VIP Truffle Feast, Cheese and Wine Event at The Cheese Boutique- April 18th
April is a perfect time for celebrating the finest cheeses, wines, and the famed winter black truffle - the Périgord noir! The birthstone for April is the diamond. Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, the 18th century French gourmand, once referred to Périgord truffles as the “diamonds of the kitchen,” and for centuries forward, food industry experts still agree.
On April 18th, we invite you to a private VIP culinary event at the infamous and iconic Toronto gourmet shop, The Cheese Boutique for a fun and celebratory feast to highlight the black truffle with perfectly paired dishes, wines, and cocktails. The doors will open at 7PM and you will be welcomed by your hosts, Root44 Founder, 5th Generation Truffle Specialist and Culinary Expert Wanda Srdoc and renowned Cheese Master, Author, and Food Network Celebrity, Afrim Pristine. Over the course of the evening you will experience 5 decadent roaming food stations, each showcasing the exquisite black truffle with perfectly paired wines and cocktails handpicked by the highly respected industry expert, Franco Stalteri, owner of Charlie Burgers. This is an event not to be missed! We can’t wait to celebrate the finest truffles, cheeses, gourmet dishes and wines with you.
Your VIP experience will also include:
- A private tour with Afrim Pristine in the Cheese Boutique's Million Dollar Cheese Cave.
