Watermelon Gazpacho

About This Event

There’s probably no dish more perfectly suited for a celebration than paella—watching a large pan of it being made over the fire is almost as entertaining as sitting down to share it. We’ll prepare and enjoy a menu inspired by classic flavors of Spanish cuisine. 


To start

  • Watermelon Gazpacho
  • Lamb Meatballs with Currants and Pine Nuts
  • Tortilla Espagnole with Romesco Sauce

At the table

  • Seafood Paella with Spanish Chorizo
  • Paella with Linquiça Sausage, Pork and Chicken
  • Honey & Almond Semifreddo

All classes are participation style and include the class, a tour of the winery and culinary gardens (weather permitting), an appetizer reception and a three-course lunch paired with Cakebread Cellars wines. All participants leave with a Cakebread Cellars apron, a booklet of recipes and wine notes from the day, some great memories and quite often, new friends.
