Cooking Demo + wine class with Ana Sortun + Theresa Paopao

Cooking Demo + wine class with Ana Sortun + Theresa Paopao

Spice Bazaar --Cooking demonstration and wine tasting

With Ana Sortun and Theresa Paopao

We have learned that the cuisine of the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East feels rich and full of flavor because of the artful use of spices and herbs. 

Understanding spices as a food and how to cook with them can help transform something ordinary into something extraordinary! Wine often showcases aromas of herbs and spices and can similiarly add a special element to a dish when it's treated like an ingredient.

Oleana Executive chef Ana Sortun will discuss blending, storing and sourcing spices and share a few blends that she can’t live without. Recipes Include: 

  • Scallops + Citrus + Ana Spice 

  • Roasted Carrot Soup + Moroccan Spices

  • Chicken Thighs + Tahini + Dried Fruit +Pistachio

  • Za’atar Bread

Oleana Wine director, Theresa Paopao, will go over the basics of wine tasting and demonstrate how the herb and spice characteristics of wine can compliment a dish.

Class includes tastings of each recipe with wine pairings and booklet of recipes to take home. Seating is limited. 

Ana Sortun graduated from La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine de Paris and opened her restaurant, Oleana, in 2001, immediately drawing rave reviews from the New York Times. She was named Best Chef in the Northeast by the James Beard Foundation in 2005, and went on to open Sofra Bakery and Café. She also co-owns Sarma in Somerville and is the author of two cookbooks—Spice: Flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean and Soframiz: Vibrant Middle Eastern Recipes from Sofra Bakery (with Maura Kilpatrick). Ana is known for bringing Middle Eastern flavors into the mainstream through her passion of Turkish cooking, Spices and her husband’s (Chris Kurth of Siena Farms) fresh, organic vegetables. A 2015, 2016, and 2017 James beard “Outstanding Chef” semi finalist, among her many accomplishments, solidifies her as a leading chef.

Advanced Sommelier Theresa Paopao hails from the small town of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. She left paradise to pursue a graduate degree at the Yale School of Drama, then moved to Boston where she fell in love with the restaurant business and the world of wine. Paopao originally joined the team at Oleana as a manager in 2004, eventually earning the position of wine director. After six years at Oleana, Paopao moved to New York City to join David Chang’s Momofuku as the head wine director; she later opened Momofuku Toronto, serving as beverage director. Paopao returned to Boston in 2013, opening the now-shuttered Ribelle with fellow Momofoku alumni, chef Tim Maslow. In 2016, Paopao joined the team at Asta in Boston, and in the summer of 2018, she reclaimed her title of Wine Director at Oleana. Since 2011, Paopao has been honored to serve as a judge for Decanter Magazine’s annual World Wine Awards held in London.
