Sizzle & Swirl Cooking Class at Crushpad Winery
Parties That Cook and Crushpad invite you to "Sizzle & Swirl," an exciting evening of wine tasting paired with a hands-on cooking class. Admission includes wine tasting and pairing with a menu of international appetizers.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a nibble and glass of wine. A tour of the winery will follow, including explanation of key steps in the wine making process. You'll enjoy a series of comparative barrel tastings from Crushpad's library of ultra-premium wines. Each class will explore a unique wine-tasting theme, such as the wines of the Russian River Valley or blind tasting Rhone whites.
You'll then be treated to a lively introductory cooking lesson by the Parties That Cook chefs featuring tips such as the fastest way to dice an onion without a tear. Working together with other guests, you'll cook up an array of gourmet appetizers designed to pair with the wines. Each team will work on a recipe from the evening's tapas menu, all while sipping wine and listening to upbeat music.
You'll then relax and have a chance to enjoy the "fruits of your labor"! After the event, we'll email you copies of the recipes and digital photos.
