Event description


Greetings Foodies and Wine Lovers!

Join me for a delightful afternoon enjoying the beautiful art of Spanish Cooking and Wine Pairing at the Pescadero Creek Vineyard's magnificent setting, beautifully nestled in the foothills of Pescadero. We'll be going on a delicious journey to Valencia, Spain through our culinary adventures together!

In this hands-on delicious vegan cooking class, you'll make a 4-course meal:

1) A Luscious Appetizer - Smoked Paprika Garbanzo Beans Tapa.

2) A Delightful Salad - Fennel and Orange Salad with cardamom & orange juice dressing.

3) A Magnificent Entree - Paella with organic seasonal vegetables, shallots, garlic, artichokes, caper berries, Spanish green olives and Lemon-Saffron Santo Tomas Bomba Rice.

4) Two Decadent Desserts: Tarta de Santiago de chocolate (Spanish almond tart with dark chocolate and orange zest) and Tarta de Santiago with Red Pears infused with aromatic organic culinary lavender (both dairy and egg-free), which you'll enjoy with Café Bustelo Dark Roast Coffee.

You'll also enjoy your exquisite culinary creations with Pescadero Creek Vineyard’s award-winning wine, the 2014 Pascale Pinot Noir, which beautifully complements the Spanish cuisine!

What To Expect:

Great cooking isn't just about recipes, it's also about passion. In my class you'll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment.

Your experience will include:

• Learning fundamental skills for a lifetime of great cooking

• Working side-by-side with other students to prepare each dish

• Interacting with classmates and the instructor for a rich learning experience

Class runs for 4 hours and limited to 10 students to ensure the most spectacular experience for all. Since, space is limited, early registration is highly encouraged.

Class fee is $175.00 and includes a delicious bottle of 2014 Pascale Pinot Noir (a $65.00 value) and a small bag of organic culinary lavender.

Plus, all registered students of this class will receive a one-time 10% discount offer on a Paella Kit (a Carbon Steel Paella Pan, 2-Pounds of Santo Tomas Bomba Rice, one sweet Smoked Pimenton de la Vera, one jar of Jar Al-Jucar Spanish Saffron and a La Paella Cookbook by Jeff Koehler), tart pan and all other items available in the Toque Blanche store located in downtown Santa Cruz and on their website.

I will provide an apron for each student, a tantalizing fruity red rooibos tea plus light refreshments before the start of class. It’s an experience you’ll savor from beginning to end. This delicious and very unique class makes a beautiful gift to yourself and your loved ones for mother's day, father's day, birthdays and anniversaries too.

I look forward to seeing you in class! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
