Holiday Cheese Course (partial hands-on)

with Chef Sheana Davis

Friday, November 14, 7:00 – 9:30 PM

Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg


Get ready for holiday entertaining with chef and cheesemaker Sheana Davis who will show you how to create a beautiful and delicious restaurant-style cheese course, the perfect ending for a festive dinner party. Chef Sheana has selected four artisan cheeses and will demonstrate how to make creative accompaniments for each—you will learn about compotes, candied nuts, chutneys, flavored honeys and more. After the demonstration, guests can participate in “plating” the complete cheese course, learning how to perfectly cut cheese and design a professional-looking plate. Of course, our evening would not be complete without pairing the cheese course with local wine. This is a great class for learning about artisan cheeses, classic and modern accompaniments, determining cheese quantities for a specific number of guests, appropriate cheese storing and cutting techniques, and professional plating and wine pairing suggestions. You'll leave with the knowledge and experience to host your own holiday cheese and wine party.

A Braising Feast (hands-on) with Chef Doug Nicosia

Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg

Saturday, November 15, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM plus 5:30 – 7:30 PM $90

When the weather gets cool, we all crave food that is warm and hearty. At this class, chef Doug Nicosia is going to lead you as you create luscious braised dishes inspired by his time living, cooking and farming in Italy. Braising is a perfect technique for cuts of meat that require long, slow cooking, providing melt-in-your-mouth results. (These also happen to be the less expensive cuts which is nice on the pocketbook.) Participants will meet in the morning to create each of the dishes, learning universal techniques for preparing braises that can be applied to a wide variety of meats and flavors. We'll serve a light lunch once the braises are cooking, then excuse guests for a few hours of free time in charming downtown Healdsburg to begin your holiday shopping or explore local tasting rooms, see a movie or just hang out in the town plaza, whatever suits your fancy. You’ll return to the Relish Culinary Center in the early evening to create a salad and sides before we relax and enjoy our feast paired with Quivira Vineyards wines.
