Academy of Cheese presents: tipsy cheeses

Share

Intermediate wine tasting:

As we move closer to the festive season, The Academy of Cheese return to WSET School London to offer up a selection of festively tipsy cheeses, paired with their accompanying wines.

Steeping cheese in beer or wine has a long history, with Trappist monk recipes dating back to the Middle Ages. Join food journalist and cheese writer Patrick McGuigan to discover cheeses whose ‘affinage’ (ageing) processes incorporate wines, wine must, ciders and brandies.

Patrick will introduce you to the Academy of Cheese’s ‘Make, Post-Make’ classification of cheese whilst tasting six delightfully tipsy cheeses along with accompanying wines.

About Patrick McGuigan:

Patrick is a Brighton-based freelance food journalist and cheese writer, who contributes regularly to titles including The Telegraph, The Financial Times, Harrods Magazine and Restaurant, among many others.

As one of the country’s leading cheese writers and communicators, Patrick has interviewed many of the world’s best cheesemakers, affineurs and mongers, writing extensively on the subject for the Telegraph, among others, and appearing on BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme.

He hosts regular talks and tastings for the public, trade and press, and is a senior judge at the World Cheese Awards and the Cheesemonger of the Year award. He also runs training courses at the School of Fine Food and has studied cheese at the School of Artisan Food, the Cheese Guild and the Academy of Cheese.

Sample cheeses and their pairings:

Murcia al Vino, with Murcia Monastrell
Somerset cider brandy-washed sheep’s milk cheese, with Somerset Cider
Ubriaco cheese, matured with Torcolato white grape must, with Torcolato
