Pasta by Hand with Jenn Louis
Sat., June 6 (10:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.)
Spend the afternoon with Jenn Louis and Chef Estevan Jimenez of AQUA TERRA Culinary at spectacular De Tierra Vineyards—a landscape described by author John Steinbeck as the “pastures of heaven”—for a day that celebrates the beauty of the handmade. Watch Jenn demonstrate how to make beautiful Italian dumplings from her new book, Pasta by Hand. Meet De Tierra winemaker, Zack Lawrence, and the rest of the De Tierra team for a tour of the private vineyard property and learn how De Tierra grows grapes, as well as olives for its award-winning oil, without any chemical pesticides. Finally, sit down for a rustically elegant lunch inspired by Jenn’s dynamic menus paired with De Tierra wines.
The Mysterious Abalone with Estevan Jimenez and Trevor Fay
Sat., June 6 (3 – 4 p.m.)
Abalone are considered a culinary delicacy, but few home cooks know how to prepare them. Once a popular treat in California, overfishing forced the commercial fishery to close and abalone became a scarce commodity. Now abalone cultivated in land- or sea-based enclosures are a sustainable seafood choice, and available to consumers. Estevan Jimenez of AQUA TERRA Culinary and Trevor Fay of Monterey Abalone Company will join you to uncover the mysteries of the abalone. You’ll learn from Trevor how he cultivates sustainable abalone under Monterey’s commercial wharf, and Estevan will demonstrate simple preparation techniques and recipes that will bring this seafood indulgence home.

Everything [AQUA TERRA @home] was amazing. Perfect portions (looked smaller than it was – very filling). My husband was skeptical, but liked everything. I was very surprised he ate the eggplant & chard. His favorites were the fish and risotto (best risotto he ever had)…We followed your directions and everything was perfect. Thanks for adding fish to our weekday diet!
Great food. We love their AQUA TERRA @home. The food is amazing and the instructions to heat/re-heat is simple to follow. The kids love their school hot lunch too. AQUA TERRA does a good job at keeping kids interested in eating healthy foods.
