Spring Cheese and Wine

The Cheese School of San Francisco
Thursday, May 14, 2015
6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

I can’t do any better than the Cheese School’s description of this class, so once again, with blatant plagiarism, here goes: “Come May, foodie hearts’ swoon at the first sights and flavors of Spring. Few of springtime’s pleasures are greeted with as much joy as the wobbly legs and little baa’s of baby goats and lambs. Babies on the farm means milk for cheesemakers. Author and cheese expert Laura Werlin will lead you in a tasting of the first cheeses of the year. She’ll pair her finds with light, lovely wines perfect to celebrate the season.”

Food and Wine Classic at Aspen

Aspen, Colorado
Friday, June 19, 2015 to Sunday, June 21, 2015

Taking place in one of the country’s most stunning locations, the 33rd annual Food & Wine Classic at Aspen will bring just as many bells, whistles, and famous chefs as every year before.
 This year, I will be presenting two seminars:

On Friday (and again on Saturday), I’ll be teaming up with Food and Wine’s resident wine expert and senior wine editor, Megan Krigbaum, to present Spanish cheeses, Spanish wines. Megan tastes hundreds of wines a month, just as I do cheeses, so we’ve picked our favorites from the Iberian peninsula areas to present for this very special seminar. Don’t forget your passport!

 Friday, June 19th, 3:45 – 4:30p and Saturday, June 20th, 3:45 – 4:30p.

On my own, I’ll be leading one of the most happy-making seminars of any kind: American Cheeses and American Wines. I’ve selected far-flung and absolutely delicious American cheeses – ones most people probably haven’t heard of because they’re only sold regionally – and I’m bringing in incredibly special American (and small-production) wines to go with them. Friday, June 19th, 10 – 10:45, Saturday, June 20th, 10 - 10:45

Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta

Santa Fe, New Mexico
Wednesday, September 23, 2015 to Sunday, September 27, 2015

Wine? Chile? Santa Fe? How much more is there to say about this spectacular event? This unique celebration of all that's good in life is celebrating its 25th year, and not surprisingly, with each year, the event gets more popular. This will be my eleventh year as a presenter, and even though there's no such saying, "elevent times is the charm," the fact is, I love this event so much that, well, I keep thinking practice will make perfect. The content of my seminars haven’t hasn’t been decided yet, but as soon they are, you’ll be among the first to know. Stay tuned.
