Cheese Tasting at Venissimo in LB


Venissimo Cheese Shop in Belmont Shore is offering a $15 tasting (SEE PAYMENT INFO BELOW) for our group on Saturday, January 5th at 6:15pm. Space is limited to 15 people. They are offering this after their regular hours, so we will have the entire shop to ourselves. We are still deciding on the theme, but I will announce it the week before the tasting.


I have been to several tasting at Venissimo and stop by regularly for different or hard to find cheeses. The staff is absolutely wonderful, and the shop has all kinds of cheese-related accoutrements. I personally am addicted to the candied walnuts and always try to grab a pretzel loaf before I leave.


As a warning, parking in Belmont can be tough. Venissimo is at the end of the street, so it tends to have more parking than some other establishments. Either way, you may want to allocate a little extra time for parking. It is BYOB, so feel free to bring your favorite wine, beer, or non-alcoholic drink. I hope you can join us!



Everyone will be placed on the waiting list until they pay the $15. You can pay via paypal ([masked]), in person (I will be at the Tea Tasting and Dim Sum events), or via mail (please contact me directly for mailing address). Once I receive your payment, you will be moved up to the “Yes” RSVP. A refund (net of processing fee if using Paypal) will be available if you cancel before Saturday, December 29th. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

    Sounds wonderful but very hard to commit so far in advance. But I will be visiting them soon. Thanks for sharing.

    There will be breads and crackers to buy if you are wanting something in addition to the cheese. It is pretty much just the cheese (plus anything to bring to drink). If people want to, there are tons of places in walking distance to go for dinner after.

    Please says the space is limited to 15 but the wait list started and only 6 people are signed up. Is there a glitch in the system? I would like to go if there is still room. . .

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
