The meal will be paired with wines from Dos Cabezas Winery and Callaghan Vineyards. Guest will also receive all of the day's recipes. $45 per person. Class starts at 2 p.m. Click here to reserve your spot. 

Fancy Poppers

Food blog Make it Naked has taken your typical jalapeno popper to a new level -- it involves goat cheese and a grill. Jalapenos are stuffed with a tangy mixture of cream cheese, goat cheese and sharp cheddar, bacon, roasted garlic and onion. Stick those babies on the grill for about eight minutes and you have yourself a batch of fancy jalapeno poppers. Although we wouldn't suggest you do anything with jalapenos naked -- that could get painful.
