Here in Canandaigua is the New York Wine and Culinary Center is a great place to learn about our state’s agriculture, as well as experience New York State wine and culinary trends. In downtown Canandaigua, about 12 miles from our bed and breakfast New York, the center holds all sorts of fun classes for learning about and enjoying food, specifically local food and products. This weekend they are having a tasting of NY beer and food with the class NY on Tap. Sample beers from New York State Breweries and enjoy local cuisine. The class includes a commemorative glass that you can keep to get a free beer the next day at the New York Beer Garden. This is going on all day from 12 pm to 5 pm.
There will be beer pairings, including the sure-to-be-delicious “Sausage, Cabbage & Beer” class from 6 to 8:30 pm. It’s a great weekend to be a beer drinker at our Upstate New York Bed and Breakfast.
This weekend is the also the beginning of the Kitchen Quick Takes, a basic class on culinary techniques that will help you impress in the kitchen. The classes are small, with only 16 people, and include a local wine paring. This weekend they will be using fresh ingredients from the Farm Market. On Halloween there is a tempting class on Gnocchi, one of my favorites!
We hope to see you at our New York Inn soon. Come for the lake and stay for the beer!
