I'm tryin to get in the Homebrew class next year. Hopefully it will be informative (and delicious). How was the wine tasting class?

Also, someone mentioned Popovers earlier in this thread. If you haven't had them before try em. I had some up in Acadia National Park at the Jordan Pond House--unbelievably delicious.

Just saw this post...

I thought the Wine Tasting class was great. Well organized, and well taught. It's NOT a BS class. Most people take it pass fail, but I thought of that as a cop out, I ended up with a B. You've got to treat it like any other class and make an effort to learn what's being taught, rather than just taste wine every couple weeks. What I enjoyed the most were the tastings. I think they were planned very well and showed clear differences from one wine to the next. The most interesting was the tasting session centered on tastes, rather than the wines. One wine was slightly modified (blind) to accent characteristics like bitter, sweet, sour, and 'mouthfeel' or body. Following that was a food pairing tasting that was very informative. I'd definitely recommend it, I even keep the textbooks in the kitchen with the rest of my cookbooks.
