Welcome to the 2nd edition of Party Pairings: Entertaining with Vegan Food & Wine

Every month a different chef will be featured and will do a cooking demonstration. The topics will range from how to put together a cheese platter, how to make cheeses, fancy & easy appetizers to make to go along with your platers, tips on how to throw the perfect cocktail event, etc.

We will sample different wines, cheeses, and appetizers in a relaxed and fun environment alongside other veg wine and food lovers. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and business connections.  Bring some business cards if you have any.

About this event:

Eric Cohen, owner of Justice Grace Vineyards will talk about wine additives and controversial topics from behind the scenes of the wine industry. 

The United States rapidly became the top wine consuming country in the world, but how much do consumers know about what's in the wines they are drinking? The recent media frenzy about concerns over arsenic in wines only highlights the vast difference between what folks think wine is, and how it's generally made today. Come learn about vegan wines, how wines are made, and what choices winemakers make to create one of life's greatest simple pleasures.

Eric Cohen, owner/ winemaker for boutique 1.5 person (he and young son) Bay Area winery, Justice Grace Vineyards, began making wine in 2003. The winery, while small, is unique in many ways, and proud to be among the leaders in Natural Wines with very few ingredients. We feature distinct winemaker blends using uncommon varietals, with a particular specialty in California's own heirloom varietal Petite Sirah. Our wines are made and packaged with love, and include LGBT front label options, one-of-a-kind fabric capsules, and transparent ingredient labeling, for which we were included in SFMOMA's curated exhibit about wine in 2011. Our two brands, "Shoe Shine Wine" and "Solidarity Wine" are dedicated to being a resource and catalyst for Social Justice.

Cooking Demo with Charlie Fields (Vegan Iron Chef 2015 Competitor):

Charlie will be showing you how to make Hunky Fungi!

Who wants a plain old stuffed mushroom when you can have a Hunky Fungi!? It's a cheesy, sausage-y, umami, easy and lick-your-lips delish hors d'oeuvre that will impress your guests. They won't believe it's vegan!

Plus it is so easy and quick to make that even the most amateur cook can whip it up without breaking a sweat. And no chopping! It's the perfect party dish because you can prepare it ahead of time then toss it in the oven when your first guests arrive. When you take it out, the oohs and ahs will be deafening.

About Charlie: 

By day, Charlie crunches numbers for a healthcare nonprofit in San Francisco, and by night he dances and sings in musical theater around the Bay Area. But in his spare time, he loves to cook and bake. His special interests include fried foods, artisan vegan cheese, and punchbowl cakes. A vegan for over ten years, he won the Holiday Dessert Contest at his last workplace two years in a row. Favorite local meals include the king trumpet mushrooms at Millennium, the Reuben sandwich at Nature's Express, and the fritters at Donut Farm. Charlie lives in San Francisco and is proud to take care of the two cutest and sweetest dogs in the world, Fajita and Tortilla.
