The Broadway: Wine and Cheese Event 2/28
- Julia Crowley, EDN
I love cheese. Blue Cheese, Manchego, Brie, Chevre, Fontina, Asiago, Gouda-you name it, I love it. So, when I heard that The Broadway was going to dedicate the last Tuesday of each month to cheese and wine pairing events, I got super excited, and for good reason.
A few weeks ago, while spending time with friends at The Broadway wine bar in Eugene, we shared a cheese and meat plate that was absolutely stellar. Catie Jenkins, who is also known as the Cheese Monger, has been personally selecting the cheeses at The Broadway for over a year now, and her cheese-picking abilities are truly impressive.
On our plate, we had five cheeses: Great Hill Blue was a blue cheese from Massachusettes, O’Banon from Indiana was a goats milk cheese wrapped in chestnut leaves and soaked in bourbon, MouCo Colorouge was a soft ripened cow’s milk cheese from Colorado, the Pecorino Toscano Staginato was an aged sheep’s milk cheese from Italy and the aged Gouda was from Holland. In addition to the cheese, there was some smoked salmon, Soppresata salami, grapes, sliced apples, almonds, olives and bread.
Each last Tuesday of the month will have a theme, and for $20 per person, there will be five cheese and wine pairings.
Since February 28 is the last Tuesday in February, The Broadway will be having their first wine and cheese pairing event from 6-8 pm. The theme this month is Catie’s Favorites, and I can’t wait to to nibble the cheeses and sip the wines Catie Jenkins hand selects for this months wine and cheese affair.
Later this week, look for an article on which cheeses and wines were experienced at The Broadway on WineJulia.com.
