On July 18th, 2011 Murray's Cheese in NYC hosted "Harmony of Wine and Cheese with Hudson-Chatham Winery."

"While it's difficult to imagine not enjoying a sip of wine with a hunk of your favorite cheese, certain combinations will particularly titillate your tongue and make your soul sing. Join us as we welcome vintners Dominique and Carlo DeVito Hudson-Chatham Winery, whose award winning wines will be paired with a selection of our cave aged cheeses by Louise Geller, Murray’s Director of Mail Order. Learn what cheese types best match these wines and get insider tips on how to find the right match on your own. Join us for a pairing session to explicate the essential fundamentals of wine and cheese harmony," read Murray's website.

Instructors Dominique and Carlo DeVito and Sascha Ingram lead the class.

Sascha Ingram is the Education and Events Coordinator at Murray's Cheese. Sascha Ingram just can't stop talking about cheese. After studying English and working in education, Sascha followed her nose (and her tastebuds!) to Forward Foods, a cheese and specialty foods shop in her native Oklahoma, where she spent the next few years turning on her fellow Okies to the wonders of Epoisses and Uplands Cheese Company Pleasant Ridge Reserve. After she had nearly memorized The Murray's Cheese Handbook, she tried her hand at the Murray's counter, eventually finding her way into the classroom, where you might catch her introducing the basics in Cheese 101, waxing poetic on the origins of cheese in Cheese U Boot Camp, or leading you through the ins and outs of affinage in Mystery of the Caves.

The class was a lot of fun, and we hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did! Special thanks to Sascha!
