A North American Dinner with Seattle Cider Company
Instructor: Matt Chapman, representative from Seattle Cider Company with Barb Agee and Leanne Willard, your chefs for the evening

Seattle Cider Company is Seattle’s first cidery since Prohibition, bringing true craft cider back to Seattle and across the country. With their flavorful, small-batch cider, Seattle Cider’s initial offerings broke the mold of overly sweet cider, bringing the natural flavors of Washington apples to the forefront. Join Matt for an informative evening, sampling innovative cider matched with a menu that reflects the best of the North American continent. Barb and Leanne pair Mexico’s Queso Fundido with Chorizo, Jalapeño and Cilantro with the Three Pepper Hard Cider. Canada’s Soupe d'hiver au pistou, winter vegetable soup is drizzled with basil-mint pistou, paired with the Basil Mint Cider. Seattle Cider’s Berry Rosé Hard Cider accompanies a Kale Salad with Apples, Dried Cranberries, and Cheddar from the United States, while their Semi Sweet Hard Cider perfectly complements Pepita Mole-Spiced Roasted Turkey Breast with Mexican-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. A lovely Canadian Maple Tart with Oatmeal Cookie Crust is made even better paired with Oaked Maple Hard Cider! This is an evening you won’t want to miss! BSC page link

Soitza’s Hands-On Tamales
Instructor: Soitza Devlin

Often served at Mexican Christmas celebrations, tamales are a favorite of many--but the thought of making them yourself can be intimidating. Soitza gives step- by-step instruction on how to make your own masa and then turn it into Homemade Turkey Tamales, served with a holiday-inspired Red Sauce and Green Sauce. You’ll also be making traditional Rajas con Queso Tamales, stuffed with poblanos and cheese. She’ll offer steaming, filling, and serving suggestions, and you’ll get to taste what you create when you’re done! Soitza will also stir up some Champurrado, a warm chocolate-based Mexican drink thickened with corn flour, perfect for the colder months ahead! BSC page link
