Cooking Class: Gourmet Cooking With Wine

Chef Charles is eager to share the magic of cooking with wine with you in this informative cooking class. You'll learn how to turn a simple dish into something spectacular as you incorporate the chef's tips for enhancing savory and sweet dishes with wine. Begin with a tender scallops pan-fried in a Champagne-butter sauce with a dash of heavy cream and fresh herbs. Then prepare a rich rice dish with chardonnay and pecorino cheese. For dessert, create a delicious chocolate cake with port wine as the secret ingredient and top the cake with crème anglaise.
