The Great Canadian Cheese Discovery

Featuring artisan cheeses of  Ontario

And Vanessa knows her cheese! She has trained with the Cheese Education Guild in Toronto – Canada’s only comprehensive cheese appreciation program and spends countless hours with local cheesemongers and cheesemakers. Her passion for cheeses oozes while her knowledge will melt away all notions that Canada only makes cheddar.


Vanessa will show you the ’whey’ as you will sample and savour five to seven cheeses from Ontario.  She will also introduce you to the fun-damentals of cheese appreciation including:

- Cheese 101 - how cheese is made and what makes it artisanal

- Different categories of cheese

- Cheese-y lingo

- Buying cheese

- Caring for cheese


Being a Savvy Event, of course, Canadian wines will be tasted too!

Reviews from our guests....


"I was never one to even think about cheese, yet after last night's tasting and great information I am now giving up the store bought cheese!  What a difference." - Joanne


 "What an extremely enjoyable night last light.  The venue at Thyme and Again was very comfortable and professional.  Vanessa engaged everyone around the table.  The way the cheese was presented one at a time with your talk about it and your knowledge was good for all.  I will definitely be back with more friends!' - Lynda
