Formaggio Kitchen Wine & Cheese Fundraiser for the Blackstone Innovation School

  • Formaggio Kitchen 268 Shawmut Avenue Boston, MA, 02118 United States (map)

Join Formaggio Kitchen’s general manager and wine buyer of 14 years Julie Cappellano and cheese, wine and honey expert Marianne Staniunis for a wine and cheese class featuring our favorite Formaggio Kitchen products and pairings. Julie and Marianne will lead an intimate group through the tasting of 5+ wines and 10 cheeses, and will wax poetic about these wonderful foods they’ve fallen in love with at the shop and during their travels in France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Portugal, and Spain!

The best part of this delicious and educational class is that all of the profits from the class will be donated to The Blackstone Innovation School. The Blackstone is a public elementary school just a few blocks down Shawmut Avenue from Formaggio Kitchen. This bright and cheerful school serves over 600 kids from our neighborhood and East Boston, the majority of whom come from low-income families. Bill Wolff, President of the Friends of Blackstone non-profit will be on hand to talk about why the Blackstone school is so special.

100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Friends of Blackstone School non-profit, which directly supports the school. Cheese and wine will be donated by Formaggio Kitchen South End and friends in the beverage industry. Instructors Julie and Marianne are donating their time. Julie's son currently is a K1 student at the Blackstone School. Marianne is a staunch public school proponent who attended Boston Public Schools growing up and graduated from Harvard Law School.

Spend a chilly January evening warming your tastebuds and your spirits, while supporting our neighborhood elementary school at the same time!

This intimate class takes place in our South End shop, and is standing room only. If you require seat please let us know, as we can provide a limited number of seats as needed. Please let us know if you have any allergies.
