      Mastering Braises with chef Johnny Gnall
      11:30 am-1:00 pm and 5:00-7:00 pm
      Relish Culinary Center
      14 Matheson Street
      $95

      Braising is a wonderful technique on so many levels. The "low and slow" cooking process tenderizes tough cuts like shoulders and legs, transforming less expensive cuts into rich, luscious melt-in-your-mouth dishes. Because braising of most meats cannot be done in less than 3 hours, this is a two-part class. Chef Johnny Gnall leads guests as they prepare three different braised dishes, learning the classic process for browning and braising to yield incredible flavor. Once the prep is done, the dishes are popped into the oven and participants are left to enjoy an afternoon in Healdsburg, strolling, wine tasting, shopping and soaking in the local color. We gather again in the evening to finish our meal—create a side dish and a salad to complement our braises—and savor the luscious meal together with lovely local wine.

      Snout-To-Tail Pork Butchering Workshop with chef Dino Bugica
      10:00 am-3:00 pm
      Relish Culinary Center
      14 Matheson Street, Healdsburg
      $599

      We're excited to offer another amazing hands-on butchering workshop where each participant will break down an entire 100-pound roaster pig. Chef Dino Bugica of Diavola Pizzeria starts the workshop with a discussion about butchering basics, including necessary equipment, safety and hygiene, knife usage, overview of primals and cuts, and other pertinent facts and advice. Armed with this information, each participant will move to his/her own 100-pound pig, sustainably-raised and humanely-slaughtered in Sonoma County. Guests will follow Dino’s butchering process, separating the primals, then identifying and trimming specific cuts of pork on their individual pigs. We’ll take a break mid-day for a pork-inspired lunch, delicious Diavola salumi, a hearty salad, bread, and other goodies before wrapping up all the cuts to take home. At the end of day, Dino will discuss curing and demonstrate how to make pancetta to cure at home. Each participant will take home all the cuts from their pig. 

      Participants are asked to bring their own sharp butcher knife, cleaver and a large cooler to transport the meat. We have chef knives and extra cleavers for use during the class, as needed, and we will provide ice for the cooler to keep the meat chilled for your drive home. One or two people can work on a single pig—how you divide or share the meat is up to you! This Relish class includes one glass of premium wine per person served with lunch to all participants over 21 years of age.

      Jendala Studio
      444 Moore Lane, Healdsburg
      $40

      Jendala Art Studio is happy to present this unique and powerful lecture/workshop which will address the core of The Awakening Approach, developed and taught by evolutionary astrologer Eric Meyers, MA. The focus is on spiritual realization. We will address the critical link between our emotional tendencies (Moon) and the lessons and challenges of our karma (Lunar Nodes), as we awaken into our enlightened selves (Sun). This will be an interactive, deep  and fun dialogue about the challenges and joys of spiritual evolution. Please have your time of birth so we can explore more deeply and personally.

      Eric Meyers is a full-time professional counseling astrologer, teacher author of 5 original books (including The Astrology of Awakening, Elements & Evolution, and Uranus). He has a M.A. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University and studied with astrologer Steven Forrest. Eric's focus is on how astrology relates to the process of spiritual awakening and the evolution of consciousness. He has pioneered a new approach weaving threads of modern psychology, universal spiritual principles and a contemporary understanding of science and nature. Eric has emerged as a progressive voice in renewing astrology for the 21st Century.
