"I just wanted to say thank you. Our first cheese class was amazing; I am absolutely hooked. We will definitely be back for more. It was one of the most unique and fun things I have done in this town." - Kristy Owen, 365 Things to do in Austin
Our tastings have been listed as one of the Top 25 Things to do In Austin (by 365thingsaustin.com in 2015), 101 Things to Do in Austin when the Temperature is over 100 degrees (by Austin Chronicle in 2014), and lauded by others, including Zagat Austin. We truly love talking cheese; it's one of the best aspects of our jobs! Come let our cheesemongers guide you through an evening sharing cheese stories, histories, and lots of cheese tastings. Most folks start with our Cheese 101 class, which has a different lineup of cheeses each time. At most classes we'll bring accompaniments like bread, olives, and nuts, as well as other pairings like preserves, chocolates, and more. You can elect to participate in our wine or beer pairings with your separate purchase through our Cheese Shop prior to the event. At the end of the class, we'll happily fresh-cut any cheese or other item sampled that evening for your purchase so you can recreate the evening at home with your friends.
We host all of our cheese classes and private events & tastings in our Cheese House located directly across the street from the Cheese Shop. The Cheese House has been home to many great Hyde Park businesses and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. The history of the house lives on in the wood flooring and ceiling, the architecture, and the original fireplace mantel. We find the Cheese House to be the perfect rustic, yet elegant backdrop for our tastings and events. The Cheese House is located at 500 Park Boulevard. Access the Cheese House parking lot off of Duval Street just north of the house.
