There’s plenty to taste and see at The Gog
Love the whiff of a stiff fromage (not to mention the taste), combined with a bottle of your favourite wine? Well The Gog has a tasting that’ll hit your sweet spot in just one of its regular chances to learn more about food and drink. A French cheese and wine-tasting event takes place on 1 December at the farm shop, in association with Mons Cheesemongers and Cambridge Wine Merchants.
The Gog’s own cheesemongers will be joined by a connoisseur from the Mons team to talk about The Gog’s range of French cheeses and why they have been selected for the festive season.
They will then be paired with wines and port available in the delicatessen. Five cheeses and wines will be served with a selection of crackers during the tasting, from 7pm to 9pm. Tickets cost £25.
Next up, on 7 and 14 December there will be chances to attend a Big Green Egg class, which will teach you how to get the most out of these lauded outdoor cookers, with a special focus on Christmas cooking.
Whether you are new to all things Big Green Egg or a seasoned Egg chef, the class covers festive cooking ideas using your BGE. Last year’s class covered everything from a ‘traditional’ turkey, to a maple-glazed ham and a turkey curry. Classes are 5.30pm to 9pm and tickets cost £38.
