Learn about Burgundy with Jason Kallsen on April 30

Comprised of a gentle southeast facing slope, the core of Burgundy (just south of Dijon, France) produces what many wine experts consider the best Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in the world. Join us as we explore the land, the soil, the people, the culture, and of course the wines of Burgundy. Wine educator extraordinaire Jason Kallsen will start with an overview of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, and how they came to be considered two of the great grapes of the wine world. Then we'll taste some incredible selections as we explore the key regions of Burgundy: Chablis, the Côtes du Nuits, the Côtes de Beaune, the Macôn, the Côte Chalonnaise, and Beaujolais. You will learn how to read a Burgundy label, how to understand the vineyard ranking system (Premier Cru, Grand Cru, etc.), and how to best shop for Burgundy based on your personal tastes. Also included: Delicious appetizers that invoke the flavors and cuisine of the region. Cost is $55.

Welcome Annamarie and MORE DESSERTS!

Quote of the Week

From a guest at a recent event we hosted for the College of Continuing Education:

"I want to compliment you on how well your management of the "Slainte! A Condensed History of Ireland Through Food, Music and Song" course went... Everything from the time I inquired about the course through the end of the night was handled professionally, quickly and accurately. The setting was lovely with unexpected good weather to take in that spectacular view. Check-in was well organized. Things were on time. Erin and Paddy were wonderful (something that I've come to expect from them). The food was really delicious and the serving of it was very organized. The table servers were quiet and thorough. All in all, it was a lovely way to spend an evening in every aspect... You and your staff did a very fine job and I would consider taking another such offering."
