Cafe Maxx Pairs Up Champagne and Sushi

Since sushi is traditionally served with but a few beverages -- tea, beer and/or sake -- this pairing is slightly unorthodox. But not really -- white wine with sushi is increasingly popular, and what's champagne but white wine with fizz? 

Also, it's more common to see sushi prepared by non-Japanese folks, which is what this cooking class is featuring. 

There's chef Oliver Saucy, chef Darin Hoagland, and pastry chef Danielle Herring, none of them sounding too Japanese. Orthodoxy is out!

After you try your hand making a few rolls, it's time to enjoy your creations. Sommelier Andrew Lampasone of Wine Watch will be available to answer questions.

The class begins at 5 p.m. at Cafe Maxx, 2601 Atlantic Ave., Pompano Beach. 

Cost of the class and dinner is $65 per person, not including tax and tip. To make a reservation, call 954-782-0606.
