Tahoe City’s Farmers Market Wolfdale’s style

TAHOE CITY, Calif. – Like his menu, Douglas Dale’s Wolfdale’s restaurant ranges far beyond the boundaries of convention, often sailing into gastronomic waters not regularly charted.

Thursday, Aug. 19 and Thursday, Sept. 9, the landmark North Shore eatery and the Tahoe City Farmers Market combine in offering an educational and fun cooking class.

Participants arrive at Wolfdale’s at 9 a.m. After introductions, the class is broken up into four groups, each with a course assignment: Appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Each group then accompanies Chef Dale to the nearby Commons Beach, location of the weekly summer Farmer’s Market. Members pick the freshest fruit and vegetables from regional ranches and farms. Returning to the restaurant, Chef Dale shares his culinary magic, instructing and guiding the aspiring staff in the creation of their four-course luncheon.

Diners enjoy their preparations with a sit down meal. Wolfdale’s sommelier Jim “JB” Budny adds to the festivities with a selection of wines to pair with each course.

The Wolfdale’s Farmers Market Cooking Class is limited. Cost for class is $90 per person. The Aug. 19 class may be booked directly through Wolfdales. Sept. 9, reservations may be booked through Nothing To It Cooking School in Reno at (775) 826-2628.

Celebrating its 32nd season, Wolfdale’s Cuisine Unique is located at 640 N. Lake Blvd., Tahoe City. Mentioned as one of the Robb Reports’100 favorite restaurants, the lakeside eatery features fresh seafood, meats, game and exotic produce. Wolfdale’s serves lakeside dinners nightly during summer months. The restaurant offers a full bar from 5 p.m. and dinner from 5:30 p.m.
