Classic Cassoulet Class, Nov. 19

November 8th, 2016 Cookbook

cassoulet-imageThe cassoulet is a beloved French classic and one of Chef Ken Tufo’s favorite dishes. The rustic dish, rich with culture and history, captivated our Chef early in his career and deepened his love of cooking. The single-pot, slow-cooked dish consists of assorted meats and white beans and herbs, and is an autumn tradition.
 
Learn how to create this French bistro dish at our Saturday, November 19 cooking class. The 90-minute class begins at 11:30 and is priced at $35 per person. It includes instruction, a light meal, and a welcome glass of prosecco. Reserve by calling 727-873-7964.
 
Good to know: Some say the cassoulet originated in 1355 when Edward, Prince of Wales – known as the Black Prince – took the French town of Castelnaudary by siege. His plan was to starve the townspeople, but the French responded with unforeseen reserves of culinary savoir-faire. Each family brought what little remained in their pantry – white beans, garlic, pork shoulder, sausages, stale breadcrumbs – to a vast caldron in the town’s main square, and discovered one of France’s most delicious traditions. We’re sure you’ll make it one of your traditions after this class!

Historic Spanish Wines Celebrated at Oct. 19 Wine Dinner

October 10th, 2016 Cookbook

Rich history and unique terroir combine to create unparalleled sparkling and dry wines at the Spanish vineyard Raventos i Blanc. We celebrate and experience a selection at our dedicated wine dinner on Wednesday, October 19.

Raventos’ winemaking legacy in northeastern Spain dates to 1497. Their wines reveal their mastery of the art, and our chefs have planned a menu that complements the selections chosen by our sommelier, Justin Chamoun.

VIEW THE MENU HERE.

The dinner is inspired by Justin’s recent visit to the Raventos winery in Pendes, Spain, where he was privileged to lunch with owner Manuel Raventos in his private library.
Manuel Raventos

“He told me the fascinating history of the vineyard, pulling books from the library’s shelves and describing the visits of kings and queens over the centuries. It was humbling to know that the vineyard has been running since America was just beginning to be formed! Even more impressive is the quality of Raventos wines and their value. Our first dinner there was at an amazing restaurant and we were blind-tasting the Raventos sparkling wines versus true French Champagnes, and couldn’t tell the difference. We all argued over which was which during every single course. This is so remarkable because the weather in Penedes, Spain, is not like the weather in Champagne, nor do these use the same grapes or have the same type of soil conditions.”

Let your palate be the judge at our October wine dinner.
