Learn about Lebanese food and mezze at a Virtual Happy Hour from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 6, which includes a bottle of the 2017 GSM from Passaggio Wines delivered to your door.

Chef Cristina Topham presents a live demonstration of two recipes: Muhammara, a luscious spread made with roasted red pepper and walnuts, and Fetayer, a traditional spinach pie with sumac and lemon.

Your wine, a distinctive blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, will arrive with a box of sweet Baklava made by our talented culinary team. This event makes a great gift for Mother’s Day and provides lots of inspiration for upcoming picnics!

Chef Cristina, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York City, honed her skills as chef to wineries, superyachts and high-profile spots such as the erstwhile Julia’s Kitchen at Napa’s Copia center. A 2017 visit to Beirut, where her family has its roots, inspired her to rewrite the menu at Spread Catering to focus on elevated Lebanese cuisine.

We’ll also chat with Cindy Cosco of Passaggio, who recently opened a tasting room at historic Treasure Island in San Francisco.

All proceeds benefit shelter, housing and training programs at Homeward Bound of Marin. Please register online or phone 415-382-3363 x243.
