Although not officially over yet, for all practical purposes summer is history.
The cool evenings hint at the coming seasons of frost and festivities and I find my thoughts turning from boat and beach to heart and hearth. Even my taste buds have noticed the changing season as I find less beer and more wine on my table.
As if to pry free my one last finger of a grip on summer, Ginny Clancy of the Stony Brook University Center for Wine, Food and Culture sent me her Fall schedule of Long Island food and wine classes.
At $55 ($45 for two or more people, $40 for three or more classes) they are the most reasonably priced wine tasting classes you’ll find anywhere on Long Island.
Classes I’ve attended:
- Chef John Ross on Food, Wine and Integrity on the North Fork
- An Italian Heritage of Flavor
- From Aroma to Bouquet: How Wines Age
- Creating a Regional Cuisine – CoolFish
First class starts October 5th. Register early because they fill up fast!
