The Sweet Tastes of Valentine’s Day by “Living Well With Pat Nogar”

Let Pat help you prepare your palate (and your menu) for Valentine’s Day!!!! Pat Nogar, of “Living Well With Pat Nogar” is known for exploring (and making) the best of foods and this event promises to be no different. Thinking of what to prepare for your sweetheart? Consider this – Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Mini Sweetheart Cherry Pies, Mini Cheesecakes, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, and Red Velvet Cupcakes. And we will close this sweet feast with Black Pepper Raspberry Sorbet floating in Prosecco!

The biggest dilemma on Valentine’s Day is what wine to serve with sweets. Pat has solved that problem by inviting Haley Lowe Erdlen of Scout & Cellar, the producers of “Clean-Crafted Wines”, to join her in pairing wines with her hand-made treats. With Pat, Haley will guide you through a complimentary wine tasting so you will know just what wine brings out the best in these dishes. You’ll be ready for a Valentine’s Day you’ll not forget!

This private event wil be held at the chic boutique, Gilbert & Evans located in Suburban Square. Gilbert & Evans features women, men’s and children’s fashions and home and gift items. They are prepared to help you select the perfect outfit (or gift) for Valentine’s Day. Anything item in pink or red will be offered at a 20% discount at this event only. I’ve got my eye on a fabulous red sweater I saw there the other day!

Finally, in support of the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” Campaign, “Living Well With Pat Nogar” will donate a portion of the proceeds from this event to the American Heart Association for their educational efforts on women and heart disease.

Important! This event is limited to 20 people so don’t hesitate to get your tickets!
