HIP TASTES® presents the inside scoop on the balanced, realistic food and wine approach to spring you've been waiting for. Thought about doing a cleanse but not sure which one is right for you? Want to use more healthy raw foods in your meals, but not sure how to make them taste totally delicious, too? Wondering why you aren't motivated to hit up that yoga class to boot?
Maybe it's because - gasp! - you want some reward coming your way, too (and yes, we're talking about the kind that comes in a wine glass).
Happily, HIP TASTES is here for you.
Hosted by Super Cleanse author/private chef Adina Niemerow & HIP TASTES author/sommelier Courtney Cochran
Together with wellness guru Nicole Cronin
Come join a fresh faced group of HIP TASTERS like yourself for a very fun evening of cleanse savvy (AKA DETOX - exploring different types of cleanses and how-tos, plus interactive prep & enjoyment of a raw foods feast) followed by a lesson in organic, sustainable & biodynamic wines (AKA the RETOX portion of the evening).
We'll kick off the event with a thoughtful intro on mindful eating and drinking - so you can take away tips on how to maximize your enjoyment of both, in a timeframe that makes sense for you.
In a word, it's all about balance.
* 7-7:30pm Mindful eating & drinking capsule lesson with the lovely Nicole Cronin.
Why is Nicole amazing? Nicole has one foot firmly planted in the drinks/nightlife world (having managed Massake in the Marina for 8 years) and another in the wellness realm as a certified yoga instructor. She'll share practical tips on a realistic approach to wellness for Hip Tasters who want to cleanse and who also like to go out on the town.
* 7:30-9pm Cleanse lesson, juicing overview & raw foods cooking lesson with Adina Niemerow (small class size means you really get hands-on in the kitchen!).
Why is Adina such a badass? With two books under her belt and a bevy of private clients who can't get enough of her totally delicious raw-focused meals, Adina is an entrepreneur-auteur with seriously cool creds. In this portion of the evening Adina will cover juice cleanses before we prepare a 3-course raw foods dinner together as a group, then sit down and enjoy around around the long wood table in her gorgeous new Mission kitchen space.
* 9-10pm Sustainable & organic wine tasting with HIP TASTES' founder/sommelier Courtney Cochran (we'll cover the wines in detail while we eat, though you're invited to sip throughout the evening, natch).
Courtney brings the Hip Tastes to this party. Certified sommelier, author of the Hip Tastes book & blog and profiled in Vogue for her style savvy, Courtney will share awesome tips about the nuts and bolts behind sustainable, organically grown and biodynamic wines, with a tasting of wines by Ceago Vinegarden. Cheers to concluding this party with a tasting to send everyone home happy!
In this three-hour evening you will:
*Discover the inside tips, tricks, and strategies for the most delicious way to approach cleanses - and stick with them.
*Get savvy about tailoring a detox approach for your specific needs and symptoms.
*Learn breaking-the-cleanse techniques & recipes.
* Get to know a host of new sustainable wines and their stories, plus when to integrate wine into your cleansing plan.
*Learn how mindfulness can enhance health, energy, creativity and possibility.
Oh, and did we mention you'll also get two books along the way (Super Cleanse + HIP TASTES)+ mindful eating/drinking take-home tips and cleanse recipes to jump-start your own program after the evening wraps?? You'll also get a pass for a complimentary yoga class at The Pad.
Indeed. It's all happening.
