Learned a ton of very cool information about cheese & left armed with a new knowledge base. However, I don't know how/when I got it in my head that we would have the cheese paired with a variety of wines to learn how to mix and match (also thought there would be a similar variety of foods to try with the cheese) but this was not the case. The main focus is the cheese so... know that going into the experience.

Amazing amount of knowledge was transferred to us as participants. I learned so much about Swiss cheese that I was able to purchase a selection of cheese with more than guesswork. I could construct my own tasting with the knowledge I was armed with and was pleased at what I could share with loved ones about this particular journey. Worth every penny!

We were so lucky to be surprised with a genuine cheese class at Sherly’s Kitchen in Zürich. In an extensive get-together with a small selection of cheese enthusiasts, Sherly being a cheese sommelier, will expand your knowledge on all things cheese: age, culture, category, region, and of course the taste of cheese. In an exciting finale you will get to enjoy and evaluate all the the cheeses, and how they pair with wine. Looking for a sneak preview on what a heaven could be like? Experience the cheese class.

Learned a lot about Swiss cheese types and pairing them with wines, and had fun while doing it! No need to have dinner beforehand - there were plenty of different types of cheese to enjoy. Thanks for the great evening!
