Ristretto Roasters Williams is delighted to be hosting a cheese-coffee pairing on Sunday, May 10 at 1 PM.
Cheese and coffee?
Yeah, that's what we said, until Tami Parr, cheese mistress extraordinaire and founder of the Pacific Northwest Cheese Project suggested she bring over a little aged Gouda, maybe some Valdeon bleu, to see how, or even if, they matched with coffee.
All we can say is: wow! The sparks that flew between the coffees and cheeses, how some were to extraordinarily complementary and others... were not; the sweetness, the smoothness, the creaminess.
We thought you'd like to see for yourselves. Parr will be bringing the cheeses, including Rivers Edge Fresh Chevre, Beemster XO aged Gouda, Uplands Cheese Co. Pleasant Ridge Reserve, Cypress Grove Midnight Moon, and Valdeon (blue). We're providing coffee. You bring your tastebuds and sense of wonder.
Parr will also be bringing copies of her new book, Artisan Cheese of the Pacific Northwest: A Discovery Guide
As with all Sunday Ristretto Roasters events, participation is free.
