Euphemia Haye’s annual “Lesson Luncheon” series opener, “Forks & Corks,” taught participants to make three traditional French dishes and then pair them with wine. About a dozen people turned out Jan. 25, for the demonstration led by Chef Raymond Arpke and sommelier Chris Phelps, of Napa Valley’s Swanson Vineyards.
On Friday’s menu: Belgian endive salad with a raspberry walnut vinaigrette; roast rack of lamb persillé with truffle oil, mashed potatoes, wild mushrooms and béarnaise sauce; and Paris-Brest, a light pastry with almond cream; paired with a pinot grigio, cabernet sauvignon and late-harvest chardonnay, respectively. Attendees received a personal tutorial with recipes to take home, not to mention a gourmet lunch.
