Cheese makes the world go round. If you disagree, then you shouldn’t be reading this. See, Fairfield Cheese Company (see our post) has created a load of cheesy goodness in store for you this fall. If you haven’t stopped by their awesome store in Fairfield, now’s a great time. See, they’ve just been named the winners of the 2012 Best Cheese Selection by Best of Connecticut. But, that’s not all. They are also featured in Food & Wine Magazine as one of the top 5 cheese shops in the entire country by Laura Werlin. As if this isn’t enough, they’ve got an amazing variety of fun events happening. So, check ‘um out for the first time or come back again to fall back in love with cheese:
#FF #cheese #byob #heaven Yup, it’s everything great about the world, every single Friday this fall from 5-8 pm. Fromage Friday begins September 7 and will cost just $10. In return, you’ll get to nom away on lots of gourmet cheese. They will also provide empty glasses for you. For what, you ask? For your wine or beer, duh! Let’s sweeten the deal a bit: get your liquid goodness next door at Harry’s, tell them you’re a part of Fromage Friday and get a 10% discount. Now, you can’t pull this on Swiss Cheese Saturday, Stracchino Sunday, Mascarpone Monday, or Turophile (means cheese lover, we looked it up and stuff) Tuesday. This deal is only live during Fromage Friday, punks.
Cheese Classes on Tuesdays
If school was this fun, so many people wouldn’t complain and moan about the teachers, the tests, and how unfair everything is. Here at Fairfield Cheese Company it’s cool to be in school. Check them out Tuesdays during the fall from 7-9 for some learnin’. Be sure to call (203) 292-8194 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make your reservations because you’re not the only person who loves cheese.
Here’s the info from their page:

In August the American Cheese Society holds its annual conference and competition where hundreds of American-made cheeses go head to head to determine which ones will be deemed the best of the best in their specific categories.

We’ll taste some of the winners and discuss the revolution in American made cheeses. $45.00

Fondue is back big time, and what better way to get together with friends and family on a cold autumn night?

We’ll have lots of delicious dipping accompaniments and a couple of wine selections to add to the fabulous fondue fun $45.00
