Orange Olive Onion Salad

Spanish Paella

Affogato mocha

The salad combining oranges, olives, and onions with the flavor of balsamic vinegar is one of Chef Terre’s favorites. A nice Spanish paella with chicken, shrimp, and spicy sausage with a crispy rice edge “socarrat” is a fantastic dish to make for a group of friends.An affogato is a delicious combination of hot espresso melting ice cream as it is being consumed.  Ours is raised to elegant status with the addition of rum and bittersweet chocolate.

Lamb Dumplings / Spicy Salsa

Spicy Beef Salad

Blackberry Pudding Parfaits

These open face dumplings are great fun to make, who knew you have built in dumpling makers hanging off your wrists?  As a second course this is a perfect winter salad that is easy on the cook.  The blackberry pudding is intensely flavorful and can be prepared ahead of time then assembled just prior to serving.

Cooking Classes (see schedules below) - Winery kitchen cooking classes are scheduled regularly at First Colony Winery in the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont.  Each class is designed to offer expertise with a different menu and set of cooking secrets that will lead you towards ever-greater confidence in home entertainment. These intimate participation style classes culminate with sitting down to our delicious lunch or dinner, paired with the delightful offerings of the winery’s cellar. The camaraderie is effusive as we converse with the vintner while enjoying his and our creations.  Gift certificates are always available.

Special Events with a Class Motif provide an opportunity for the creation of an active, entertaining, and memorable occasion to celebrate your special event. Wedding Events - let the girls get away to have some fun (what the heck, bring along the boys, they may not always admit it but they have fun cooking too!)

Corporate Team Building - seeing your coworkers (yes, the bosses are included!) wearing aprons and up to their elbows in culinary creation (followed with great food and wine indulgence) can’t help but to raise the morale!

Parties Too Large for the Home - What a great way to enjoy a larger group of your friends!  The romance and mystique of a winery joined with the fun and excitement of great food and wine make for an activity that everyone will enjoy. It doesn’t get any better than this!
