     THE BEST OF BISTRO
"The world of imagination is boundless." --- Jean Jaques Rousseau

February 27, 28 & March 1, 2009

Classic French Bistro cooking, the very essence of comfort food, where authenticity and tradition reign supreme. Superbly paired with wines from Champagne, The Rhone, Bandol, and Burgundy’s small centuries old wineries.

CIAO ITALIA
"What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything."
--- Federico Fellini

March 13, 14 & 15, 2009  
l   March 27, 28 & 29, 2009

The whole world loves Italian cooking with its simplicity, intensity and spirit. And, so do we.! It is the essence and anticipation of Spring’s foods, especially when paired with Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, Barolo and Barbaresco.

A "GIRLS ONLY" WEEKEND
"Almost everyone has something secret they like to eat."
--- MFK Fisher

April 3, 4 & 5, 2009

For "women" of all ages - Wickwood's and Julee's most private recipes (aka: not in any cookbook) will be shared and paired with favored libations while "The Final Four" entertains the men at home.

THE TAPAS OF SPAIN
"It takes a long time to become young." --- Pablo Picasso

April 17, 18 & 19, 2009

Intensely flavored “small plates” that are a terrific trend to add to your own repertoire. They make a party or an everyday meal exciting!! Paired with Tempranillo, Granache, and vintage Sherry.

"I cook with wines. Sometimes I even add it to the food."
 ---
W. C. Fields

"Joining me will be Wine Pros Norm Campbell and Charlie Elkins to conduct our Wine Tastings and pair authentic “terrior” wines from Neil Rosenthal, Kermit Lynch and Martha’s Vineyard, with every course of our menus; the extraordinary Chef, Matt Millar of the Journeyman will prepare a special dinner; and the sophisticated Mary Rademacher and Mark Kahny will croon a little jazz and cabaret on into the night.

One of the reasons I love to cook is to learn. It’s an opportunity to satisfy my insatiable curiosity --- and simultaneously my appetite! Some of the best recipes happen simply through serendipity. The joy is to that I get to share it all with some of the most interesting people around --- food and wine people. Come celebrate the good life with us!

"Wine improves with age --- I like it more the older I get."

The Weekend

l

Friday evening, the weekend will begin with a Wine Tasting paired with Hors d’oeuvres and Supper at Wickwood featuring cuisine from the featured country. Our wine experts will lead us through the Tasting and answer questions along the way. Later that evening the incredible Mary Rademacher and Mark Kahney will croon a tune or two --- and we’ve been known to roll up the rug and sing along.

l

Saturday Morning we’ll have a vintage Champagne Tasting, matched to a very special Wickwood Brunch. Afterwards, Julee will lead a two hour cooking class based on authentic dishes of the country we’re “visiting” that weekend. By noon, everyone will be out wandering through the galleries and shops of Saugatuck and Douglas. Throughout the weekend there will be several surprise spontaneous Food Tastings conducted by Julee.

l

Saturday Evening we will all be entertained at The Journeyman Café where Chef Mathew Millar and his staff will prepare a special Winemakers Dinner with the menu based on our featured country and wine flights from his own distinctive wine list. Chef Millar certainly “lives within his harvest” by cooking globally yet shopping locally. This will surely be a superb dinner.

l

Sunday morning Wickwood’s Traditional Champagne Brunch will be served followed by gifts and goodbyes. We promise, it will have been a weekend to remember!!!!
