Cheeswerks, located on Bathurst, just south of King, is a family-owned and operated cheese-centric restaurant. Here, you’ll find artisan grilled cheese sandwiches, a great cheese selection and fondue. It’s a cheese-lover’s paradise! They even have a selection of lactose-free cheeses for you lactose-intolerant folks.
The Culinary Adventure Co. is a chef owned and operated food adventure company owned by Scott Savoie, a private chef and culinary instructor with over 25 years experience. This isn’t your average food tour company – while they feature walking tours in Riverside/Leslieville and Little India, they also offer more adventurous tours which include a canoe & beach dining adventure and mushroom foraging.
Cheesewerks and the Culinary Adventure Co. teamed up for some interactive classes and a fun dinner series beginning this fall.
During our dinner, they gave us a taste of what we could expect from the dinners and classes. Here’s a look at what we sampled, starting with the Orange Vanilla Soda – spiked with Crystal Head vodka.
Southern Fried “BLT” – on a crostini with lemon basil aioli
Poulet a L’estragon sur Pate Feuilletee
Mitch’s Coney Island Dog
Tyson Shaw Slow Cooked BBQ Ribs
New England Clam Chowder Sip – with a Cheesewerks grilled cheese point
Nova Scotia Smoked Salmon Pizza – with goat cheese, artichoke and caramelized red onion
S’mores Torching Station
One of the projects behind their new partnership is the Flix + Pix + Plates dinner series which will take place on the third Tuesday of each Month, beginning in September. As the name of the series suggests, it’s essentially dinner and a movie. This one-night-only dining experience is inspired by the film that is shown. It’s very reasonably priced too at $120/couple or $65/person for a 5-course meal with drink pairings.
Another project is the Melt the Market class. It’s a fun and interactive way to discover cheese and explore St. Lawrence Market. During the class, you’ll be shopping and eating your way through market. Afterwards, you’ll come back to Cheesewerks for a cheese-centric cooking class.
Something that also appealed to me is their Signature Sunday School Series where you’ll spend an afternoon learning about beer/wine and cheese pairings.
