Join La Femme Du Fromage as we celebrate the grand opening of our new specialty cheese store with special guest Max McCalman to co-host the first event. The evening event will be a cheese and wine paring class on Friday November 8th, 6:30-8:30pm. Complementary sparkling wine will be offered for the meet and greet reception. Class will begin at 7:00 sharp. There will be a book signing afterwards as well as lots of wine and cheese for sale.
Max McCalman is a legend in the world of artisan cheese, being America's first restaurant-based Maître Fromager among other accolades. His work takes him across North America and Europe exploring dairies and farms that contribute to artisanal cheese production, as well as production consultation and serving as a judge in competitions worldwide. He has also been conferred the title of Garde et Jure as designated by France's Guilde des Fromagers.
It is an honor to have Max coming to Orlando specifically for this special event. Come out and support your local cheese shop in our new space at East End Market!
