Spring Theme at Fromagination
Celebrating Farmstead Cheeses
To celebrate the long-awaited arrival of spring, Fromagination is taking you across the pond to the British Isles from March 15th through May 1st.
What’s the Craic? We will be starting our tour of the British Isles in beautiful Ireland, just in time to celebrate St Patty’s Day with a slice of Cashel Blue and a pint of Stout!
We then head east to England, for a little tea and cheese. From the rolling hills of Yorkshire to the cliffs of Dover, through the wonderful markets of London, let us marvel you with the sights, smells and flavors that make these small islands so special.
During our escape to the British Isles, we will carry a line of cheese from Neal’s Yard Dairy, in addition to launching an exclusive line of Bellocq teas to pair with cheese, preserves, honey, biscuits. We will offer a afternoon tea and cheese sampling as well as classes on pairing cheese with tea.
