Max Faktor - Session 1

Pairing cheese with wine can be daunting. Knowing alot about cheese makes us painfully aware of how much we may not know about something similarly complex - like wine. Plus there is the buttoned-up wine culture that can make it seem harder to bro-out with.  Juggle the endless diversity of cheese styles with the wine varietals that exist and it will make your head spin.  So, where do we begin?
First we get an expert in the name of Max McCalman to visit The Barnyard.  No man has attempted more pairings of cheese with wine than him.  He has made it his Academic.  

Then we throw out any notions of a rule book.  Every palate is a snow flake.  Everybody's food and drink history is unique onto his or her own.
At this event titled Max Faktor Session 1 we will inspire awareness for what you taste, how it makes you feel and what you can do about it moving forward.  We will arm you with descriptors that empower you next time you visit a cheese shop or the wine store.  We will make you better friends with your palate.

This class provides: 
7 cheeses covering a broad spectrum of cheese  
4 wine varietals that we think pair well with Cheese
Guided tasting helping you to discover pairings
