Latest and greatest local food news...
Main Course California has updated their lunch menu- adding a Chicken Caprese Sandwich and a California Healthy Chicken sandwich. If these new additions are half as lovable and delectable as their other sandwiches and salads, we're in for a real treat. If you're not familiar with their food, you can check out this review I wrote a few months ago. They are also offering a one-of-a-kind Tequila-centric cooking class this Friday, July 24th from 6-9pm. Students will be making and enjoying such delicacies as gazpacho with drunken prawns; tequila tomato caprese salad; chile rellenos and raisin-tequila salsa, and tequila; and serrano soaked fruits with agave nectar and coconut mousse. Call 658-8900 or email info@MainCourseCA.com to sign up.
Paradise Pantry is holding a Summer Wine and Food Pairing dinner on Tuesday, July 28th. The mind-boggling menu includes himachi & salmon tartares towered with avocado and sesame crisps; spicy crab cakes served with seasoned crème fraiche; chilled corn and vanilla bean chowder with roast ham & rock shrimp; and piquillo pepper relleno stuffed with chorizo, summer squash, and goat cheese. And each of these courses will be paired with a different, and perfectly matched wine. Call them at 641-9440 to make a reservation.
