Head Chef of Purple Seattle Harry “Coach” Mills will be joined by Purple’s Wine Director Chris Horn as we shop Pike Place Market for local seasonal ingredients and learn how to pair our meal with EFESTE wines from Woodinville. We go from menu planning to meal creation as we head back to Pike Place Market’s Atrium kitchen to cook up a three course meal using our procurred market ingredients. We then enjoy our beautiful meal together.
This class uncovers how wine and food flavors can work symbiotically and how to think of wine pairing in a less intimidating way. This cooking class format is more demonstration based in order to get the most out of the wine teachings and ad-hoc menu conceptualization using our Northwest produce and proteins from local farmers.
This 3 course menu will be using recipes from Coach Harry and Chris’s new cookbook called Cook+Cork: A Chef and Sommelier Spill the Secrets of Food and Wine Pairing.
Tax added at checkout.

The winery and tasting room are located in Woodinville, WA.
