Join us again at West Elm Market in DUMBO for a class full of natural wines from around the world! Also enjoy a 15% off anything in the store after class.
We will chat all about natural wines, organically grown grapes and biodynamic wine making while sipping them with delicious food from guest Chef Gellert!
The Paleo diet is a natural approach to food that has become lost in our modern world of refined foods and sugar and Chef Gellert is here to guide us in how to enjoy eating Paleo style!
We will have at least four beverage selections paired with four Paleo bites to show how the wine and the food can enhance and compliment each other.
We will cover such topics as:
-Guides to pairing your food and wine
-What kinds of foods are in the Paleo diet
-guides to buying natural wines
-hints on how to start your own Paleo diet
Perfect for those eating gluten free and dairy free, along with anyone interested in finding out more about these types of diets and drinking good wines.
