Cheese, Wine, and Chocolate Tasting

Friday, May 26th from 2 pm to 6 pm

Tablas Creek Vineyard –  The first winery in the world to receive a regenerative Organic Certificate! Chef Jerome’s selection of World’s Best Cheese Winners. Bonnat Chocolate, the oldest artisan producer of chocolate in the world.

Enjoy wine from Tablas Creek 

Tablas Creek is a pioneer of California’s Rhône movement. The first winery in the world to receive a Regenerative Organic Certificate! Founded in 1989, it is the culmination of a friendship between two of the international wine community’s leading families dating back to 1967: the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands. After a four-year search, the partners chose Paso Robles, California for its many similarities to the Southern Rhône and began the lengthy process of importing vine cuttings, building a grapevine nursery, and creating an estate vineyard from the ground up.

Chef Jerome will present a selection of 3 cheeses that won best cheese in the world.

In 2011, a 10-month old Ossau-Iraty from Fromagerie Agour, a family-owned business in the southwest of France, was named World’s Best Cheese at the World Cheese Awards in Birmingham, England. Five years later in 2016, the cheese won the award again.

At the 2019/20 World Cheese Awards in Bergamo, Italy, Rogue River Blue was selected as Grand Champion – a first for an American-made cheese. Rogue River Blue surpassed 3,800 of the world’s most distinguished cheeses to win this award.

Celebrating our 5th year Jerome’s Carmel Valley Market!

This past year has been particularly difficult with high rates of unemployment and food shortages for so many. In recognition of our community’s outstanding support, not only during this past year, but for the last 5 years we’ve been in business, we’d like to help take care of those who are struggling and we need your help too.

Demand for food has increased 400% since the start of the pandemic and the Food Bank of Monterey County has been feeding 60,000 families every month! As we enter our 5th year at Jerome’s Carmel Valley Market we are celebrating by holding a matching fundraiser at Jerome’s to benefit the Food Bank of Monterey County. We pledge to match the first $5000 of donations made to help feed our friends and neighbors. Please join us if you can, any amount helps.

A Taste of World Class Artisanal Products

French Chocolate ● Cheeses from Switzerland ● Laguiole Knives

Friday, November 15
1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Start your holiday shopping at Jerome’s Carmel Valley Market, 2 Chambers Lane, Carmel Valley. On Friday, Nov. 15 you will have a chance to taste and purchase award-winning Chocolat Bonnat, sample a variety of cheeses from the Swiss Alps and find out about the cheesemakers in the Adopt-an-Alp program and meet a representative from Claude Dozorme, the company handcrafting the famous Laguiole knives in France for more than a century.

Chocolat Bonnat is the oldest artisan producer of chocolate in the world. Since 1884, Bonnat has been nurturing its relationship with cocoa growers around the world and educating the palate of those who became connoisseurs. Producing around 100 tons per year, Bonnat is the first chocolate maker to create single-origin and single-estate chocolate bars. They have only two boutiques, one in Voiron and a newly opened store in Paris. Today, the small town of Voiron, near the French Alps, is considered a Mecca for chocolate lovers. Flagship products of Maison Bonnat are honoured with the highest international awards.
Adopt-an-Alp unites dairy farmers in Switzerland, where transhumance originated over 8,000 years ago, with cheese lovers around the world and helps keep this tradition alive. Jerome’s Carmel Valley Market has adopted an Alp and will be offering a wide variety of cheeses from this Alp to its customers throughout the season. Learn the story of each family as they work toward producing their Alpage cheeses. This is a unique opportunity to support farmers, learn about their everyday life on the Alp and be rewarded with spectacular Alpage cheeses.
Maison Claude Dozorme is one of the most prestigious French coutelleries. They have been crafting knives since 1902, including the famed Laguiole knives with the iconic bee. A representative from the company will display beautiful steak knives, pocket knives, cheese knives, corkscrews and even Champagne sabers, which can be purchased or special ordered and personalized with an engraving in time for the holidays.

Kitchen Renovation Announcement






We are so thrilled to announce that after almost 2 years we are finally ready to renovate the kitchen so Chef Jerome and the team can get back to cooking all your favorite dishes! We will close the entire store for 2 days: Monday, Feb. 26th and Tuesday, Feb. 27th. We hope to reopen the grocery and produce part of the market on Wednesday, Feb. 28th.

We understand what a huge inconvenience this is and promise to do everything we can to open as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your patience, your support, and your understanding during this renovation.
