One-dish cooking doesn’t get more festive than this. Paella is cooked outside and feeds a crowd—a Spanish-style party in a pan.
In addition to making seafood, chickpea and chorizo paella and a chicken, pork and andouille sausage version, we’ll make a tapas—including squash blossom and cheese empanadas, papas bravas, lamb meatballs with pine nuts and currants, and crab tostadas with guacamole—to enjoy with wine as our paella cooks over an open fire. When the paella is ready, we’ll haul the pans to the Pecan Patio to enjoy with more Cakebread wine.
All classes are participation style and include a tour of the property, a tasting of Cakebread Cellars wines (except for the children’s classes), the cooking class and a three-course lunch paired with wine. All participants leave with a Cakebread Cellars logo apron, a booklet of the recipes and wine notes from the day, some great memories and quite often, new friends.
