Cider Classes, Chez Foushee Expands and More Food News

Posted By on Mon, Jul 30, 2018 at 1:41 PM

Firsthand Fermenting
The pros at Blue Bee Cider are offering a class for people interested in creating their own hard cider. Tickets, available online at Eventbrite, cost $30 per person and all ingredients and equipment will be provided. It's only open to 30 participants, so grab your ticket before they run out.

A Little Lunch
Monroe Ward's Chez Foushee has been a Richmond favorite since the late '80s, and the white-tablecloth restaurant changed hands in December. A few weeks ago, owner Whitney Cardozo added Little Chez Deli and Cafe at 203 N. Foushee St. Open 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, the deli offers a selection of baked goods, coffee and tea, sandwiches, wraps and salads. Boxed lunches featuring sandwiches with either chips, potato salad, a cookie or a dessert bar are also available.

Celebrate in Style
August is Virginia Craft Beer month, and what better way to kick it off than a festival at a Virginia-focused museum? The annual BrewHaHa Virginia Craft Beer Festival is this Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Virginia Museum of History and Culture, formerly the Virginia Historical Society. For $30 you get a commemorative tasting glass that you can fill as many as eight times with three-ounce pours from 10 breweries and two cideries, plus access to food concessions and live music. For an extra $10, VIP ticket holders get to attend the Battle of the Brews — four Richmond-area breweries created a lemon beer using a historic recipe dug up from the archives, and the first 250 people to claim tickets get to sample each one.  The contest begins at 4:30 p.m. and the general festival opens at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at virginiahistory.org.
