POSTCARDS FROM PROVENCE, A WINE AND DINE EXPERIENCE

 WITH JESSICA DUPUY  $95*   

October 19 Tuscany-November 16 Portugal-December 15 Provence

 Join us for this fun and educational experience!  We will be sampling wines from this region as the staff at Onion Creek Kitchens serves you tastings to pair with each wine.

 It has often been said that what grows together goes together, a simple phrase that implies that the cuisines of a certain region, are best enjoyed with the wines from that exact same region. Boeuf Bourguignon is best served with red Burgundy (Pinot Noir), Tuscan Chiana steak or fagioli con salsiccia (beans with sausage) are best served with Chianti Classico or Brunello di Montalcino. Spanish Manchego cheese and Iberico ham come alive with a cold glass of Manzanilla Sherry.

 There’s no reason you can’t experience these culinary adventures at home. Join Jessica Dupuy, sommelier, wine writer, and cookbook author for a deep dive into the regional flavors of iconic wine regions around the world. Learn more about the wines, the grapes from which they’re made, and ways to find them to enjoy at home.

 “It was a meal that we shall never forget; more accurately, it was several meals that we shall never forget, because it went beyond the gastronomic frontiers of anything we had ever experienced, both in quantity and length.”

 These are the words from writer Peter Mayle from his aspirational tale, A Year In Provence. Indeed, the region of Provence evokes visions of verdant lavender fields, quaint hillside villages, and daily farmers markets rich with vibrantly colored fresh produce. Provence is the heart of roséwine. It is believed the Romans drank the pink wine that was directly pressed from the red grapes at harvest here more than 2,000 years ago. But the region produces many different styles of wine.

 For this class, discover the versatile flavors of Provence with vibrant vegetable dishes laced with olive tapenade and fresh herbs such as soupe au pistol and ratatouille, and hearty grilled lamb and beef stews paired with the breadth of light and full-bodied rosés, the spicy, earthy tones of Grenache-based Côtes du Rhône, and the rich, savory notes of brawny Bandol reds.
