Cheesewhizzes Launch Party

Filed under: Uncategorized — Helen Jane @ 6:22 pm

Cheesewhizzes is celebrating the Launch of Culture Magazine – a new magazine about what else…CHEESE!

And to celebrate the launch of such a fabulous magazine we are taking you straight to the green isle of Ireland, where cheese is taken quite seriously by small artisinal farmers.

This time we are doing things a little differently…you don’t need to bring cheese, you don’t need to bring a beverage, you don’t have to bring anything but your fabulous self… and $20.

For $20 at the door you will recieve:
1. 4-5 Irish cheeses to taste
2. 2 tokens for Guiness beer
3. A mini-seminar by resident cheese experts Lassa and Ricardo

So grab your favorite leprachaun and come on down to Oxbow…the resident chef will also be preparing some Irish specialties like Lamb Stew and you have the chance to save 25% off of subscriptions to Culture magazine (an offer for this day only!)

Our friend Lassa at the Oxbow Cheese Merchant has published a magazine ALL ABOUT CHEESE.

Called, Culture, its all about the farms, flavors and people that make artisinal cheese all over the world.

(They even design a special cheese plate per issue.)

Go get it, yo.

Cheesewhizzes USA

Filed under: Uncategorized — Helen Jane @ 3:54 pm

Cheesewhizzes USA is today, Saturday, November 15th at 6:30pm at Acme Fine Wines in St. Helena.

Bring a cheese from our amazing country and a wine that pairs with this cheese. I’m pairing mine geographically, but you can pair yours however the heck you want.

Map: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=acme+fine+wines+st.+helena,+ca&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=58.467737,80.507812&ie=UTF8&z=16&iwloc=A

There will *not* be food served at this Cheesewhizzes (other than cheese), so you may want to have a bite before you arrive.
(The better to taste that fine American wine with.)

The event will be from 6:30 – 9:30pm, and as always, we’ll be gentle to the good neighbors as we arrive and leave.

Can’t wait to see you this Saturday!
