March 11, The Joy of Cheese launches a new series, The Stella Seven, at Stella, 213 Front Street. The venue is near the South St. Seaport, a five minute walk from the Fulton St/B'way Nassau stop of the A, C, J, M, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. The tastings will take place in a separate salon room accessible via the bar.
Our first tasting there will focus on cheeses of Spain and Portugal. As part of the $40 admission ($45 at the door), there will be sample sizes of four absurdly good Iberian wines served and discussed by Peter Jamros from Regal Wines. Of course in addition to the seven cheeses, there will also be two mystery cheeses, fruit, dark chocolate, and of course program notes.
