The Palm Beach Post Online: Palm Beach dining: In lieu of trip to Spain, cooking class will come to you

The Palm Beach Post Online July 8, 2020

Thanks to her Andalusia-based culinary expert cousin, Palm Beach master sommelier Virginia Philip is bringing a taste of Spain to Palm Beach.

It involves a Zoom cooking class this Saturday with Philip’s charismatic cousin Annie Manson, a southern Spain gastronomy expert runs the Casa Alegre cooking school in Jerez de la Frontera.

The cooking class — featuring Manson live from Casa Alegre, cooking such dishes as baked snapper with Romesco sauce — is a substitute, of sorts, for something Philip’s eponymous Palm Beach wine shop annually hosts: a trip to Spain, featuring Manson as guide and culinary guru.

The annual trip isn’t taking place this year due to coronavirus-related travel issues, said Philip, whose Virginia Philip Wine, Spirits and Academy is located in Royal Poinciana Plaza.

“This Zoom class is going to be a lot of fun, and everyone who participates will receive a video to watch in advance of the class,” showing what ingredients to look for and buy as Manson, in the video, takes viewers shopping at markets, Philip said Tuesday.
