The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) presents Conversations at Copia: Terroir
Napa, CA,- The CIA at Copia, The Culinary Institute of America's newest venture in downtown Napa will present Conversations at Copia: Terroir on Sunday, May 6, 2018. Offered each month, Conversations at Copia, aims to teach attendees about our food system and how it affects us through discussion, art, film, and food and beverage tastings.
During "Terroir," notable presenters will examine what terroir is and how a geographic region's climate, terrain, sunlight, and soil affect the flavor of what is grown there, including grapes, olives, and tea. The featured event includes a panel discussion and walk around reception in Copia's new, state-of-the-art teaching kitchen, where guests can mingle with presenters and chefs while sampling local food and wines.
Additional activities include a honey and cheese tasting with Sue Conley (Cowgirl Creamery) and Robert MacKimmie (City Bees), a Copia garden tour with Matt Gunn (CIA) and Jon Brzycki (CIA), and a family-friendly mac and cheese class for kids.
Featured presenters include Randall Grahm (Bonny Doon Vineyards), John Williams (Frog's Leap Winery), Sue Conley (Cowgirl Creamery), Alexandra Kicenik Devarenne (Calathena), Jon Brzycki (CIA), Matt Gunn (CIA), Jordan MacKay (Author), and Tony Tellin (Smith Tea).
Tickets will be sold separately for each of Terroir's events and classes. For a full list of events and to purchase tickets, click here. Future Conversations at Copia events include "Women! Trailblazers and the New Wave" (August 4-5), "Why We Eat What We Eat" (September 8-9), "Climate" (October 6-7), and "Heritage Breeds" (November 3-4).
