Oaxacan Dinner

Oaxacan Dinner

We're going to Oaxaca! 

Traveling is one of the most inspiring acts for me. There are new sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that dazzle and enliven every sense. Particularly when you are traveling to a place so different from the one you call home.

In Oaxaca we will be taking classes on Mole and Mezcal. We will be scouring the markets for new ingredients to infuse into our cooking. We'll learn the secrets of this honored cuisine from the people who live it and cook it everyday. 

And we want to share this experience with you!

Tickets are now on sale for this unique dining experience. Follow along while we spend 3 glorious days in Mexico ( on Instagram - @ashrod & @julieahubert) then come join Julie and I (Ashley) at the table while we delight the senses with all that we learned while in Oaxaca. 

Dinner and Beverage Pairing $95 per person (Tax and Tip Included)

Get your tickets here! Hurry - this one will go fast!

Wine Dinner with Lange Estate Winery

Wine Dinner with Lange Estate Winery

Sit back, relax and enjoy a multi-course meal paired with the wines from Lange Estate Winery. Jesse Lange will be with us that evening as well to discuss their wines. 

More about Lange:

Thirty years ago, Don and Wendy Lange founded their winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. The year 1987 marked the Langes’ first vintage and consisted of the three varietals they embrace today: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay.

New-world pioneers in the production of Pinot Gris, Lange Estate was the first to release a barrel-fermented reserve–an effort Matt Kramer of the WINE SPECTATOR calls “a bench-mark bottling.” Don Lange’s work as a winemaker has been termed “brilliant” by Hugh Johnson, and the WINE ENTHUSIAST proclaimed Lange Estate to be “one of the great Pinot Noir producers in the United States.”

Lange Estate is known for crafting beautifully balanced wines from fruit grown on the winery Estate, located in the heart of the prestigious Dundee Hills appellation. To further supplement our case production, the Langes purchase additional fruit from the best vineyards in the surrounding area. Long-standing relationships with these blue-ribbon sites have helped the winery establish a well-deserved reputation for consistency and complexity in the wines.

 

Tickets $95 each (tax and gratuity included)
