The best part of a wineries event is the food and the wine of course... here is a collection of our favorite recipes from past events!

(2) Jars Old English Cheese by Kraft
(2) 8 oz blocks Cream Cheese
½ Pint Whipping Cream
1/8 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
½ Tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 lb Fresh Dungeness Crab (Cooked and Cleaned)
Dash each of Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper Heat and blend all of the ingredients until smooth and creamy before adding the crab. Then, add the crab meat and heat through. Stir frequently. Serve with French bread. Pairs deliciously with Occidental Road Cellars Estate Chardonnay and Rose de Pinot Noir!
Over low heat, melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan and immediately remove from heat.
In a bowl, combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add melted butter and chocolate and stir until combined. Then, add flour and stir to combine.
Pour into a greased 13 x 9 baking sheet. Baking at 350 degrees for 20 - 24 minutes. Remove when edges and top start to appear firm but center is still soft. I remove mine from the oven at 20 minutes making them gooey and super yummy! Cool, slice and serve. Paired wonderfully with Occidental Road Cellars 2008 Estate Sweetheart Syrah.
