Alta Colina at Refugio
Sun Oct 25th, 2015
05:00 pm to 08:00 pm
The Art of Artisan Pizza: Hands-On with author/Refugio owner Brigit Binns
Thursday October 25 at 5pm in the Refugio Kitchen
Veteran pizzaiola Brigit doesn't "do" red sauce, as is tastily clear to everyone who's consumed her Calamari and chorizo pizza with Meier lemon and wine-braised fennel -- which was featured on the cover of Wine Enthusiast's July 2014 issue (and in a stop-action process shoot, here).
Brigit's take on Wine Country pizza is as far from pepperoni and red sauce as Pat Boone is from Paso Wine Man (Brigit's husband). In this class, learn the ultimate aspirational dough, a 48-hour cold-fermented, high-hydration concoction, a true boon for serious pizza-heads, plus a 3-hour version that's still plenty good. Every student will shape and top his or her own pizza, thus learning to work with this soft dough without tears or tears, plus how to top it lightly—with California-centric ingredients combined in fresh, appealing, and unexpected ways—to let the crust be the star. Now get ready to be the star of your own backyard.
* Meyer lemon, caramelized leek, and caper pizza with melty Taleggio
Pizzas learned (and eaten):
* Fresh fig, guanciale, and cherry tomato pizza with red onion, ricotta, and Pecorino (The Pig & The Fig)
* Calamari and chorizo pizza with fennel and Manchego
* The Salad Pizza (shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano and sea salt flatbread, topped with a delicate jumble of lightly-dressed garden greens)
Author of 29 cookbooks (including Williams-Sonoma's "Pizza," "The NEW Wine Country Cookbook: Recipes from California's Central Coast," and the recent Sunset Magazine title "Eating Up the West Coast"), Binns knows her pizza.
Special guest Bob Tillman of Alta Colina Winery will pair and pour several of his award-winning wines.
