The Cheese Has Eyes

Tomorrow is the MN Cheesefest, are you coming? I’ll be there, talking about wine and cheese pairings, along with my pal, Michael Agnew of A Perfect Pint, speaking to beer/wine pairings.  There’s still time to buy a ticket, here!

Pantry Pairings

Doesn’t everyone eat Popcorn, Hummus and/or Pizza for dinner during the week?  (Or, is that just me?) Wine Pairings doesn’t always mean you’re pairing to the best made recipes or elaborate ingredients.  Sometimes selecting the right wine just means you’re pairing to how you feel, or what’s left over in the fridge on a Tuesday…

  • Leslee and Michael,
    I just wanted to thank you both for the spectacular evening you hosted for our group. My wife and I and our guests—and everyone we talked to—had a wonderful time.
    I have never learned so much about beer and wine, glasses, their history and regions, and “pairing” the right way. You were both easy to listen to and are amazingly good at what you do. I’m impressed.
    Thanks, again, for your time and I’m sure our paths will cross again in the future!
