Lunch with the Winemaker
Next Event: May 26th, 2018
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
These events are structured much like our popular “Winemaker Dinners,” but are a bit more value driven.
Join Celita and Doug for a culinary journey to Portugal this spring. After several visits to Portugal and days spent in Portuguese cooking classes, we want you to experience some of their favorites from this often overlooked corner of Europe.
The foods of Portugal are centered around whole grains, beans in various forms, seafood – including Balcalhau (salted Codfish), sausage, and their famous “Black Pork”. The cuisine is unique unto its own, deviating significantly from the more well-known Italian, French, and Spanish foods.
