Halloween-themed Cheese & Wine Evening
October 30, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Unlike elegantly-coiffed strangers at a soirée, cheese and wine need little introduction. On this island, it was probably Celts who first ate curdled milk on purpose, while it was the Romans who taught us winemaking, perhaps as a way of altering everyone’s consciousness enough to be able to stomach the idea of eating chunks of sour milk.
But it wasn’t until the 1960s that post-war boffins invented the Cheese AND Wine Evening and took England’s stand-up finger-food scene by storm.
Now, not a moment too soon, the phenomenon reaches Rathmell Reading Room; do come, you simply must meet so-and-so!
