COOKING PARTIES
Every month Messina Hof hosts a Cooking Party, a demonstration focusing on a specific cuisine or technique. If you’re a beginner, we’ve got you covered with beginner lessons and if you’re already quite the chef you’ll appreciate the huge selection of information on spices, cuts of meat, tools and more. Each guest will receive a recipe booklet to take home AND will have a chance to register to win awesome culinary door prizes.

FEBRUARY COOKING PARTY: Chinese New Year
This month we will be cooking traditional dishes for the Chinese New Year. As always, Messina Hof wine will be featured in the dish.

MENU

1st Course – LONG NOODLE SALAD

Finished with a Soy Sherry Vinaigrette. (Long noodles symbolize hope for life so they are not to be broken before cooking, and should be eaten as a whole strand.)

2nd Course- CHICKEN SPRING ROLL

Braised shredded chicken breast tossed in a ginger sauvignon Blanc sauce with cabbage, carrots and rice noodles. Deep fried to a golden brown. (The spring roll is meant to represent bars of gold bullion and a prosperous coming new year.)

3rd Course – WHOLE ROASTED FISH

In a scallion ginger broth laced with Rieslingerved with sticky rice and sautéed Chinese mustard greens. (The fish is served whole to symbolize family unity and leftovers are encouraged for the next day to signify prosperity in the coming year.)

4th Course – STEAMED RICE CAKE

Served with a citrus mistella compote.
