Looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift? On Sunday May 8, Provenance Food and Wine (2312 W. Leland) will host a wine and cheese pairing event, the first of the series, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Tracy Kellner, owner of Provenance Food and Wine, told Center Square Journal that the class “will be held each month, on a rotating basis between [the] two stores. Each class will have the same objective, which is to guide people on how to make the best pairing decisions. Ideally, though, customers could take the class each month and learn something new because what we are taking will be different each month.”

Sunday’s tasting, according to Kellner, will focus on new spring wine selections, a seasonal approach and will feature items made by small producers with interesting stories to tell.

Participants of the event will be able to sample four wines with two cheeses per wine over the course of the evening, while learning about the producers of these items. Attendees can ask questions about the paired items as well as general questions on food and wine pairings.

Kellner invites “anyone over the age of 21 who is interested in learning more about how to pair wine and cheeses and anyone who likes to try and learn new things.” She encourages people to sign up soon.

Class sizes are limited to 10 people. Cost is $30 per person for non-wine club members and $25 for wine club members. Attendees will receive a 15% discount on any purchases made, a goody bag to take home, as well as their fill of samples.

For those who cannot make Sunday’s event, the July session will feature Dave McAnnich, editor-at-large of Saveur Magazine.  Check Provenance’s website for more details.

    I admit that I’m spoiled with so many great choices near my home in Ravenswood Gardens. I particularly like Provenance Food & Wine for their informative classes and knowledgeable staff. When entertaining, grilling or gifting, I know I can always find a good wine and some goodies to go along with a meal.
