The Battenkill Valley is so rich in artisanal cheesemakers that our annual Cheese Tour has grown almost exponentially each year. Now our friends Christine and Geoff over at the Rice Mansion Inn in Cambridge are presenting a PAIRING event with local chefs and Greg Taylor from Frederick Wildman and Sons, LTD, the world-famous wine importing company. The local chefs will present “bites” using local cheeses and other locally sourced ingredients and Greg will pair them with just the right wine, giving you an “insider’s taste” of the tour before the tour! It’s all happening at the mansion August 22 at 4pm. $30 per person. RSVP at 518-677-5741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
THIS JUST IN: Christine tells me that:
— For those attending the ASA Tour de Farm, also on August 22, and the Pairing- they will donate $5 to the ASA
— For those attending the MfS Concert on August 15 and the Pairing -they will donate $5 to MfS.
The mansion is large and gorgeous but space is still limited, so make the call today!
