    Spanish Tapas, or little dishes are so delicious and easy to prepare. Select some really good and affordable Spanish wines and it’s a party! These are some really good recipes I’ve made for our Spanish wines pairings classes over the years that you’re sure to enjoy preparing at home. We’ll have traditional Croquetas de Jamón Serrano (Serrano Ham Croquettes) with a Smoky Pimenton Sauce, Tostada de Seta (Bread with Mushroom and Aioli), Gambas al Aijillo (Shrimp in Garlic), and for dessert Torta de Santiago or Flourless Almond Cake.

    Growing up in New Orleans, May always meant fresh artichokes and my favorite dish was Italian, stuffed with bread crumbs, herbs, lemon and of course, Reggiano Parmesan and Pecorino Romano. It’s so simple, but so delicious and easy to prepare. Freeze and enjoy all summer! That's the inspiration for this class and will be our first dish. We'll then make a simple Marinated Olive Salad, Pan Roast Chicken with Rosemary, Garlic, and Spaghetti Bordelaise.

    Off the Vine is sponsoring a series of classes designed to help us learn how to incorporate raw foods into our everyday diet. We’ll start with a fresh spritzer to cool us down, as we prepare Raw Food Italian style! We’ll make two pastas: Fettuccine squash noodles in Alfredo sauce, and Angel-hair squash noodles in sun-dried tomato marinara, along with our local Summer Salad. All will show how quick and easy it is to enjoy healthy raw Italian food at home. For dessert - a tasty raw Berry Pie with strawberries and blueberries with a sweet crème sauce made from cashews. Come explore raw food with us!

    If you were going to take only one cooking class in your whole life, this should be the one! In this hands-on class you will learn all about the most important tool in your kitchen, your knife. You’ll learn how knives are made, how they should be handled, maintained and stored and most importantly, how each style of knife should be used. You’ll receive hands-on instruction on paring, boning, slicing, chopping, dicing, and mincing. We’ll have various knives for you to use in class, but it's important that you bring from home your 2 favorite knives; preferably a short blade and longer blade knife. We’ll make a Red Gazpacho and sandwiches out of all your hard work to enjoy after class.
    Cost: $45

    In this class we're going to de-mystify the soufflé. Everyone loves them; they're super easy to make; you can make big ones or individual ones; sweet ones or savory ones. So why's everyone afraid of the poor little things? No more! We'll be making a Gruyere Cheese Soufflé, Shrimp and Avocado Soufflé, Spinach Soufflé, and finally a Chocolate Soufflé.
    Cost: $45

    Executive Chef/Co-Owner of Stinky's Fish Camp, Brannon Janca

    Chef Brannon's tomato class in 2010 was absolutely phenomenal. We all learned so much and tasted some awesome dishes. Early summer on the coast is the beginning of tomato season. Those of you who've sampled the myriad of dishes Chef Brannon created at The Lake Place, using many types of local tomatoes, will really appreciate this class. And those of you who haven't, won't want to miss this opportunity. Come experience a selection of the best locally grown tomatoes, meet the growers, Jennifer and Andy MacAlexander, and learn all about hydro tomato growing, the many varieties, and their distinct flavor profiles. Your menu will be Tomato Stack with Fresh Mozzarella, Smoked Salmon B.L.T, Poblano Marinated New Zealand Lamb Chops with Creamy Polenta, and Tomato Strawberry Jam, and Fresh Blackberry Cobbler with ice cream for dessert.

    Over the past several years I’ve created recipes for quite a few wine pairings classes featuring delicious and affordable Spanish wines. In the process I’ve learned about the unique ingredients and flavors used in Spanish cuisine. In the class I’d like to share some simple to prepare dishes you’ll enjoy this spring and summer. We’ll start with a Red Gazpacho topped with avocado and cucumber finished with Spanish Sherry Vinegar. Cumin Crusted Gulf Shrimp over Black Bean Mango Salsa, Spanish Pork Tenderloin in Pimenton (Spanish Smoked Paprika) Sauce, and Espresso Flan for dessert.
