Join Ken in his efforts to learn more about which cheeses go with which wines.
We are heading off to encounter the London CHEESE and WINE FESTIVAL (free entry) which is a celebration of everything cheesy and grapey. It promises to be a major attraction for connoisseurs of fine wine and cheeses.It provides the perfect opportunity to learn more about cheese and wine matching, and how to include both into a variety of sweet and savoury foods.
The encounter will include browsing through market stalls featuring cheeses from around the UK and the world, and wine stalls will also be selling bottles from a variety of different countries and regions. Tutored tastings and talks on the wine and cheese making processes will take place at various times throughout the event.
Members can bring guests but please note that there is a £2 fee for each guest attending, payable on the evening.
AFTERPARTY: Afterwards, at around 5pm (meet again at the Barclays Bikes (Boris Bikes) stand which is underneath the flagpoles at the side of the festival) as we heading off for some food and drinks at Thai Silk Bar & Restaurant (food is entirely optional after all that cheese you were sampling), which is a cool bar with a mediterranean feel just 10 minutes walk away from South Bank. Plus Happy Hour drinks at only £2.50 each!! Please sign up separately for the afterparty if you intend to come, even if you are not intending to eat. We will be joined by even more members from 8.30pm onwards as the afterparty runs right through the evening until 12pm, click here to RSVP .
Also, if you think you might want to eat at the Thai Silk at our special deal of only £10 for 2 courses, it is even more important that you sign up separately for that event, click here to RSVP . It helps to manage the numbers in the restaurant part of the Thai Silk.
