This is also the first in a three part pasta making series:

September 8th Let's Make Pasta 102: flour + egg

October 13th Let's Make Pasta 103: stuffed pasta

Join us for one of all three!

Ali and Alix made their way to Sonoma County late last summer, Ali for wine harvest and Alix a few months later. Their move from Brooklyn was sparked by a desire to connect with the land and reconnect with their passion for food, farming and hospitality. 

 Ali grew up in restaurants, holding nearly every position in the business. In 2011 she started a cookie company, with a full line of all-natural cookies distributed nationally and in 2017 she opened a fresh pasta concept in the NoLita neighborhood in Manhattan. She has cooked at the James Beard House, competed in the Barilla US World Pasta Competition and collaborated with culinary powerhouses, Gail Simmons, Alison Roman and Katie Parla. 

 Alix spent the past decade working in branding, marketing and PR for some of the world's top chefs, viral fast casual chains and buzzworthy wineries. Her career has taken her from the red carpet at the Academy Awards with Wolfgang Puck, behind the scenes of Bravo's Top Chef with Tom Colicchio to securing partnerships with Bumble Biz, Theory 2.0 and The Wing.

Ali and Alix craft unique experiences in Northern California focused on flour, water and wine.

Mountain Tides In 2016, Scott Kirkpatrick  &  Allison Watkins got married and shortly after that they decided to combine their artistic talents, winemaking experience, and passion into a new project called Mountain Tides. As artists, they believe that they can often better understand the world around us through creative and thoughtful work, and what better way to understand the dynamic and diverse California landscape than to make wines that show how a change in place, time, and process can yield drastically different results from the same grape. They love Petite Sirah in all its forms and we think you will as well.

Miyoko’s Creamery Miyoko Schinner (say Me-Yo-Co) is the tenacious, award-winning vegan celebrity chef behind Miyoko’s. Her passion for her craft and mission is unrivaled. Miyoko helped to kick off the start of the vegan cheese revolution.

FERMENTATION WORKSHOP WITH MCVICKER PICKLES
Sep

12:00 PM12:00

FERMENTATION WORKSHOP WITH MCVICKER PICKLES

Lacto-fermentation is a seemingly magical microbial process that transforms raw vegetables into something entirely different, shelf-stable, and delicious. Not only is it a great way to preserve vegetables while they’re in season, it’s a time-honored method of increasing the nutritional value of food and adding more probiotics to your diet.

Join Kelly McVicker, founder of San Francisco’s McVicker Pickles, as she guides you in a hands-on experience with the fermentation process.

While we work, Kelly will talk about the health benefits of fermented foods, and why doing it at home is better than buying commercially made (and often pasteurized) products. You’ll also get to sample a selection of her favorite homemade fermented goods.

Each participant will take home a jar of each of the types of fermented veggies made in class. You can take home your custom creations, keep an eye on your ’edible pet,’ and enjoy the flavor in a few days.

Get your tickets online or purchase in the shop - space is limited! $60/per attendee

ABOUT KELLY: Kelly McVicker is the founder of San Francisco-based McVicker Pickles, where she blends her Kansas roots with California flavors via small batch pickles and condiments. Kelly has presented at TEDx, San Francisco Street Food Festival, Bay Area Maker Faire, Eat Real Festival, and other events. She has contributed recipes for books and magazines focused on food preservation, and is currently researching for a book project of her own. Kelly is a Certified Master Food Preserver, which means she can teach you how to can, pickle, ferment, jam, jelly, dehydrate, or help you test your pressure canner!

Fika at MIracle Plum and a Swedish Summer Celebration with Anna Brones

As we lead into summer, it's easy for us to ramp up our activities, so we're going to spend an afternoon with writer and artist Anna Brones talking about slowing down and enjoying time outside and with friends over fika. In Sweden, June means midsummer, the celebration of summer solstice.

Wildflowers are in abundance this time of year, and they are wrapped around the traditional midsummer pole as well as turned into flower crowns to make the day extra festive. But it doesn't have to be midsummer to celebrate. Picking wildflowers is a good excuse to get outside and slow down, a chance to disconnect and fuel your creativity.

Come join us with a kick off to the month of June with Anna Brones, who will lead us through midsummer flower crown making followed by a casual fika, the traditional Swedish coffee break.

There will be copies of her books Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break and Live Lagom: Balanced Living the Swedish Way available.

Art Show with Maynard Lyndon

Join us in welcoming Maynard Hale Lyndon (and wonderful wife Lu) to Miracle Plum for a special viewing of what he calls Looking Boxes—a concept he devised about 15 years ago. Using only his own photographs, Maynard juxtaposes cut-outs of his photos into 3-dimensional boxes (in several sizes).  Maynard says “I visualize a combination of images in my head and then put together snippets of my photographs into relationships— the images deriving from viewing and photographing architecture, design, art, and details, to create my Looking Boxes.”

To date, Maynard has made over 750 individual Boxes; each is one-of-a-kind and we are thrilled to share his work with you all.

A bit more about Maynard:  Artist, industrial designer, entrepreneur.

Maynard has an extensive art, design and retail background.  He draws and paints and constructs—AND designs products and architectural interiors and sometimes teaches and lectures, and enjoys what he refers to as “Playful Ways of Seeing”.

Let's Make Pasta!

Learn the ins and outs of handmade pasta alongside New York transplant Ali LaRaia on Friday, March 22nd here at Miracle Plum! This hands on cooking class is a collaboration with Miracle Plum, Ali LaRaia, Cowgirl Creamery and Ria D'Aversa of Pennrose Wine

Not only will you dive into making pasta dough and shapes, but you'll get to do so while enjoying a selection of antipasti and drinking local, low intervention wine. Walk away with the pasta you create along with pasta knowledge, recipes, and a few of the tools you need to make more at home.

Space is limited, so get your tickets now! 

ALI grew up in restaurants and has held almost every position you can have in the business, instilling a love and understanding of the food industry from an early age. While in college at the University of San Francisco, Ali worked in F&B editorial before diving into the world of startups working as a consultant for product development. A simultaneous food blog kept Ali’s love for food alive, until she joined the Test Kitchen team at CHOW. It was this experience that not only helped Ali to refine her culinary technique, but allowed her to fully understand how a recipe came together.

In 2011, Ali returned to New York to start Marianberry Cookies, an E-commerce brand selling a full line of all-natural cookies. Within 6 months, Marianberry was nationally distributed to one of the world’s largest high-end retailers.

Ali took her love of Italian cuisine to the source and began to travel through Italy to experience its regions, understand its ingredients and enhance her love and understanding of Italian food and wine through taste. Ali’s travels to Italy were where her love for Italian culture deepened and her obsession with fresh pasta began – that was the beginning of New York City’s first fresh pasta fast casual concept.

Through that platform, Ali has been featured at the James Beard House and collaborated with female culinary powerhouses, Katie Parla, Alison Roman and Gail Simmons. Her travels through Italy have been documented by Food & Wine Magazine and her recipes can be seen in People Magazine, Shape and Vogue.com. 

Some links to see her stuff:

•   Heritage Radio Network The Line

•   Food & Wine Magazine Guides : Milan , Emilia Romagna

•   Snacky Tunes Playlist

•   Pastificio di Martino Primo di New York Finalist

PENNROSE WINE originated while in search of diverse and interesting vineyards of California. The wines express these vineyards from throughout the state and are intended to be approachable, fresh wines for your table. The owners, Ria and Mike, are based in Santa Rosa, though they find their grapes from as far south as San Benito and into the mountains of Amador county. With working backgrounds in Italy and France, the wines are made with artisanal techniques and minimal intervention. Pennrose is meant to reflect the ease of everyday wines for the table. 

COWGIRL CREAMERY Just north of San Francisco, in the rolling hills of Marin, Cowgirl Creamery makes some of the finest cheeses in the United States. In 1997, former chefs Sue Conley and Peggy Smith channeled their culinary and environmental ideals into artisan cheesemaking by opening Cowgirl Creamery. Today, the company produces a variety of fresh, bloomy, and aged cheeses by using milk from neighboring dairies and championing their local milkshed. Two decades, dozens awards (including induction into the Guilde des Fromagers), two creameries and two retails stores later, Cowgirl Creamery continues to help pioneer the American artisan cheese movement.
