Enriching Lives

Bayside Institute Logo

Wellness Leadership Award Lt Governor's ChallengeHere at Bayside, we value our abilities in offering unparalleled opportunities for family fun and togetherness. Time with loved ones at Bayside is precious, whether it’s kayaking with the kids, playing golf or tennis with friends, or swaying with neighbors to the sounds of a great outdoor concert. But, let’s be honest. Once in a while you need to take a little time for yourself…

Imagine grabbing a cup of coffee and slipping out the door to greet the morning sun. Hop on your bike and ride to the Point to discover a new hobby or ignite an undiscovered passion. Start your day by sharing your personal story in creative writing, enhancing your wellness with a healthy cooking class, or learning to arrange flowers beautifully. Spend a quiet afternoon learning unique local history or wind down another beautiful day in Fenwick Island with a wine tasting by the bay.

As an innovative year-round program, Bayside Institute enriches lives by giving our members the gift of meaningful “me” time. Learn new skills, explore new subjects, embrace hobbies, and share wisdom – in any number of fascinating interest areas. This is about you. “Me” time is priceless.

Pasta Like a Pro @ The Health & Aquatic Club
Feb 17 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Learn the basics of making semolina pasta, typical of Southern Italy, with this hands-on workshop. No prior pasta making experience is required for this class. There are no prerequisites for each class.  You may take any of these classes as a stand-alone class or take all three as each class will focus on unique traditional hand formed pasta shapes along with delicious sauces that beautifully and deliciously pair with your pasta.

During class, you’ll learn about the ingredients and tools you need to make semolina pasta and how to mix and knead the dough by hand. This class requires no eggs, pasta machines nor any special tools. Just bring your clean hands, and everything else will be provided!

Following an instructor live dough making demonstration, you will use instructor prepared dough to learn how to hand form a variety of traditional southern pasta shapes. You will also have a live chef demonstration of how to prepare different regional sauces that are traditionally paired with these unique pasta shapes. The class will conclude with a discussion of how to store and properly cook your fresh pasta, and of course we will as a group enjoy the fruits of our labor paired with a glass of wine!

Wine Club: Frank Family Vineyards Tasting @ The Board Room at Signatures
Feb 21 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

New this year is the Bayside Institute Wine Club, which features classes independently designed to increase your worldly knowledge and taste of wines. This month, Irena Jones, Level 1 Sommelier, will guide you (and your tastebuds!) through wines from Frank Family Vineyards. Frank Family has called Larkmead Lane their home for winemaking and hospitality since they opened to the public on 4th of July weekend in 1993. But this property has been grounds for winemaking well over 100 hundred years. First established in 1884 as the historic Larkmead Winery, Frank Family Vineyards is now where Great Wine Happens Every Day. Though once home to only sparkling wines, Frank Family Vineyards now produces superb still wines. It’s the third-oldest winery built in Napa Valley, and in many ways, still feels like it once was.

Please register one guest at a time. 

Primary Members $25.00/Extended Family Members or Bayside Guest $30.00
