ART OF THE BLEND - A RED WINE SESSION

Wednesday, May 26, 6 – 7:30 p.m. | $55 | Instructor: Jamie Stratton of Jacob Liquor Exchange

Why blend wines anyway? What does each grape bring to the party? Where did this practice start and is the rest of the world embracing it? There are many questions that can be asked when blending grapes is involved. I look forward to answering those questions while sipping some fantastic blended reds from regions around the world.

This class will be held in person at Mark Arts

TASTE OF ITALY: MANICOTTI

Tuesday, June 22 , 6 – 8 p.m. | $81 | Instructor: Chef H

There are differing views among Italian pasta makers and food historians about the origins of cannelloni or manicotti. In Italy, this pasta is known as cannelloni, but in the United States, it goes by the name of manicotti, meaning sleeves. Both names refer to either dried pasta tubes or rolled up sheets of fresh pasta that are stuffed and baked before serving. In this class, we will fill ours with a variety of three cheeses and a surprise herb. The course will start with participants making a salad and an Italian dressing and the meal will end with a seasonal fruit. Working in pairs, students will make the filing and pipe the cheese mixture into the cooked pasta sleeves.  Each student will be given a reusable piping bag for future use.

Suggested Wine Pairing:  A Full-bodied Chianti or Merlot. Bring a bottle with you to enjoy!

Come early, fill your wine glass and walk around the gallery.

LET'S COOK LOBSTERS

Thursday, July 22 , 6 – 8 p.m. | $105| Instructor: Chef H

Yes, you read that correctly! In this class you will get to choose a live lobster, learn how to prepare it, and enjoy it among friends, just like they do in Maine.
The Seafood Shop in Wichita will provide the live crustaceans for this workshop. The order with the Maine lobsterman will be placed on Monday July 19, 2021 so be sure to sign up soon! We cannot accept cancellations after 12 p.m. Monday July 19, 2021.

This is a casual evening indeed, with lots of melted butter and garnishes of seaweed and lemon. The course will begin with making an iceberg lettuce wedge salad with famous Chart House Blue Cheese dressing. For dessert we will have a special treat– an apple pear tort that will be made at the beginning of the class.

This is a unique, hands-on opportunity to enjoy fresh lobster right here in Wichita.

Suggested Pairing: Chardonnay or other white wine of your choice. Bring a bottle with you to enjoy!

SCALLOPS WITH AVOCADO CREAM

Tuesday, August 10 , 6 – 8 p.m. | $81| Instructor: Chef H

What could be better than seared diver scallops over avocado cream? The delicate flavor of the scallop marries perfectly with the rich taste of fresh avocado. If you have ever eaten scallops that are tough, that means they have been over-cooked. In this workshop, you will learn how to sear fresh scallops to perfection! Scallops are not often tried at home, but after this workshop you will have the confidence of an expert in preparing this meal. The course will start with a crunch salad. Making this salad will give new meaning to ramen noodles, cabbage slaw, and homemade dressing. The meal will conclude with a seasonal medley of fresh fruit and a honey dressing.
Every ingredient is available locally and easy to find, so you can easily use your newly acquired skills to make a meal that impresses!

Suggested Pairing: a light white wine of your choice. Bring a bottle with you to enjoy!
