Following on the success of the 2012 season The Little Mexican Cooking School and Casa Caribe are pleased to present the 2013 WINE TASTING AND FOOD PAIRING EVENTS.- in conjunction with La Europea and Cordon Bleu School of Gastronomy. There will be 7 Friday nights with 2 hours events to be held over February, March and April on the terrace of Casa Caribe. Be set for a civilised evening of history and appreciation of wine. “The best fun I had on holiday” and “I have been looking forward to this all year” and “What a fun, interesting night” are typical of the guest’s comments.
Catriona Brown, proprietor, says “In keeping with our tradition of enhancing the food culture of the region, our Wine Tastings offer an accessible, fun and educational experience. Tourists and locals alike more and more look to bring a learning experience home with them – something they can share with friends and family ” .
This year there is a completely different set of wines suggested by the management of La Europea as the best examples of the varieties, students will be able to have rapid home delivery of all the wines offered for tastings. The Little Mexican Cooking School is working with the Cordon Bleu school of Gastronomy who will be providing the wine presenters.
Each class will have at least 5 wines representative of the region or variety and will cover the history, viticulture, production methods and other special information. Each class will have at least 3 different food plates matched to the wines and presented by Chef Cristobal Tamariz.
