At this event, you will get to taste quality-certified fruit wines and an array of artisanal cheeses. Our speaker, Keith Muller, will guide us through this tasting and help us discover how to appreciate fruit wines and pair them with cheeses. As the Academic Chair of the George Brown Chef School, Keith provides academic leadership to the faculty and 1,300 full-time students of the school. He is currently the Chair of the heads of Hospitality and Tourism Ontario. Starting out as a High School teacher, Keith also owned his own restaurant and worked as a Food and Beverage Manager at Le Royal Meridien King Edward Hotel and The University Club of Toronto. Keith’s specialty is Culinary Tourism and Slow Food, and he teaches Dessert, Cheese and Wine Pairing.
