A Food and Wine Experience at Grande Lakes
8:30 am - 3:30 pm
The day will begin at 8:30 am with the Healthy Start Buffet at Citron, an American Brasserie located at the JW Marriott Orlando that specializes in seasonal and local products. Following breakfast, the cooking class will get underway at the hotel’s featured restaurant, PRIMO, by Melissa Kelly.
At PRIMO they grow and source the freshest seasonal and organic products. They incorporate that into every dish on the menu. Their “sensibility” philosophy is the basis of the cooking class with Southern Italian recipes. In the three-hour course, the Chef will advise convenient ways to source sensibly with seasonal and organic product in group and one-on-one interaction.
The class will kick-off with a glass of champagne followed by a walk in the garden to retrieve ingredients for the day's recipes. A recipe packet, as well as suggested reading will be provided, featuring gourmet creations that reflect seasonal products. The Chef’s philosophy will be followed by step-by-step, close up instruction and team building demonstration on creating “the perfect dish.”
After you have enjoyed your freshly made pasta, the group will head to the Primo Terrace for an educational wine class with a Sommelier on how to properly pair wines with food. Following the session and wine tastings, the day will conclude at 3:30 pm.
Cost: $129 per person (includes breakfast, cooking class, lunch, wine tasting and admittance to NEC receptions)
