    A little hard to follow. A listing of the cheeses and wines with there number as on the layout at the seminar would be helpful.

    Nice program, but I was very disappointed with the snooty attitude about Americans and rind-eating. As your experts ought to know, a goodly portion of Europeans and European cheese conoisseurs do NOT eat the rind even of cheeses like Brie. It is soley a matter of preference and personal palate, not “education.” Instead of being snide Eurosnobs, maybe they should educate themselves.

    I love redwine such as cabernet sauvignon with cheese like Comté, Tomme or even Roquefort or Munster with some bread. Nothing on earth is better than that!!

    Wine pairing is a new concept for me. Thanks for your insight.
