San Diego Opera recently announced the return of the fourth annual “Taste of Opera,” a series of events designed to offer an introduction to the 2012 season in informal and casual settings around creatively themed dinners and events.
Working off the successes of last year's events, this year’s expanded menu of activities includes the continuation of a themed series of cooking classes at Great News Discount Cookware and Cooking School, as well as casual dinners and conversations at various San Diego restaurants.
Chef Katherine Emmenegger from Great News has created four cooking class menus inspired by each of the operas of the San Diego 2012 season: "Salome," "Moby-Dick," "Don Pasquale" and "The Barber of Seville." Emmenegger and sous-chef Nicolas Reveles (who is also San Diego Opera Geisel Director of Education and Outreach) will entertain guests with facts and stories while meals are being created.

The award recognizes a select group of hotels that achieves a 99 percent customer satisfaction score and a 99 percent delivery of product performance. Hyatt Regency Mission Bay received this honor for its “demonstration of superior operational consistency and exemplary quality standards.”
This event is planned for several weeks, ending after Christmas, once the food court reopens.
