A Tres Leches Tasting and More

For this month’s cheese tasting at Quince, we're planning a tasting of three milks (or tres leches): goat, cow, and sheep. What distinguishes each one? What constitutes an ideal pairing? I'll talk about the traits of all three and walk you through a 3-course tasting.

Come join us on Saturday, February 26, 2011 at 4 p.m. As always, tastings are held at Quince Fine Foods, a small shop near my house in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. We roll out the cheeses Slow Food-style, one at a time with accompaniments. The last selection comes with a complimentary beverage.

Come join us and meet other cheese lovers! Seating is limited to twelve, so please reserve in advance by calling or emailing the shop: (215) 232-3425 or

Tastings cost $12. All proceeds go to the store.

Next month: It's not too early to sign up for the March 26 cheese tasting at Quince. We've paired up with New Holland Brewing from Michigan for a tasting of cheese and craft beer. Come join us for a sip of Dragon's Milk.

Other Tastings around Philadelphia: Don't forget that it's still Winnimere season. The Garces Trading Company hosts a beer and cheese class with Philadelphia Brewing Company and the Cellars at Jasper Hill (the makers of Winnimere) on March 1 ($65). Reservations required.

Di Bruno Bros. offers a series of special Winnimere tastings coming up in March -- the store has ordered an unusual batch of this washed-rind cheese to be washed in Root, a local spirit. Here are the deets on those three tastings, which are free and open to the public:
Di Brun Bros. 9th Street , March 5, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Di Bruno Bros. Center City, March 6, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Ardmore Farmers’ Market, April 9, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
