Pairing a classic cocktail with cheese is an elegant and easy way to entertain, yet not all of us understand how to pair the cocktail and cheese to create an experience that is better than the sum of its parts. During this interactive workshop, we will discuss the history and cultural significance of the Daiquiri cocktail and how it has evolved over the years.

We will discuss the professional best practices for pairing cocktails with cheese and how the flavor profiles in both the cocktail and the cheese can add or detract from each other. We will mix up a Daiquiri together, discuss some of its variations and recipes, then you can sit back, relax, and be guided through a tasting of the three kinds of cheese we’ve chosen to pair with your drink.

Co-led by Jennifer Greco, an expert in French cheese, and Forest Collins, a renowned cocktail specialist, from this conversation we will gain an appreciation for the history and cultural impact of the Daiquiri and uniquely, how to enjoy it with cheese.

For the Daiquiri:

  • Rum, your choice (we'll be using Plantation 3 Stars)
  • Freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • Simple syrup

For the cheese pairing:

  • We'll update this section closer to the date of the Conversation

As a life-long Francophile, Jennifer Greco realized her dreams of moving to France in 2003 where she quickly discovered that her true passion was learning about French cheese and wine. She holds a B.A. in Art History from the University of Washington and spent several years as a chef and a pastry chef in the US. After settling into a small winemaking village in the south of France, she started writing a food blog, Chez Loulou - A Taste of Life in France, which led to her ongoing project to taste and document every cheese produced in France. She is now based in Paris where she continues to seek out, write about, and share her knowledge of French cheese on both her blog and with passionate cheese lovers from around the world. This project has led her to be interviewed by several French-themed publications such as France and Living France magazines, and be invited to share cheese knowledge on podcasts such as The Earful Tower. She was also interviewed about the best cheese shops in Paris by CN Traveler and was featured on the NPR affiliated radio show, Louisiana Eats!, with Poppy Tooker. In 2015 Jennifer was invited to sit on the jury at the Best Baguette in Paris competition along with 14 other French chefs, pâtissiers and fromagers. She is currently studying for a French Wine Scholar certification.

This seminar will be offered in tandem with cocktail expert, Forest Collins, who has been researching and writing about drinks since founding 52 Martinis in 2007 to chronicle her search for the best cocktail bars in Paris. Forest is the France Academy Chair for the World's 50 Best Bars and Treasurer of the France chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. Additionally, she is the creator of the iOS app Paris Cocktails and host of the radio show and podcast, Paris Cocktail Talk. She has written for Drinks International, Serious Eats, PUNCH drinks, and numerous Paris-based websites about the Paris cocktail scene.
