What could your team learn about each other while sampling exceptional cheeses?
Your team will be joined live by a celebrated cheese expert and led through unforgettable flights of cheeses (and optional wines, charcuteries and desserts). Open your cheese pairing kit with nine elegantly-wrapped packets plus utensils and a plate. Bite into the first cheese. What does it remind you of?
Your team will connect with each other and form new memories as you laugh and learn about cheese – and what they can tell you about your team!
