6:30 PM - 8:00 PM (EDT)
Ask your cool sommelier or bartender friend what they're excited to drink these days. No really, go ahead. We'll wait.
Was amaro on that list? Of course it was. Amaro, meaning "bitter" in Italian, is the new rockstar and shapeshifter of the drinks world (think David Bowie, but booze). It might have saffron, it might have wormwood, or it might have artichoke, or rhubarb, or orange peel. Or all of the above! This delightful elixir is usually a bit bitter, but from there, it totally depends on where it's made and by who. What started out as a way to preserve herbs for wintertime peasant medicine is now the coolest beverage in town. For good reason, too--it's delicious, unique, and there's a whole world of amaro out there to try.
Join us on April 11th for a special Amaro and Cheese class with Alex Delany, beverage geek extraordinaire and assistant web editor at Bon Appetit Magazine. Alex will be leading us through a lineup of his favorite amaros, each specifically paired with a cheese. The cheeses will be paired and led by Christine Clark, Your Cheese Friend, and a Certified Cheese Professional. You’ll leave having tasted through some of the most unique and delicious amaros (and cheeses!) out there, plus will leave with an understanding of what makes these two wonderful things work so well together. You won't be sorry.
