Passion in the Kitchen – Burrata Cheesemaking Class @ Desert Wind Winery Tickets

Passion in the Kitchen - Burrata Cheesemaking Class @ Desert Wind Winery | Prosser | Washington | United States

Some would argue that cheesemaking, like winemaking, is both an art and science; we would agree. Try your hand at expert cheesemaking by joining us for a delicious afternoon with Kristi Slotemaker, owner/educator of Rivery Valley Cheese.

Kristi will walk the class through each step of the cheesemaking process, as you sculpt your own ball of creamy burrata (burrata is a form of mozzarella with a creamy filling) that you’ll be able to take home.

To make this hands-on culinary adventure even more delectable, you’ll also enjoy an unlimited cheese buffet and a glass of Desert Wind wine.

Murder Mystery Wine Dinner @ Desert Wind Winery | Prosser | Washington | United States

You’re invited to wine dinner to die for!

Miss Iggy’s is the best little whorehouse in Deadwood – or shall we say the deadliest?

Jimmy Hayward rules this downtrodden, almost forgotten town. It once thrived and prospered when folks thought gold was in them thar hills. Them thar hills contained nothing but dirt and so the town lost not only its fortune but also its fame and its population. Now Deadwood is just an occasional stagecoach stopover for folks moving on to better places, and the Leland Hotel is not only a haven for outlaws, it houses the best little whorehouse in South Eastern Washington.
