Cheese & Port Pairing with Patrick McGuigan & Niepoort Port

Share

Stilton and Port is a Christmas classic, but there are plenty of other cheeses that work with Portugal’s most famous alcoholic export. Join cheese writer and Academy of Cheese trainer Patrick McGuigan and Faye Welsby of world renowned Port producer Niepoort as they explore cutting edge cheese and port matches for Christmas.

Patrick and Faye will be tasting their way through three cheeses and three different styles of Port as they discuss everything from how to create a show-stopping cheeseboard at Christmas to how Port is made and why it is a perfect pairing for a wide range of cheeses, not just blue.

The live event is free on Zoom. If you would like to join in, Patrick and Faye will be tasting the following cheeses and Ports, or simply taste along with whatever you have at home and see what you enjoy!
