Cheese + Spice Experience at World Spice Merchants


Enjoy a world of flavor and plan your New Year's party menu at this cozy event from Gilbert's Cheese Experience: a cheese-pairing pop-up that connects consumers with local producers. Led by Brian Gilbert, head cheesemonger at Beecher's Handmade Cheese, and culinary storyteller Holly Regan, you'll learn how your food and drinks are made, meet the people who make them and go on an interactive tasting journey.

We are thrilled to team up with World Spice Merchants: Seattle's premiere purveyor of spices, herbs and teas. Located in Pike Place Market, the epicenter of Seattle's food culture, we're bringing you an evening of unique snacks and pairings from every corner of the globe: from Asia and the Middle East to right here at home. Breathe in the tantalizing aromas of World Spice Merchants' unique blends, and savor appetizers, condiments and oils steeped in exotic flavors from their pantry.

This sensory-delighting evening will take your party food to the next level, as we combine these culinary treasures with carefully curated artisan cheeses. We'll also teach you how cheese is made; learn how World Spice Merchants chooses and creates their spices and blends; and discover how to do a proper tasting. This is a fun, interactive time where you can share your experience with your hosts and other guests.

Each ticket includes four curated pairings of artisan cheeses and spice-infused appetizers and condiments. We'll also offer tea and other beverages, along with a snack table full of multicultural and seasonal treats. Happy holidays!
