One of our favorite things about summer in Northern California is that it’s wild king salmon season. We love this meaty, flavorful fish, and have planned a menu that highlights this local specialty and paired it with produce from our ¾ acre vegetable garden, also at its peak this time of year.
Our salmon celebration will include salmon tataki brochettes with nori furikake, salmon sliders with piquillo peppers , smoked salmon, potato and corn chowder, and cedar-plank salmon with roasted tomato butter, all enjoyed with an array of Cakebread wines. For dessert, enjoy roasted strawberries with Bellwether Farms ricotta and crunchy seed cookies.
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.
