You're all about an apple-filled autumn, but the idea of mulling around an orchard sipping on the same old cider seems a little flat. If you're looking for a bushel full of fun, food, and fermented fruit, be sure to make this hard-core autumn Adventure your first pick: a three-hour cooking class and gourmet six-course dinner with hard cider pairings courtesy of Crispin Cider.
We'll start by heading to Saga Hill Cooking & Events downtown, where our applejack army will be waiting to greet us and check us in. As guests roll in, we'll bob around the room at a welcome reception, where we'll enjoy our first refreshing cider tastings paired with an amuse bouche (crostini topped with brandied fig jam, shaved Pecorino Romano, and sliced Granny Smith apples) will really get our juices flowing.
With our taste buds on full apple alert, we'll peel off for a three-hour cooking class, where we'll prepare and enjoy a five-course "Proper English Supper," with each inspired course perfectly paired with 5 oz. tastings of Crispin Cider's unique selections. Courses and pairings to include: tagliatelle with braised pork shoulder and tobacco-smoked paprika paired with Honey Crisp Cider; cotton candy granita paired with Brut "Champagne" Cider; Mulligatawny with fresh lavender and lemongrass paired with Cho-Tokkyo Fermented Rice Cider; braised beef and cardamom with buttered baby new potatoes paired with Lansdowne Irish Stout Cider; and Glastonbury cheddar with Valrhona white chocolate and a juniper Berry gelée paired with English Perry Cider. After the meal, we'll head home with not only full bellies but a 22 oz. bottle of Crispin Cider to enjoy at home and our LivingSocial tasting glass to sip it with. This Adventure is sure to leave us fall-filled to the core.
