This year, skip the brunch lines and treat the mom in your life to an extra-special Mother’s Day brunch and bubbles class! Our teacher for the day will be cookbook author Andrea Slonecker. Highlighting some of her favorite springtime brunch recipes from her new cookbook, Wine Food: New Adventures in Drinking and Cooking (co-written with Cookshop neighbor Dana Frank of Bar Norman), the menu will include Tropical Yogurt Parfaits with Seedy Cashew Crunch; a cheesy, layered Torta di Frittata with spring greens and mushrooms; and savory Falafel Waffles topped with a fresh salad of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and feta. You’ll get to enjoy a selection of white and rosé sparkling wines as you cook together and learn in this easy-like-Sunday-morning class. Then we’ll sit down and toast to mom before devouring the delicious meal. (Vegetarian and gluten-free friendly!)
