A Cheese and Boozy Workshop
founder and owner
Cheese Sex Death
We’re excited to welcome Chicago’s cheesemonger Erika Kubick of sexy fromage site, Cheese Sex Death for a February educational workshop taking a walk on the wild side, pairing booze and cheese.
Together, over two hours we’ll learn which cheese pairs best with whiskey.
Explore how to pair cheese with beer from Saisons to Ales.
And work out which cheeses balance a dry tart Rosé…spoiler alert: milky burrata and salty halloumi are two favorites that don’t overpower.
Come hungry and thirsty as this is going to be one indulgent cheese-y afternoon as we learn and imbibe through
Erika’s 10 Commandments of Cheese from the likes of:
Thou Shalt Buy Cheese Often. Only buy as much as you can eat within a few days, and then polish it off.
Thou Shalt Enjoy Thy Cheese At Room Temp. refrigeration dulls the flavor of cheese and makes the texture brittle instead of yielding. Before serving, let soft cheeses sit out for at least 20 minutes and firmer wedges for 40 minutes. and …
Thou Shalt Respect The Rind. All rinds are edible unless they’re coated in wax or cloth.
A sensory experience that will be enjoyed slowly, this Saturday workshop is a perfect addition to your Valentine’s weekend. Especially thanks to Erika’s Sexy Cheese Swag: which yes — we’ll have in house!

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
