Wild Mushroom Foraging and Cooking

with Chef Elissa Rubin-Mahon Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg

Saturday, November 29, 9:30 AM $75

Come forage with chef Elissa Rubin-Mahon, past president and founding culinary chairperson of the Sonoma County Mycological Association, who will teach us about collecting, storing and using local wild culinary mushrooms. We'll meet at a scenic private property near Healdsburg where we will venture into the surrounding woodlands to foray under the watchful eye of Elissa. After our tromp in the woods, we will return to the Relish Culinary Center for a cooking demonstration where Elissa will prepare any edible treasures we find plus some of her favorite mushroom specialties. Lunch will be served with hearty local wines.

We will forage as the weather allows; heavy rain could force us to cancel the forage but the class will still be held. Please wear warm, comfortable clothes and mud-friendly shoes and be prepared to walk on rugged, hilly terrain. You are welcome to bring mushroom samples for us to discuss and attempt to identify.

Seasonal Cocktails for the Holidays

with Mixologist Scott Beattie

Friday, December 5, 6:00 – 8:00 PM

and special guest Lance Winters of St. George Spirits

Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg


Winter citrus fruits are a bartender’s best friend and, this time of year, they are plentiful in the wine country. At this event, Scott will create three citrus cocktails such as the Waverly Place Echo with Hangar One Mandarin Orange Vodka, fresh Satsuma Mandarin Oranges, Chinese Five Spice Honey and more. Scott’s creations are unusually flavorful and perfectly balanced (read: not too sweet) because he layers a multitude of flavors in the same way a chef combines ingredients in a gourmet dish. Scott will show you how fresh ingredients and classic techniques result in extraordinary cocktails.

St. George distiller Lance Winters, who's been hand-crafting beer and spirits for more than 20 years, is always a great addition to our cocktail events as he talks about distilling techniques, history and lore. All of Scott's cocktails will feature St. George and Hangar One spirits...and a few surprises are always on tap (in the bottle?) when Lance is involved.

Participants will enjoy each cocktail with homemade Dim Sum, the perfect pairing with the brightly flavored cocktails, and take home recipes for all cocktails. This is not a dinner class so think about following up the class with a light dinner.

Scott will bring copies of his new book Artisanal Cocktails: Drinks Inspired by the Seasons from the Bar at Cyrus (Ten Speed Press) for guests to purchase—a fantastic holiday gift idea. He and Lance (who is featured in the book) will be happy to sign copies at the end of the class.

Chef biographies, location descriptions, registration information, directions, recipes, news and announcements are available on the Relish website.
