The kids have gone back to school. Why don’t you? Sign up for a class at Relish Culinary and learn how to make “Homemade Mozzarella, Quick and Easy.” Fresh Italian Mozzarella usually takes three days, but this version takes less than one hour. The class is on Thursday, October 2nd.

Or, sign-up for the “Harvest Supper: Celebrating the Grape,” on Saturday October 4th. We'll be in the midst of the wine harvest here in wine country so it only makes sense that there is a class that features....GRAPES! Chef Victoria has created a wonderful menu that features grapes in many forms, from leaves to juice to wine, and a few interesting other grape products VerJus and Saba that add wonderful dimensions to any kitchen. Learn about new delicious ways to use grapes and grape products and savor the resulting delicious meal paired with local wines. http://www.relishculinary.com/

Our Farmers’ Market will have table grapes, top sirloin steaks and seasonal fruits and vegetables (it is a great time to buy peppers). Or, enjoy market vegetable hash with farm eggs and Mornay sauce from The Farmer’s Wife. Maybe chili maple bacon from Sonoma County Meat Company suits your mood. Stop by 9:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday mornings, West Plaza lot.

We recently had a great write-up from the online site www.goodtaste.tv. They said: “There's nothing like visiting Sonoma in the fall. The vines are in a beautiful seasonal transformation with dramatic hues of red and gold. The flavors of fall are on! Apples grown on many of the farms, and this recipe hails from a charming bed and breakfast in my very favorite Sonoma town of Healdsburg.” http://goodtaste.tv/recipes/showrecipe/display/camellia-inn-apple-ham-breakfast-bread-pudding

Here is the recipe they loved.
Apple & Ham Breakfast Bread Pudding
1 loaf day-old French bread crusts removed and cut into 1-2 inch cubes – we use Costeaux Bakery bread
2 cups milk
7 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 large apple – chopped
1 cup ham – diced

For the sauce:
1/2 cup butter – melted
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Spread bread cubes on bottom of 9”x12” greased casserole dish. Sprinkle ham and apples over the top of the bread cubes. Mix together milk, eggs, sugar, and salt. Pour over bread. Can be covered and refrigerated overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes until golden brown. It will be more custard-like if the dish is placed in a pan of water while baking.

In a small bowl whisk together melted butter and sugar until sugar is dissolved, add maple syrup. Cut into desired servings. Pour sauce over warm bread pudding, so that it melts into the nooks & crannies. Serves 12.
