Private Events

If you love cheese as much as we do, hosting a special event for your friends and family at Van Hook or in your home is a great way to celebrate any occasion. From intimate birthday gatherings to large corporate events, our team can put together a package that meets all your cheese needs. 

Here are some of our private event offerings:

Cheese and/or Charcuterie Tasting 

A 1.5 hour sampling of seasonal cheeses and meats with some discussion of the origin and flavor profile of each. This offering is education "lite" and works best for groups that have other activities in mind (like opening presents or giving speeches). 


Cheese and/or Charcuterie Class 

A level above a tasting, a 1.5 hour class dives deep into each cheese and meat on the board. Party goers will leave feeling full of cheese and cheese knowledge. 

Sample Class Topics:

Cheese 101

Pairing 101

Cheeses of _____ (the USA, Italy, France, the Netherlands -- you name the place, we'll name the cheese!)

Chocolate and Cheese


Group Fondue 

What's better than a meal of melted cheese and accompaniments? Sharing that meal with your friends! Fondue can be the main event or an added feature. Our pot serves up to 12 at a time and we do all the set up and clean up. Don't need our help? We can rent our pot to you (and provide all the cheese and fixings you need!). 


We have a 10 guest minimum for all private events. For events at Van Hook, we can accommodate up to 12 guests.
