My name is Adam Centamore. I’m a wine & cheese educator and writer.

I host events, seminars, and classes for people looking to enjoy some of the finer bites in life. I'm also the author of Tasting Wine & Cheese - An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing and write culinary and travel articles for various magazines and online publications.

I hope my site gives you a better sense of what I do, and how I can make your life a little tastier. Please take a peek around - there’s a lot to see! The EXPERIENCE and ATTEND pages talk about what’s possible, as well as my upcoming classes and events. Click a topic or two on the LEARN page, where I share tips and ideas on all sorts of culinary topics. The READ page takes a look into my adventures abroad, published articles, and other wine & cheese stuff.

If you’d like to stay in touch please consider signing up for my email and connecting through Instagram and Facebook. Or, just contact me directly! I’m always excited to meet people that love to eat, drink, and learn.
