Fromage face-off: Canada’s cheeses vs. the world’s…and wines to go with them

Sunday, March 27, 2011, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Beckta Dining and Wine, 226 Nepean Street

Canadian cheesemakers have come a long way in a short time. But are they there yet? Help us decide. And enjoy some delightful matching wines along the way.

Join Guild co-founder and cheese enthusiast J. Phillip Nicholson and Beckta Dining and Wine’s Maitre d’Fromage, Steve Whittaker, as they explore how Canadian artisanal cheeses stack up against some of the most stunning and storied products of the world. Along the way, learn about the production and classification of cheeses and their pairing with wines.

Five flights, each featuring a superb Canadian cheese lined up against a worthy world counterpart, and each pair carefully matched with a delightful wine selected by our friendly and knowledgeable hosts. Not a full meal, but filling, so at most have a bowl of soup before the event.

This event has been generously sponsored and subsidized by Phil Nicholson and Steve Beckta to help raise scholarship funds.
