The Marriage of Food & Wine @ The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone
Dec 7 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Spend a fun afternoon exploring and refining your culinary sensory abilities. During this class, Chef John Ash will review the dynamics of how we taste, and then dive into an interactive exploration of how food and wine work with each other. You’ll come away with some basic templates to operate from to help you put food and wine together successfully. And you’ll gain a much better understanding of how to make positive matches happen, whether you’re dining at a restaurant or in your own home.

The Ranch provides a setting for change and renewal, and we hand the keys to you. The day’s choices are all yours to make…and many are wonderful to behold. Be sure to consider them all as equally important: food, nutrition, exercise, rest and relaxation, education, expression… and above all, taking in the beauty of our untrammeled natural world that welcomes you “home again” to your true, rested, and reenergized self. – See more at: http://www.rancholapuerta.com/come-to-the-ranch/first-time-visitors/#sthash.vpij3OiL.dpuf
