What you'll do

Become a certified Cheese Geek in a fun, informative two-hour session to discover the wonderful world of French cheeses.

Let's meet in front of La Cheese Room, our tasting room in the hip Belleville neighborhood. We’ll start with a handful of explorative exercises using our five senses to get to know each other around our wooden farm table. Then, we’ll take you on a Tour de France through the best of cheese-producing regions, tasting six artisanal cheeses paired with an eclectic collection of beverages along with delicious condiments: jams and jellies, honey and even candied peppers.

You'll learn a lot with our experts: from the making of cheese to how they are aged, stored and enjoyed as well as how to cut, serve and buy France's favorite food group. You'll also receive your own Cheese Geek Tasting Book with notes and lots fun facts to share with your cheese-loving friends :)

If you're already a cheese lover or would like to expand your palette, I highly recommend this class. Fabrice makes you feel welcome as he introduces the class to cheeses that you may or may not have heard of as well as provides wines and spreads to try that would complement the cheeses. The class definitely broadened my knowledge on cheese and how the French includes them in their lives. Thank you Fabrice! Elizabeth

I am a culinary professional who gives classes and I can honestly say this was a GREAT class. Perfect cheeses to taste paired with very thoughtful beverage selections. The class was very interactive with plenty of time to interact about our experience with each cheese. Great to be in the company of passionate professionals.

Despite going into the class knowing I did not like softer "stinky" cheeses, Fabrice helped me understand how to appreciate good cheese. His class was fun and informative. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys cheese to take this class.... plus there's wine.

A really great experience for anyone looking to learn a bit about cheese while have a lovely evening meeting new friends and enjoying some wine. We discovered a new cheese that we love and will always shop for going forward, and really felt like we got a good understanding of different cheese types being produced in France. Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend!

Really enjoyed the tasting with Fabrice! He walked us through how to taste cheeses step by step and gave us a cheese tasting book to take our notes in. The wine pairing went very nicely with each cheese and set this experience apart from others that were offered. My group had a fun time with all guests because Fabrice made everyone feel comfortable and made the experience interactive. Would definitely recommend this for more than just your average cheese tasting!
