Urban Sugar & American Sommelier Class

Maine a la Carte has published a report from the first of a series of wine education classes being taught by American Sommelier,

Smart without pretention, detail rich and serious, yet fun and engaging — the seminar stood out among other wine-education events I’ve attended. Andrew Bell, a restaurant-industry veteran who co-founded American Sommelier in New York City in 1998, led the session, which began with a detailed explanation of how the tongue experiences flavor and texture in wine.

and an article about the Urban Sugar Mobile Cafe food truck which is launching today.

Urban Sugar will be producing hot, made-to-order,  sweet and savory mini-donuts in both traditional and “gourmet” flavors, according to Valeri Sandes, a pastry chef who is opening the business with her husband Kevin, the former manager at Caiola’s.
