Reader Giveaway: Wijnjas – dinner for two

Wijnjas turns dinner into a celebration. We’ve been there for romantic dates; we’ve gone with a party of 60 and we’ve gone with a parent group, prams easily fitting in their cavernous rooms. Whilst they offer an extensive menu, each time our orders have been the same: ‘Cheese Please’.

For Wijnjas has between 70 to 80 types of cheese on offer and they match these delicacies with their other speciality: wine, of which they stock over 240 vintages. During the summer, the owners and workers have the hard task of wandering through the regions of France, Italy, Spain, Germany and picking out the best cheese and wines from hundreds of producers. It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. And the beneficiaries are their customers, who get to sample the best of them together.

The best way to do this is through their Ostbuffé, 25 different types of cheese accompanied by gorgeous cold cuts from the charcuterie, along with bread and home-made marmelade. Coffee and chocolates follow. To take this to the next level, it’s a great idea to add the vinpaket, where wines are selected to match the cheeses of the day beautifully. All the cheese and wines are introduced and explained, so if you weren’t sure what the difference between a Brie and a Camembert was before the evening, you certainly will after. Dinner and an education in one.

If you’re not a cheese lover (and I’m not sure we can be friends if this is so), there are, of course, other options. Seafood platters, Duck with truffles – all sorts of mouthwatering delights grace the menu at Wijnjas. They also offer themed ‘tasting days’, where you can sample wines from a particular region, catch up with like-minded people at an after-work event and listen to experts expanding (literally) on the benefits of cheese.

Wijnjas can seat up to 165 people altogether, spread over 7 rooms in an underground cellar. Whether it’s a date for two or a wedding party, this is THE place to indulge.

    Not a joke, but this made me laugh:

    Who am I to diss a Brie

    I cheddar the world and the feta cheese

    Everybody’s looking for Stilton
