Tasting Tasting….calling all cheese & wine lovers!
We recognise that not everyone can join us on one of our food tours, be it a day or a week long Gourmet Journey through the best of Scotland’s food scene, and that’s why we also offer a range of tasting events that quite literally bring the produce and the producer’s inspiring story to you.
Tasting Scotland was pleased to collaborate with Pieter Rosenthal of Cork & Bottle and provide the guests of 29studios, a Glasgow based visual communications agency (with a fabulous event space!), with a relaxed, fun yet informative evening of Cheese & Wine Tasting. These events are a perfect way for friends,family, colleagues, business clients, ‘discerning’ hens or stags to get together and enjoy an alternative day or evening’s entertainment.
Naturally, the first question on my mind was of course which range of Scottish cheeses would I showcase at the event? The answer came immediately. Keep it local. Keep it
award-winning. Keep it traditional. Just 30 minutes down the motorway from Tasting Scotland’s HQ, just out of Stewarton (‘The Bonnet Toun’ -famous in its day for the production of army regiment supplies) sits Ann Dorward’s Dunlop Dairy. Here Ann produces a range of hard, soft or fresh Cow’s or Goat’s milk cheeses.
The guests of 29studios tasted 5 wines and 5 cheeses and favourites were chosen. Many of our sophisticated guests found that due to the sheer quality of the produce and
wines sampled that it was just too difficult to do anything other than narrow it down to a Top 3 list (of each!). Just a well we had a blind tasting and cheese quiz to decide on one particular winner on the night. Congratulations to Jan Beckers who won a Tasting Scotland Gift Voucher and specially chosen bottle of wine from Cork & Bottle.
Like any good couple when properly matched there is no greater marriage than cheese and wine, but finding that perfect match can be tricky and it can’t be found on an
internet dating site! So, what to do? Well, that’s easy. Join us at our next event on 22nd November 2012 at 7pm in Good Spirits, Bath St. Glasgow for some fantastic ‘Food, Fizz
The event promises to be a popular one and offers a new and exciting dining experience that brings a little insight into ‘what’s on your doorstep’ by way of amazing
Scottish artisan produce, a food & wine tasting and a wine matching masterclass. You will indeed get the chance to meet like minded people (see we told you….you don’t need the internet dating site!).
I know, I know I keep saying it, but if you are not salivating, you are not alive!
