Falling Leaves, Hard Cider

Foster and Dobbs, our favorite cheese shop on NE 15th, is having a Hard Cider and Cheese class at the store, appropriately enough, the day before Halloween. They're featuring the fellows from Wandering Aengus Ciderworks, and will be tasting the fruit their cider is made from as well as the delicious product it becomes.

The ciders will be paired with some newly arrived American Farmstead cheeses along with some traditional cider and cheese pairings from Asturias, Spain. If it's like the previous cheese tasting I went to, we'll be seated around the large farm table and there will be lots of laughter and conversation in addition to the official discussion. What a great way to spend a cool fall evening!

Details: Hard Cider and Cheese Class, Oct. 30, 7:15 pm at Foster & Dobbs Authentic Foods, 2518 NE 15th Ave.; Phone 503-284-1157 for reservations. Class size is limited and the classes fill quickly. Participants receive a 10% discount on purchases that evening.

I wasn't at the event, but Luan said they did make it and are going to experiment with different ciders. I'm definitely going to try it here, too!
