How to Drink in Autumn, Thurs 6th & Fri 7th Oct 2011
You’ll be welcomed with a Cava-Calva aperitif and then we’ll taste and compare three different chenin blancs and learn all about this grape. Moving on there will be a selection of sloe gins to compare and of course tips for making your own, plus Victoria’s favourite cocktail using the purple infusion – sloe gin sours.
We’ll then make our way through several different styles of sherry, with tapas to match each one, and learn all about this unique set of wines. To finish we’ll indulge in some Pedro Ximenez ice cream. Yum. We’ll keep you fed with snacks throughout the class and send you home with a pack of Victoria’s recommendations and my recipes.
