LATE SUMMER 2015 Schedule

August 23, 2015  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Panzanella Salad

Grilled Chicken Diavolo

Chargrilled Summer Vegetable Salad

Browned Butter Toffee Tartlets

This menu features a grilled bread with assorted heirloom tomatoes salad, a grilled take on the classic chicken diavolo, and ribboned summer vegetables with fresh herbs.  The tasty little tartlets are just the right amount of sweet to finish a meal.

September 13, 2015  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Tuna White Bean Salad

Pork Piccata

Grilled Okra

Italian Baked Peaches

Tuna and white beans were meant to be together on the plate wether as a starter or a main.  The bright citrus flavor combined with the ease of preparation of piccata will make this a favorite go-to recipe.  You may not be a fan of okra yet, but this technique will convert you.  It’s peach season so we need another way to enjoy this spectacular fruit.

October 4, 2015  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Thai Peanut Soup with Crabmeat

Pork Pad Thai

Roast Figs with Grand Marnier

We’ll infuse a traditional Virginia soup with Thai flavors and toppings for a fusion sensation.  The Thai classic rice noodle dish is at once sweet, sour, salty, and hot!  We’ll say goodbye to fig season with a tasty little dessert.

October 18, 2015  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Muffuletta Pull Apart Bread

Cioppino (Seafood Stew)

Rustic Pear Tart / Saffron Pastry

We’ll travel from N’Awlins to San Fran with this American menu.  The hearty first course is like a deconstructed - reconstructed muffuletta sandwich.  The seafood stew originated in San Francisco and remains a hometown favorite, it’s chock full of fish and shellfish.  Saffron in the pastry dough adds color and a delicate flavor that highlights the pears.

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!
