    Chocolate at Wine and Roses

    Wine and Roses ~ Lodi, CA

    Last week I was teaching in Lodi at the great Wine and Roses Event center/hotel, spa etc.. If you get into the Lodi area, they have so many great wineries and you can just head straight to Wine and Roses for tasting of the valley bounty. 

    I taught a class all on chocolate and when I posted a picture of the cake with frosting the requests started coming in. So here they are!

    It's All Green... Pistachio Cake with a Sherry Glaze

    I first made this cake in the early 1980s in a small Hollywood cake bakery called The Cake Walk it was on 3rd street and La Brea in the middle of all of the studios and the action.  Daily we would get filming crews, stars and the like. For weddings the groom would always pick this cake as the base. Funny how you can make a cake and the flavors and aroma of the kitchen take you back to days gone bye.


    Here is the glazing of the cake.... We used to boast.. "Glazed with Harvey's Bristol Creme Sherry".. The only bottle of Harvey's was in the display case next to the cake. We used jug sherry at a tenth of the cost. Today I use Galleano Winery Sherry Crema Cask Three.. (Below is the link to order and more information).
