Chef Linton Hopkins of Restaurant Eugene invites guests to the Orchid Room of Restaurant Eugene for his monthly cheese tasting series “Cheese Eugene.” Restaurant Eugene houses a selection of 26-28 cheeses. Each sampling will feature exquisite cheeses from different regions of the world. Reservations are required, and to ensure an intimate and warm gathering, the cheese tasting will be limited to 17 people. There will be carefully selected wine paired with the cheeses and a discussion following the tasting. Five wines are paired with five cheeses for $35 per person plus tax and gratuity. The event begins at 6:30 pm on the third Thursday of every month.

Riccardo Ullio’s new Spanish restaurant, Cuerno, opened last night. The restaurant is located at 905 Juniper St. and you can make reservations by calling (678) 904-4584.

Dynamic Dish is now open for dinner on Thursday through Saturday.

Tickets for this year’s High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction, which will be held on March 27-29th, go on sale soon. Make sure you get your tickets for this fun event quickly, because they sell out FAST. If you can’t afford a ticket, you can always volunteer to help with one of the events.

“King Corn,” a feature documentary about “two friends who try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm,” will be showing at Decatur Public Library on March 25th at 7pm. I have been dying to see this movie. Here is a look at the trailer:

    Hi Jennifer,

    I was wondering if you’ve been to the Beer & Cheese tasting at Brick Store Pub in Decatur. It is the first Monday of every month and it is really fascinating, I never realized how much beer and cheese go so well toghether, they really complement each other. Brick Store also has the nest Veggie Burger in the City, in my humble opinion.

    I have not been to the tastings (not a beer drinker), but have heard great things.
