Cakebread Cellars garden

About This Event

Jack and Dolores Cakebread have long believed that a glass of wine was meant to be paired with great food and great company. A chef and master gardener, Dolores planted the first culinary gardens here, and the gardens remain central to the culinary program at Cakebread Cellars today. The bounty of the garden informs what Chefs serve at the table from season to season, and in summertime, that means tomatoes. Like taking a fresh bite out of summer, heirloom and cherry tomatoes from our Culinary Garden fold into a variety of summertime recipes perfect for entertaining family and friends. Cakebread Cellars wines are the perfect accompaniment after class, when you’ll enjoy a 30-minute appetizer reception and three-course luncheon featuring your own culinary handiwork. ~ MENU ~ To Start ~ Fried Green Tomatoes with Goat Cheese & Peperonata · Tuna Meatballs with Bouillabaisse Broth, Fregola & Mussels · Bruschetta with Sheep’s Milk Ricotta & Blistered Cherry Tomatoes · At the Table ~ Lobster Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes, Sweet Corn & Basil · Pancetta Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Tomato Fondue · Peach & Blackberry Galette ~ 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.
