How to Drink in Summer, Thurs 16th & Fri 17th June 2011
You’ll be welcomed with an aperitif and a quick word on choosing wine glasses, then guided through a fascinating tasting of four glorious summer wines – Victoria’s picks for the season – with canapés that match. We’ll move on to delicious Lebanese mint and lemon coolers and then make our own Pimm’s from scratch to compare with the original. To finish there will be stunning watermelon martinis with Feta, olive and mint salad. We’ll keep you fed with snacks throughout the class and send you home with a pack of Victoria’s recommendations and my recipes.
Victoria Moore has been writing about drinking since 1998 when she began a column in the New Statesman.
