I am finally doing my first cooking class/pop up supper club to benefit the Bastrop County Emergency Food Pantry. This is event is a trial run for a small group at my home. I am opening a cooking school on my ranch in September and am planning to do a larger event for Hunger Action Month.
As stated on feedingamerica.org, “September is Hunger Action Month-a month where people all over America stand together with Feeding America and the nationwide network of food banks to fight hunger. It’s a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis, and dedicate ourselves to a solution.”
My trial event is this Saturday, July 27th 2019. I will be featuring an Italian menu paired with Texan wines from Messina Hof.
I am happy to say that the event sold out before I even had a chance to send out e-mail invites. Believe it or not, besides being delicious, the whole menu is gluten free. The main course is the first recipe that I posted on my blog, Stuffed Dover Sole.
I am in charge of the food and my husband is in charge of the drinks. In addition to the wine, he will be making cocktails and mocktails. Some of our guests don’t consume alcohol, so we want to accommodate everybody.
Tresha Silva, the director of the food bank, has kindly offered to help me serve. I am very excited that I finally managed to make time in my life to do this. There is a lot of work to do between now and the event. I will let all of you know how it went. I have never done a cooking class/pop up supper club before.
WISH ME LUCK !!!
