About this Event
Greetings Foodies & Wine Lovers!
Join me for a delightful afternoon enjoying the beautiful art of Vegan Moroccan Cooking and Wine Pairing at the lovely FlipJack Ranch in Bonny Doon nestled in the magical Santa Cruz Mountains. We’ll be going on a delicious journey to Marrakesh, Morocco through our culinary adventures together!
In this delicious hands-on vegan cooking & baking class (dairy & egg-free, but not gluten/nut-free) you’ll make a 4-course meal:
A Delectable Appetizer – Moroccan-Spiced Chickpeas made with fried chickpeas, preserved Meyer lemons, crushed green olives and za’atar spice.
A Delightful Salad – Fennel, Orange and Radish with a delightful Citrus Cardamom Dressing.
A Magnificent Entree – Sweet & Savory Couscous made with zucchini, yellow squash, red bell peppers, artichoke hearts, shallots, garlic, fresh dill, Moroccan pitted oil-cured black olives, almonds, dried apricots and za’atar spice.
A Decadent Dessert – Fig Almond Cream Tart, which you’ll enjoy with a delicious cardamom-infused dark roast coffee.
You’ll enjoy your exquisite culinary creations with McBride Sisters’ delicious wine, the Truvee Red Blend Central Coast 2013, which beautifully complements the Moroccan cuisine.
About Truvee Red Blend Central Coast 2013 – Elegant and refined the red blend is evocative of Cotes du Rhone Village style. Dark fruit and spice unfold into layers of cocoa, blackberry, cherry, rose, plum and spice.
