A guided tasting of Italian Cheese, Charcuterie and Chocolate along with perfectly paired wines. We are excited to host this remote, private, educational tasting in cooperation with Caputo's Market and Deli of Salt Lake. The food will be presented by a distinguished food educator from Caputo's, and the wines presented by our own wine educators.
Italy may appear as one happy culture, but that is far from the truth. Each region identifies with its own culture. From dialect to recipes for the same dish, the specific flavors of Italy vary from one one historical city-state region to the next. We’ll take you on a journey from the toe of the boot and head North, stopping along the way for various cheeses, salumi, and chocolate. No region is the same, just like no cheese is the same. In a country rich with tradition, we’ll explore what makes each region unique and what makes it a valuable addition to the country as a whole.
