About This Event

When all the grapes have all been gathered and winter is near, our chefs have their eye on the next harvest in Northern California: Fresh Dungeness crab. Join us for the inside track how to buy, clean and prepare this local delicacy while building the perfect chilly weather menu for home entertaining. After class, delight in sensory exploration as we pair estate and reserve Chardonnays from the Cakebread Cellars library to complement your creations. ~ MENU ~ To Start ~ Dungeness Crab Cakes · Crab Melt · Twice Baked Crab Soufflés ~ At the Table ~ The Palace Hotel’s Cioppino · Harissa Spiked Roast Crab with Spicy Aioli · Pumpkin Cheesecake ~ 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.
