Festive cheese & wine event with Patrick McGuigan

  Wednesday 18 Dec 2019

  7:00 pm  - 9:00 pm

Learn new ways with the classic Christmas pairing in this cheese and wine workshop – led by top food writer Patrick McGuigan. We have added another date for festive cheese fun after Patrick’s first event sold out in only a few days.

In this hands-on class, Patrick will show you the trick behind a gorgeous and gooey truffled Camembert, and you will create a festive cranberry and hazelnut dukka to accompany a delicious baked Vacherin. You will taste some of Patrick’s favourite festive cheeses, going beyond the traditional stilton, and learn how to transform hot mince pies with a cheesy addition.

You will taste five cheeses in total, and alongside each dish we will offer an accompanying drink.

This is great seasonal prep for impressing your guests this Christmas – or maybe just for readying yourself for a little indulgence by the fireside this holiday.

Patrick McGuigan is a Brighton-based food journalist, who writes for The Telegraph and runs the London Cheese Project Festival. He is also the co-founder of Brighton’s OctoberBest restaurant festival.
