshop at Woo de La Kitchen in Hershey. It was a fabulous evening of wine tasting, cheese sampling and a fantastic education by Chef Jordan on how to style a perfect cheeseboard. Upon arrival guests were greeted with a glass of wine from Cassel Vineyards and a fantastic spread of hors d'oeuvres prepared by Woo de La Kitchen. Once the guests had a chance to mingle they gathered around the table for the workshop. Chef Jordan gave a hands on lesson in styling as he constructed a beautiful cheeseboard for entertaining. As he assembled the board, Jordan taught our guests valuable tips on selecting cheeses, pairing them with wines and other party foods and how to save money by shopping in the right places. Guests had the opportunity to try different cheeses and wines to decide what might go well together. At the end of the workshop the guests assembled their own mini cheeseboards to enjoy at home.
This workshop was such a hit that I fully expect to repeat it in the new year. Keep and eye on the event calendar for a list of what's coming up!
