Here’s a chance to eat dessert first. In fact, to only eat dessert if you really want to. On Monday, April 20, four all-star pastry chefs converge for a four-course dessert and wine tasting at Partake by K-J (241 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg). The lineup includes Manny Frimbrez of Madrona Manor, Corey Wright from Kendall-Jackson, Robert “Buttercup” Nieto of K-J and Ramon Perez of Puur Chocolat in Sacramento.
This is no chocolate lava cake and creme brûlée phone-in, be assured.
Expect some serious dessert porn, with sweet, savory, crunchy and exotic plates good enough for competition. Each course is then perfectly paired with port, late harvest Chardonnay and Port. To whet your appetite, the chefs are cooking up some savory canapés during the reception, you know, so you don’t totally go into sugar-shock. Tickets are $45 per person, $36 for wine club members, 7:30p.m. RSVP by April 17 at 707-433-6000.
