On Saturday, November 19, pay homage to Italian formaggio with us at Jump! We’ve teamed up with Canada’s premier cheese expert and owner of Cheese Boutique, Afrim Pristine, to bring you a special collaboration dinner celebrating cheeses from Italy. Guests will enjoy a welcome reception in Jump’s bar featuring a selection of passed canapés beginning at 6pm. Guests will then be seated for a four-course dinner starring some of the most beloved Italian cheeses — all handpicked by Afrim himself. With over 25 years of experience in the art of cheesemaking, we invite you to tour Italy through taste with one of the world’s youngest maître fromager as your guide. Mangiamo formaggio italiano!
