8 Course Grilling and Wine Pairing Dinner with a Star Studded Cast of Grill Instructors!
Circuit Training for Grills with the addition of Wine! Invite your Girlfriends!
Date: October 22nd, 2022: 4-9pm
Location: Robyn’s House in the Country @therobotranch in Fort Myers
After a long hiatus, I’m bringing back the Women’s Grilling Clinic! I started doing these back in 2008 at the inception of GRILLGIRL.COM, but now I’m older and wiser and this is going to be the best one yet as I’ve brought in my highly accomplished Grill Sisters (and one Grill Brother- see Roster of Cooks below) to help with the event! The event will be hosted at our newly built house out in the country that is built for outdoor entertaining!
The goal of the Women’s Grilling Clinic is to teach women the fundamentals of grilling in a relaxed “Girls Night Out” Atmosphere. This class is for any woman who wants to learn how to grill, learn different styles of grilling, and try new recipes to remake at home!
Even if you don’t live in the greater Fort Myers area, if you are a Woman who wants to learn to grill, this event is worth making a drive or taking a plane because you are going to learn how to grill on all kinds of grills: Charcoal, Gas, Pellet, Flattop, Open Fire Argentine Style and more with the assistance of my fellow Award Winning Pitmasters! In addition, each recipe and grill station will have a wine Pairing featuring a Siduri or JM Family Wine. To end the weekend with a bang, I’ll be hosting a Bloody Mary Goat Yoga Brunch the following morning Sponsored by The W Sauce (my new favorite Worcestershire Sauce) that is open to anyone who wants to come!
