The Northeast's best cheese and dairy are coming to the Northeast’s best venue
The 4th annual Great Northeast Cheese Fest takes place Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 at Flushing Town Hall. The region’s very best artisanal creameries will showcase more than 75 exquisite artisanal cheeses from nutty sheep's milk tommes and sharp Cheddars to luscious triple cremes and tangy goat cheeses.
These regional specialties will be joined by select international cheeses. Top New York City chefs, including, Hugue Dufour of M. Wells Steakhouse (Long Island City) and Alfonso Zhicay of Queens' very own Casa del Chef Bistro (Woodside) will prepare delectable dishes using the cheeses.
Fine libations, including beer, wine, and cider will be paired with all the glorious cheese and dairy offerings. Rodrigo Duarte’s exquisite Portuguese charcuterie will also be featured.
Here's what one of previous year's guests had to say:
"Last night's event was a revelation! Finding great cheeses will be my next gustatory quest. This was my first time sampling raw milk cheese (goat & cow) and I was totally blown away! There was so much depth of flavor in all that I sampled, I was transported to both farm and barn by the rich smells and the funky barnyard flavors."
Guests will have an opportunity to learn about the cheeses from both mongers and makers as well industry experts.
As part of the festivities at this year’s Great Northeast Cheese Fest, there will be a People's Choice Awards where attendees will be able to vote for their favorite fromage!
All-inclusive $65 tickets entitle guests to unlimited cheese sampling and beverage pairings plus tastings from the chefs.
Additionally, there will be a limited amount of first-come, first-serve $120 VIP tickets sold, which will allow exclusive access to special earlier culinary demonstrations and discussions about cheeses from acclaimed cheese experts. VIP guests will also have early access to the rest of the festival.
