These are events, not classes; join us for informal, informative dinners, prepared by chef Lynne Vea. PCC wine stewards pour and talk about the beverages they chose to complement the dishes. Together, they demonstrate how to match wine or beer with a dish and alternately create dishes to complement the beverage. Please limit your registration in each event to two people.
