Celebrate Bastille Day with French Food and Wine Pairings

America has a long history of friendship with France. Our own Independence Day owes much to the support of the country and its people during the Revolutionary War. We're celebrating Bastille Day with the cuisine and wine celebrated around the world. Join us for one or both of these delicious French culinary events as we join in the annual fun.

4 p.m. Happy Birthday France - Appetizers and Wine Pairing

Our wine supplier will be at Tasty Venues for France's Bastille Day. He will join Chef Cinzia in presenting a celebratory wine and food pairing featuring classic French dishes as appetizers.

7 p.m. Mangez-vous Francaise? Happy Birthday France!

Bastille Day is a big celebration in France. We will join in the festivities with a full French dinner paired with fabulous French wines. 

Eat and Learn: Cooking Parties!
What is a cooking party?
Cooking parties are cooking classes with more - more information, more exploration, more fun!
Going beyond merely how to, we talk about the why, the significance, the culture, art, travel, relevant food issues of the day, famous chefs and cooks, influential cuisines, and any other kind of food talk you wish to engage in.

Watch our calendar for special culinary events


Our culinary explorations repertoire extends to cooking parties, guest chef events, book club, live entertainment, tea parties, current and historical events celebrations, and cultural intersections with food - plus whatever else we can think of!

The July meeting: Feasting on Asphalt: the River Run by Alton Brown  

Alton Brown and his motorcycle-mounted crew are off on a thousand-mile, south-to-north journey that follows America’s first “superhighway”―the Mississippi. Starting at the great river’s delta on the Gulf of Mexico and ending up near its headwaters in Minnesota, Alton and buddies travel the heartland’s byways to scout out the very best of roadside food―and to get to know the people who spend their lives preparing and serving it.

Appetizers and light fare available for purchase; wine and beer also available.
