‘Wine Country Desserts’ cooking class offered at Refugio Kitchen
Class with L.A. Pastry Chef/Instructor Cindy Mushet offered Thursday, March 30 at 5 p.m.
–The wine country of Paso Robles shares many similarities with the Mediterranean — a serene yet rugged landscape with rolling hills, olive trees, lavender…and world class food and wine showcasing the farm to table bounty of the region. For desserts, this means bold dishes bursting with flavors of the season and a sense of place. Desserts that vibrantly reflect this lifestyle are the perfect ending for modern entertaining.
Join Cindy Mushet, pastry chef, award-winning author, and James Beard finalist, as you learn to create simple, elegant wine country desserts at Refugio Kitchen in Paso Robles on Thursday, March 30 at 5 p.m. Her career spans 25 years in California, beginning at the iconic Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and spanning the length of California. Her warm, engaging teaching style has made her a favorite among pastry teachers, and you’ll learn valuable techniques and tricks of the trade that translate directly into your kitchen, where you can apply the knowledge from class to create desserts for all your wine country inspired gatherings.
Special guest, winery owner Lola Glossner, will pair and pour several of PasoPort & PerCazo Cellars’ highly acclaimed wines.
Desserts you will learn (and taste):
- Crème fraiche panna cotta with rose gelée and red wine strawberries
- Passion fruit meringue tartlets with shredded filo crust and caramelized pineapple
- Meyer lemon and candied ginger shortcakes with champagne-citrus compote
- Bittersweet chocolate soufflé with Earl Grey tea ice cream (make-ahead!)
- Crepes flambé filled with mascarpone, served with strawberries and rhubarb in an orange-Amaretto sauce
