We provide on- and off-site artisan cheese catering and education, and, if you like, we can combine the two. One evening is all we need to take you from cheese plebe to fromage snob. If you’d rather have less talk and more nosh, our cornucopia of cheese can satiate a party of ten to a crowd of hundreds. Either way, we promise an enriching cheese experience.
You’ve team-built, you’ve trust-fallen, you’ve even danced with your coworkers in public. What’s next? How about a class on the cheeses of Spain, or perhaps something closer to home like the cheese and wine Pacific Northwest? You and your team can off-site at the School or we can come to you, at the location of your choice. You’ll taste delicious cheese, you’ll drink fabulous wine, (and you won’t have to watch Harold from HR do the “the shopping cart”…at least for now.)
Give even your most jaded friends something to talk about at parties to come. Have us set up and tend a cheese bar — fully stocked with top shelf artisan cheeses, breads, and fruit — at your next soiree. We work with groups and spaces of all sizes. Or, have your party at our historic Powell Street loft. The space accommodates a maximum of 75. And if you’d like, we will tutor your tasters on the real difference between Gruyere and Comte.
Need an amazing centerpiece for your wedding, birthday party or other special event? We’ll create a “cake”made entirely of wheels of delicious cheese. Tell us more about your event, your budget and your cheese preferences and we’ll work with you to create something both structurally sound and pleasing to the palate.
We have all been to an otherwise beautiful wedding only to be greeted at the reception by commercial Brie, cubed orange and yellow cheddar, and the most dreaded cheese product of them all: the cheese log. Don’t inflict bad cheese on your family and friends! Let us build an exceptional centerpiece instead: delicious and beautiful artisan cheeses, freshly baked breads, and handmade accompaniments. We wouldn’t dream of cubing anything.
From a ploughman’s lunch to extraordinary cheese and charcuterie displays to plated cheese service, we cater weddings, birthdays, corporate events, and other occasions that call for great cheese.
