CHEDDAR & A PINT COCKTAIL PARTY
 
Saturday, Dec 12th 6:30 - 9 pm
Chef Kelly Sears & Daniel Sirko
 
Three doors apart but kindred spirits in philosophy, Chef Kelly from Marcel's is teaming up with Marché general manager, Daniel Sirko for an evening of beer and cheese pairing. Most people immediately think "wine and cheese," but what about beer and cheese? Its heritage is equally as old and even more solid: Not only do beer and cheese have an ancient heritage, but some cheeses actually have flavors that pair even better with beer. By its structural nature, cheeses are harmonious with beer: the nut and caramel aromas found in aged cheeses are also present in malty beers like brown ales, stouts and porters. Pair a perfectly poured pint of pale ale with high quality sharp cheddar and you've got an absolute crowd pleaser on your hands. 
 
On the menu:
Beer Cheddar Soup with Black Pepper Croutons
Beer, Cheese & Charcuterie Plate Pairings
Warm Blue Cheese & Sweet Pear Cake with Honey Drizzle
 
Tuesday, Dec 15th 6:30 - 9 pm
Chef Cherise Slattery
 
Flour free but rich on flavor! You won't need the flour jar to make these incredibly delicious holiday treats. Using a combination of, nuts, chocolate, and cream, you'll see how easy it is to side-step this common baking ingredient to create a seductive collection of gluten free delights. A savory snack will be served. 

On the menu:
Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

Loaded Caramel Popcorn

Chocolate Peppermint Brownies

Rum Raisin Rice Pudding
