Wine and Cheese and Holidays at Magers

mastercheesehtcoverMagers & Quinn will be hosting two noteworthy Heavy Table-related events we’d like to share with our readers.

October152009730pmdrinkthisOn Sunday Nov. 29, at 4:30pm, Heavy Table contributors and Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin authors James Norton and Becca Dilley will appear at Magers & Quinn in Uptown to chat about their new book and sign holiday gift copies.

Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, author of Drink This: Wine Made Simple, will be MCing, and France 44 will bring a couple of terrific master-made cheeses to share.

Dara’s own Drink This event takes place at Magers & Quinn on Friday, Dec. 4 at 7:30pm.

Says Magers: “If you’ve been baffled by a wine list, stood perplexed before endless racks of bottles at the liquor store, or ordered an overpriced bottle out of fear of the scathing judgment of a restaurant sommelier, Dara is here to help.” Noted wine ignoramus James Norton will be on hand to MC.
