It can be challenging to know how to graduate from the casual “bring-your-own-beer” parties of your early-20s to more sophisticated adult affairs. That’s why Empire Communities is hosting its ‘Growing up with Gouda’ event on Wednesday, October 24th. It’s the latest installment of the developer’s #EmpireAdulting series, which provides young homebuyers with the skills they need to navigate everything from home financing to hosting a killer wine and cheese night.

Previous events have included a wellness pop-up market and a class on how to style food photographs hosted by foodie blogger couple Chef Sous Chef. Now, Empire wants to help Millennials and new homebuyers learn the art of making the perfect charcuterie board at its latest event, scheduled for Wednesday, October 24th from 7pm to 9:30pm.

Participants will learn how to host the perfect party from hosting expert Mat Sutherland from the Cheese Boutique, and will take home a copy of the iconic shop’s new cookbook For the Love of Cheese.

The event will be held at the Empire Phoenix presentation centre, located at 2183 Lake Shore Boulevard West. On-site parking is limited, but public parking is available via Humber Bay Park Road East and along Marine Parade Drive.

Empire Phoenix is coming soon to South Etobicoke’s Mystic Pointe neighbourhood. The 449-suite condo will consist of two towers designed by renowned Graziani + Corazza Architects Inc, with interior design from Figure3.

The development will feature a wide range of amenities, including a beautiful outdoor pool, spa and sauna. Those who enjoy an active lifestyle can look forward to using the fully-equipped fitness centre, yoga room and outdoor courtyard.

The location offers residents easy access to the city through the Gardiner Expressway and the Mimico GO station, while giving them the very best South Etobicoke has to offer through local shops, restaurants and the Humber Bay Park.
