August 8: Honey & Cheese at Antonelli's Cheese Shop

"Cheese and Honey" classes are a sweet way to spend an evening. We guide you through each style of cheese and taste specific examples (both pasteurized and unpasteurized), accompanied by our amazing selection of single varietal honeys, and olives, nuts, and Easy Tiger bread.

Note: Doors open at 6:15pm and the event starts at 6:30pm. You may choose to arrive early and separately purchase our wine or beer pairings from the Cheese Shop prior to the class the day of the event. Should you choose to bring your own wine or beer, there is a $4 set-up fee. As the tasting wraps up around 8pm, we'll give you and your guests time to mingle and enjoy the Cheese House, while we cut-to-order any cheese from the class that you'd like to purchase so you can re-create the tasting at home. Personal delivery of cheese directly to your chair. Does it get any better than that?

Price: $60

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at Antoinelli's Cheese
