New: Community Cheers
Through the chaos and tragedy around us, Pourtal wanted to come up with a way to continue connecting with fellow foodies, wine lovers, and travelers even if that meant doing things a little differently. We came up with the idea of Community Cheers - a virtual place to share recipes, wines, sake, pairings, and more with our community.
We hope that our weekly cooking classes and tastings provide you with a sense of connection and cheer even in these trying times. The Pourtal team is excited to see how Community Cheers continues to evolve and grow to reach more fellow adventurers.
What We Will Be Doing
Weekly virtual, community cooking lessons with Julie Lizzy & Monica
Live on Facebook every Friday 3pm PST
Recipes will have Gluten-free alternatives and utilize simple ingredients you probably already have at home
Each week will feature a wine pairing - stock up with our Community Kitchen set to taste along each week
Recipes from each Community Kitchen episode will be featured on our website.
We will also give some background on the wine pairing so you can replicate when you are on your own!
Recipe cards will also be available for you to keep on hand for future cooking
Community Cheers - Tastings
Our resident wine & sake experts, Lizzy Butler and Monica Samuels, will take you through a selection of wines or sake during a virtual, community-based tasting every week
Live on Instagram - Schedule TBD
Our experts will give background about the wine/sake, climate, origin, tasting techniques and so much more
Upcoming wines and sake will be posted so you can order ahead.
