Virtual Somm School
The Exchange at Edmund’s Oast is hosting a virtual version of their popular Somm School. It started Thursday, January 21, but it’s not too late to sign up as all classes are recorded! This 10-week series is focusing entirely on European wine regions and can be watched live via Zoom from 6 – 7:30 PM every Thursday or at your convenience via the provided recording. The entire series can be purchased for $300 and includes one bottle of wine per class and a 20% discount on other featured wines. If you are interested in attending single classes as opposed to the full series, you can do so for $30 per class (some exclusions apply). And even better, the Exchange ships, so you can take class from afar!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shop at 843-990-9449 for tickets and a full schedule of classes. Food + beverage industry employees are also invited to attend for free (not including the cost of wine). Contact email@example.com if you are a hospitality worker interested in participating.
Shopping locally is made a whole lot easier with the Baguette Magic Market. The market features artisan products such as soap, candles, and tea as well as pasta, eggs, meats, cookie dough, snacks, take + bake dinners, and more. Place orders online for weekly delivery or shop The Market (located next to the restaurant) in person Wednesday – Sunday.
Wednesday – Friday: 9 AM – 5 PM
Saturday – Sunday: 9 AM – 2 PM
