Francis Ford Coppola Winery has partnered with Food Network Kitchen for the first in a series of live classes to feature holiday recipes paired with Francis Ford Coppola wines. Food Network’s Amanda Freitag, Chopped judge and award-winning cookbook author, has created three holiday recipes to complement hand-selected wines from The Family Coppola portfolio.
Recipe and The Family Coppola Wine Pairings:
Diamond Collection Chardonnay, Crab Cake Bites with a Spiced Mayo
Sofia Rosé, Seckel Pear with Honey, Whipped Goat Cheese and Crispy Prosciutto
2016 Pitagora Red Blend, Chorizo in a Blanket with Herbed Agave Sauce
These recipes will be prepared by Chef Freitag in three live episodes set to stream on the app on December 2nd at 9am, 12pm, and 3pm (ET) from the Food Network Kitchen NYC studio. The classes will be available on-demand following the live premiere. Along with unique content, the Francis Ford Coppola Winery will host an intimate Sip and Savor party at their Sonoma County location on December 7th.
In advance of the live classes on December 2nd, consumers can purchase the featured Coppola wines and join the fun while they prepare Chef Freitag’s recipes in their own kitchen. The wines will be available through the Francis Ford Coppola Winery e-commerce site, local stores throughout the country, as well as through drizly.com, the largest on-demand alcohol delivery marketplace, from which you can have wine delivered to your door in under 60 minutes.
“This is the future…and I love it! Engaging, interactive and delicious entertainment. It’s a unique partnership and I’m excited to see the results. We’re always looking for new platforms to connect directly with our consumers in more innovative ways,” states Jennifer Leitman, Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s EVP, Strategic Partnerships.
Chef Freitag will attend the December 7th (2-4pm PT) Sip and Savor celebration at Francis Ford Coppola Winery where she will hold a live cooking demonstration of the appetizers and discuss recipes that are perfect for holiday entertaining paired with Francis Ford Coppola wines.
