Summer 2021 Section 8, Starting on: 06/21/2021
Italian Wine Tasting with Matteo - Sangiovese and Montalcino: Matteo Sogne will welcome us at Carmine's Italian Restaurant for tastings of his favorite Italian wines. This event is the second in a series of 6 monthly events, from May through October. $10 Instructor Fee per event due at the time of registration; plus Special Fees to be paid upon arrival on the evening of. There will be 5-7 wines per event; pours will be light, with the option to "spit" the wine after tasting. Light appetizers will be served. Sangiovese, the native grape of Tuscany, the spine in the Chianti blend, is the main grape of Italy. Sangiovese is a grape that can change deeply based on where it grows, the exposition and the elevation. Monte Amiata, in Montalcino is a great expression of this. Same grape, same treatment, same process and totally different wines. In this class we will taste several different expressions of Sangiovese before landing in Montalcino. We will start from a white Sangiovese, go to Maremma Toscana and Bolgheri (where the famous Super Tuscans like Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Masseto, Solaia etc are made), Chianti, have a quick trip to Romagna and then end up in Montalcino passing through Montepulciano. In this event, Matteo wants to focus on the terroir aspect of the same grape, treated in the same way to end up in extremely different wines. $30 Special Fee to be paid directly to Matteo on June 21 (cash, check, Venmo, or Zelle only). If this class is full, please add your name to the waitlist; you may be able to join the class once enough people waitlist.

Summer 2021 Section 4, Starting on: 06/28/2021
Turkish Cuisine - Baklava & Borek: Baklava is a layered pastry dessert made of filo pastry, filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey. Borek is a family of baked filled pastries made of a thin flaky dough such as phyllo or yufka, typically filled with meat. Elif makes the best baklava in Salt Lake and we are lucky to have her share one of her simpler recipes with us. AND we will learn to make the savory Borek as well. An ingredient list will be emailed to registrants a week prior to class; you can follow along or simply watch.
Turkish Cuisine - Turkish Manti: You need to try Manti! Manti is an extraordinary dish from Turkey: tiny lamb-stuffed dumplings topped with sauces. In this class, Elif Elkin of Bohemian Baklava will show you how to make Manti with yoghurt and brown butter tomato sauce. You will receive an ingredient list a week before class; you can follow along or simply watch.
Italian Wine Tasting with Matteo - Sparkling: Matteo Sogne will welcome us at Carmine's Italian Restaurant for tastings of his favorite Italian wines. This event is the third in a series of 6 monthly events, from May through October. $10 Instructor Fee per event due at the time of registration; plus Special Fees to be paid upon arrival on the evening of. There will be 5-7 wines per event; pours will be light, with the option to "spit" the wine after tasting. Light appetizers will be served. In this event Matteo wants to focus on a style of wine that is becoming more and more common - bubbles. Who doesn't love a cold glass of sparkling wine on their porch during a hot summer evening? But what is in your glass? What is behind the bubbles? Sparkling wines can range from only a few $ to several thousands, but what is the difference that justifies this price range? Why do some bubbles feel softer and more velvety than others? During this class we will start a journey into the very deep (and sometimes uselessly complicated) world of sparkling wines, starting from the traditional Prosecco and Lambrusco, passing through Franciacorta and ending up in the region that everyone knows - Champagne! $30 Special Fees will be paid directly to Matteo on July 19 (cash, check, Venmo, or Zelle only). If this class is full, please add your name to the waitlist; you may be able to join the class once enough people waitlist.
