The Concept of Wine: 3-Class Series

Wednesday Jul 12, 2017 - Jul 26, 20175:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Sommelier Victor Orozco

The concept of wine is quite elusive. Many people drink and experience wine frequently, others will take courses or read about it, but most people won't have the perfect image of what wine is about and could not understand what's to a full body, dry, fruity, bold, elegant, complex wine, or those things that make wine such a sophisticated beverage. All these things will be perceived differently by different people since subjectivity remains at the forefront of our general impression of the wine. Then we must understand the complexity of older wine, which may be another chapter, but the concept will remain the same. This series of 3 classes will focus on a different wine-producing area (Italy, Napa, Spain) each class. Students are requested to bring 3 glass/crystal clear wine glasses to class. You must be 21 or older to attend.

Exploring Gluten Free Baking

Thursday Jul 13, 2017
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

 None

We have had so much interest in Gluten Free that we convinced Chef Marla to develop a class for us, from the recipes she already uses in her baking and at the request of her clients. The recipes you will learn in this class will make it very hard for you to turn back to gluten recipes. Chef Marla will help you take baking classics we all love with regular wheat flour and replace it with homemade gluten free flour. In this class we will learn how to make gluten free flour and some other variations. We will then use this flour in cookies, brownies, cakes, and biscuits.
