Eat all the cheese at tomorrow's Great Northeast Cheese Fest

Written by

It's officially cold now, so that means it's okay to start adding on those fatty winter layers, right? Right? If you said yes, here's one surefire way to get started: Feast on all-you-can-stomach cheese—paired with wine, cider and beer—at the first-ever Great Northeast Cheese Fest tomorrow from 6-9pm at the Flushing Town Hall.

For $60, you'll indulge on a wide range of curds from more than 30 New York creameries and shops including Vulto Creamery (a semi-soft, washed Ouleout), Bovina Valley Farm Creamery (a raw cow's-milk Alderney) and Beecher's Handmade Cheese (salty, cloth-bound Flagship Reserve). Also included in the price are gooey creations from big-name chefs like Hugue Dufour of Michelin-starred M. Wells Steakhouse, who'll be making a raclette using Vulto's Andes variety, and Will Horowitz of Ducks Eatery, who'll prepare a smoked goat cheese version of the famed Tibetan soup as served at Jackson Heights' Phayul.

A fromage coma is inevitable, but ease the pain by washing down the dairy with grade-A booze from homegrown purveyors: seasonal pours from urban cidery Descendant Cider, wine from Rooftop Reds at Brooklyn Grange Farm, and beer from Finback Brewery. Desserts are also locally-sourced, provided by Queens confectioners Judy Lai (Silk Cakes) and Rudolf Merlin (Creme Bakery). Snag your cheesy tickets here
