Too often when we think of food at the beach we think of ants amuck in our to-go cups. But Loa Tree Presents has a different idea, and so are offering two afternoons at Orella Ranch in Gaviota that will unite gourmet and good view in ways you always hoped were possible. On October 7, Edible Bliss from the Earthen Oven will feature the food stylings of Simone Temkin of Abundance Catering as she leads a class that features chicken marbella (fresh herbs, white wine, Spanish olives, and prunes). On October 28, Autumn Harvests Explored will feature Brian Congdon of Duo taking participants from fish to field with a meal centered on herb butter-roasted snapper, pumpkin fondant, sage, and pink peppercorn sauce. Terra Basche, lead culinary creator of this event, said to expect “much more than your average cooking class; we will together sit and enjoy the feast, along with wine to complement a festive afternoon.”
Culinary Secrets Unveiled takes place October 7 and 28. The cost is $60 per person including food and wine, or $100 per person for both events. Call 966-5521 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
