Tonight we are off to a Nothing says "Joie de Vivre" like French wine and cheese. At our new cheese and wine tasting Manchester event you can enjoy a taste of this heavenly combination.

Rich cheese and wine history
The French take great pride in their rich cheese history and as with wine there is a whole system to protect its authenticity. The AOC guards the traditional methods of cheese-making and the designation of origin is fiercely defended. As a cheese-lover this means that France has a vast variety of delicious cheeses for you to savour. 

What to expect at your Cheese and Wine Tasting Manchester evening:
With such a huge variety of French cheeses to choose from it's difficult to select only six. The choice will be made near the time on the basis of availability. You can be sure that the cheeses will include a wide range of fine examples-pressed, soft and blue. We will showcase the different types of milk used in France, including cow, goat and ewe's milk.

Served with a selection of crackers, bread, nuts, fruit, chutney and garnishes.

Possible Cheese Selections:
Pressed or Hard Cheeses

Comté-delicious cousin of Swiss Gruyére from Eastern France.
Reblochon-a rich cheese with a strong flavour and creamy texture. Made in The Alps.
Cantal-a cheese that is quite close to our Cheddar. From The Auvergne mountains.
Tomme des Pyrénées-a mild cheese with a distinctive black skin.
Soft Cheeses
Brie de Meaux-a mild creamy cheese made to The East of Paris.
Camembert-a strong ripe cheese from Normandy.
Epoisses-a fairly strong rind-washed cheese from The Burgundy region.
Pont l'Evèque-a soft creamy cheese one of the oldest in France.
French goat's cheese., white and creamy with an unmistakenly strong taste.
Blue Cheeses
Roquefort-matured in caves in the mountains of Southern France.
Fourme d'Ambert-a mild blue cheese from The Auvergne with a nutty flavour.
Possible Wine Selections:
Traditionally it has been a given that only red wine goes best with cheese.  We believe that the best wine is the one YOU love. We will offer you a wide range across the six chosen wines including white and sparkling as well as red. Discover the combination you prefer. However we do believe that a local wine will go well with its local cheese.

For example a Gewürztraminer with Brie or a Sauvignon Blanc with goats cheese.

What our Members say:
Going to a music festival was one of my ‘bucket list’ activities to try. Admittedly I had something like Glastonbury in mind but when I saw a local music festival on the calendar I signed up straight away. I had a lot of fun. Thanks for a great time. Julie.

I have never been to a murder mystery party, and wasn’t sure whether it was my cup of tea but I was roped into it by other members. It was a fun evening with plenty of laughs. I would definitely recommend giving it a try. Pete.

 
There are certain things I've always been meaning to give a try but always found an excuse not to. Then Social Circle encouraged me to give photography a try and I thoroughwort enjoyed it. I can't wait until the next one, and, in the meantime, I can't put down my camera. :)
