Fundamentals of Wine

Like any great field of study, wine appreciation is a life-long endeavor. It can start out intimidating and mysterious, but with structured guidance, a fascinating world of smell, taste and flavor – can awaken. In this intensive 3-day program, learn to taste and describe wine as we travel through commercially important wine regions of the world.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

We begin with the historical context of the great regions of Europe and taste benchmark examples of the classic styles – from sparkling to still, to fortified. We’ll make sense of how these wines came to be and their current relevance in the global wine market.

Not to be outdone, the regions we refer to as the New World, the Americas, the Antipodes and South Africa, have an equally compelling story to tell. We’ll taste the New Classics and draw comparisons to, and discern differences from, their Old World predecessors. In a global market, it’s the planet’s vineyards competing for market share! With our 3-day intensive training, you’ll begin to think differently about the business of wine and – to your great pleasure – eat and drink more deeply with your new life skills.

Charcuterie & Pâtés

Imagine setting out beautifully arranged plates of pâtés, saucisson and prosciutto —all made at home in your very own kitchen. At ICC, you can learn elements of the craft of the charcutier, a trade that has been around for centuries. Getting a taste of life as a charcutier doesn’t have to take a big bite out of your schedule, however; by simply following our trademark Total ImmersionSM training method, you’ll be amazed by how much you’ll gain in just 15 class hours. Don your own set chef’s whites, enter our professional kitchens and listen as chef-instructors share the techniques, tips and trade secrets that took them years to learn.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

You’ll walk away with hands-on knowledge to make fresh-cured bacon, prosciutto, fresh and dry-cured sausages, pâtés, pork rillettes and duck and ham confit. Among the subjects discussed will be the traditions of charcuterie; an overview of pig anatomy and butchery; methods used to salt, smoke and cure meats; and techniques of working with seasonings, casings and more.

In this course centered on authenticity and aptitude, your immersion begins on day one, and the fast-paced learning and excitement never let up.
