The Cheese Challenge™
What's it all about?
A tasting challenge with a slice of humour.
After an introduction to cheesemaking, Francis leads your guests on a short tour of their senses, enabling them to understand how to detect milk types, quality, age and method of maturation in artisan cheese. As is customary at Taste of the Vine events (though not obligatory), a challenge ensues, with guests competing with their new-found skills for prizes.
Wines will be selected to accompany the cheese rounds.
As a sideline to Taste of the Vine, Francis is starting a cheese making company with his wife Pam. Due for release late 2016, the cheese is to be a washed rind cow’s milk cheese. Google, 'Gimblett Cheese' for more info.
This format is suited to client events, networking, press launches and conferences.
Your event can be run seated, with a high level of interaction, or from stalls where the tasting is a feature of the event. Your hosts’ material will be prepared with your audience in mind, be they seasoned tasters with a thirst for information or a group with a hunger for humour.
The format can be tailored to suit objective-driven team building.
We start with your desired outcome and then create a structure that will assist increased communication within your group.
