“Cheese and wine tasting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great fun cheese and wine tasting. Nicky who took the class was knowledgable and good fun, open to all suggestions we made, someone said the cheese would be good with tequila!!!!

Tasted 6 cheeses and 3 wines. Used and then bought a guillotine, loved it so much. Great value if you love cheese and well run shop/school.

“Great time and great cheese!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Sampled a number of terrific cheeses and learned a lot! Chrissy was a great teacher and my young daughter said it was the highlight of her spring break. We went home with a guillotine - probably will become one of the most used devices on our kitchen!

If you love cheese this is for you! Informative and tasty. Nice way to enjoy a bit of the Netherlands without venturing too far from the capital.
