The four of us have a delightful time previewing the 2016 edition of The Wedge – Portland Celebrates Cheese! event happening Saturday Oct 1st, 2016 here in Portland, Oregon at the Green Dragon Bistro and Brew Pub (and surrounding streets) at SE 9th and Belmont.
In this episode we cover what the Wedge is and what you can find when you attend, the wonderful Master Classes they offer each year at the Wedge, and the Cheesemaker Dinner happening Friday evening September 30th @ Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon Winery.
We then enjoy five cheeses — River’s Edge Chevre Sunset Bay, Briar Rose Creamery Iris, Goldin Artisan La Chaumine, Ancient Heritage Adelle, and Cascadia Creamery Glacier Blue, two ciders — Wandering Aengus Ciderworks Bloom, & Portland Cider Kinda Dry, and a delightful wine – Clay Pigeon’s 2015 Pinot Gris.
Towards the end of the episode Sasha drops the glorious revelation that we can have butter with our cheese and we talk about some of the artisan producers you will find at the wedge.
