[UPDATE: Wow. The first go of tickets sold out in a little over 4 hours. So, the nice folks at Ca Va have added a second seating. Same details as below. Only it starts at 9 p.m. Tickets here.] It’s time we conquered the final frontier of booze and sweets. The Recommended Daily brought you cookies and beer and then whiskey and donuts. But folks told us that we couldn’t stop there. We heard you. And here it is: Cake & Champagne.
We’re partnering with the champagne bar Ca Va (4149 Pennsylvania) to help celebrate the second annual KC Local Week — a simple pledge to buy and support local between Aug. 17-23 — with a cake and champagne pairing event on Tuesday, August 18, at 7 p.m. In this tiny seminar, we’re pairing three bites of cake with three (three-ounce) pours of bubbly.
The first pairing puts corn cake, cured foie gras and peach with Joel Falmet. That’s followed by lemon curd and blueberry with Les Bourgeois brut, and for the final pairing, you’ll digit into nutella mousse and toasted hazelnuts with Serga Viudas Cava Rose. You’ll also get a bit of knowledge about champagne to help up your at-home pairing game.
Come celebrate KC Local Week with the Recommended Daily and Ca Va. We’ll make your night a little sweeter. Tickets ($25) for the Cake & Champagne event on Aug. 18 are available here.
