How do our wines pair up with fresh pasta dishes? This educational experience focuses on how to make dough, match pasta shapes to sauces, and – most importantly – how to pair up wine with this culinary classic.
The fun begins with an educational background on our winery and the wines we make – including a tour of the property. You’ll then get to work making fresh kale malfatti (an old-school Napa classic), butternut squash agnolotti dressed in brown butter and sage, spaghetti carbonara with nettles, and hearty spinach pappardelle with a rich duck bolognaise. We’ll continue the ode to Italy with cannelloni with ricotta, frais de bois and pistachios to conclude the meal. All enjoyed with a selection of Cakebread wines.
All classes are participation style and include a tour of the property, a tasting of Cakebread Cellars wines, 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.
