We would all like to have an in-person party as usual, but that is not going to happen this spring. And many of you have said you miss Lobsterfest, so …
We are hosting a very special “surf and turf” online cooking class on May 28th starting at 5pm.
This will be a fun, entertaining and rewarding event. Your ticket includes:
- all the ingredients (even the spices) supplied for a multi-course, surf and turf, high-quality meal
with the lobster once again provided by Caudle’s Catch and shipped to you pre-cooked
- wine parings for the meal as recommended by the Opimian Society,
Canada’s largest wine club
- delivery, the day before the event, to the location you specify when you register,
all the ingredients required to prepare the meal
- a 2-hour online cooking class hosted by our friends at Culinary Studio
- a free 1-year, introductory membership in Opimian
- MANY door prizes of considerable value
- a donation to the charitable projects our Rotary club supports
If you would like to see the meal plan, including the wine pairings recommended, click on the image to the right and it will download a document with details on both. There are mulitiple wine options provided, with a range of prices. You only need one wine from each category to make the meal complete.
