Farmington, PA (January 20, 2009) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort has created a new weekend event offering guests an unforgettable gourmet experience. A Taste Of Nemacolin will be held Feb 20 – Feb 22 at the luxury resort located southeast of Pittsburgh.
“Although we have hosted different food and beverage weekends in the past, the “Taste Of Nemacolin” event encompasses a wider variety of experiences that appeal to both the true gourmet as well as those individuals simply interested in a unique weekend adventure” says Jeremy Critchfield, resort Director of Food and Beverage. “
Friday’s offerings begin with a traditional Wine Tasting followed by a Cab Shootout where guests will have the opportunity to experience a glass to glass comparison of some of America's most coveted Cabernet Sauvignon, concentrating in the diversity of California Wine Country with a focus on the Napa Valley. The evening concludes with Cognac Tasting, Cigar Rolling and the resort’s signature Art of Sabrage demonstration.
Saturday morning begins with a Sous-Vide cooking class instructed by Dave Racicot, Chef de Cuisine of Nemacolin’s Five Diamond restaurant, Lautrec. Sous-Vide is French for under vacuum and is a method of cooking that is intended to maintain the integrity of ingredients by heating them for an extended period of time at relatively low temperatures.Sous-videcooking uses airtight plastic bags placed in hot water well below boiling point.

An Italian Food and Wine Luncheon as well as a Coffee Cupping and Chocolate Tasting and Reserve French Wine Tasting round out the afternoon’s activities.
