Cheese and Wine Tasting in Paris

For the last 18 years I've explored French food, culture, wine and cheese through this blog. Now heading in an exciting and natural new direction, as of spring 2023, I will be offering an in-person experience devoted to tasting and appreciating French cheese.

My goal is to share my deep passion for the subject and to demystify the delicious, often aromatic, sometimes intimidating world of fromage!

The tasting includes:
  • A comfortably seated, 2½-3 hour cheese and wine workshop in a wine shop

  • 10-12 French cheeses paired with 4-5 wines (and/or possible other drinks)

  • A fun, sensory and educational experience

You will go away with:

  • A deeper understanding of cheese

  • Confidence in purchasing, serving and slicing

  • Cheese and wine pairing insight and know-how

  • A new love for cheese, including their varied flavors, aromas and textures

The small group format, maximum 8 people, which includes all the cheese, bread, accompaniments and drinks, is €130 per person (please see note).
They will be offered most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at noon.

To book a tasting, or for any questions you may have, please contact me at louloufrance@gmail.com

This experience can be customized for private groups, just ask!

Note: Please send an email to discuss a private tasting if you would like to include children under 14 years old

My French Cheese Workshops Are Now Online!

If you've read this blog for any time now, you know how much I love cheese! And after weeks of working out a new (for me) way to share this great passion with you, I've finally done it.

Three virtual workshops, which I've entitled, French Cheese Fundamentals, are online and available on Eventbrite. They've been up for a few days, but I've haven't had the chance to share them here yet.

Part One is the Basics, a Cheese 101 that covers history, terminology, the French cheese families, seasonality - it's a lot of practical, nerdy information.

Part Two is all about creating Cheese Boards. You'll learn about tasting, serving, slicing, shopping and building beautiful boards.

Part Three is about Pairing cheese with wine, other beverages and food. Even though there are no hard and fast rules, there is plenty of information to learn about creating delicious flavor marriages. 

I'm keeping the numbers limited to just 15 screens for a more personal experience, however I will continue to add the workshops to the calendar on a rotating basis, so if you miss one, it will be offered again in a few weeks time. 

The Basics has already sold out for December (yay!), but there is another one being offered in mid-January, and there is still space available on Cheese Boards this month. Pairing Cheese is being offered for the first time in early January. 

I hope to see you there and if you have any questions, please contact me at: louloufrance@gmail.com

Coming Soon - My Virtual French Cheese Workshops

As I mentioned in September, I teamed up with Context Conversations and presented an online French cheese tasting seminar that was offered a few more times over the last few months. And more dates have been added in December and January.

I was also invited by La Cuisine Paris to do a live French fromage workshop in November, with another one coming up in mid-December.

All of this got me thinking that it would be fun to create some more comprehensive online workshops of my own, so that's exactly what I did!

For the moment I've got three finished that I'm going to launch shortly (all of the calendar app stuff and payment app stuff is a bit of a learning curve), so watch this space and I hope to share all of my French cheese knowledge and passion with you very soon.
