After a decade in national education i decided 3 years ago to become a cheese monger. Passionate by cheese i have learned cheeses process, their stories (each cheese as his own origin), and how to take care of the variety of french of course but also italian, swiss.. products. Meeting cheese producers in many areas in France (Savoie, Normandy, Auvergne) helped me to understand how is working the cheese's economy and how is important to celebrate this heritage.

What a wonderful evening.. this man knows his cheese and pairings. It was so intriguing to discover how the taste of the cheese can be so influenced by the rind or the pairing. Quite fascinating and highly recommended.

Très agréable soirée. Experience que j ai offert à mon mari et que j ai partagé avec plaisir. Thomas est une personne très sympathique qui s amuse à nous faire découvrir des accords originaux. Le temps de déguster est parfait ni trop long ni trop court et nous avons pu échanger librement sur nos gouts et ressentis. Je recommande !

J'ai offert cette expérience à mes parents pour Noël, ils ont vraiment aimé ! Ils n'étaient que deux avec Thomas, ce qui a permis un échange très personnalisé. Merci Thomas !

Soirée très agréable entres collègues de travail, un moment de détente et de culture et nous repartons avec pleins de nouvelles idées et adresses pour déguster et accompagner les fromages. Ne prévoyez pas de restaurant derrière cet atelier très copieux en fromage bien sûr, mais aussi en pains et vins de différentes natures, tous plus originaux les uns que les autres ! Merci Thomas.

This was my first time experiencing a cheese and wine tasting and pairing with my boyfriend and it was the most enjoyable and memorable experience we've had on our trip. Not only was Thomas super friendly and knowledgeable about the cheese and wine, but very caring and accommodative as well. The whole experience was also very interactive as Thomas gave us a cheese flavour chart and a booklet to write down our thoughts on the cheese as well as what flavours we thought the cheese might give off. All in all I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to have a cheese and wine pairing. Thanks Thomas!
