After introductions at 6:30 p.m., the dinner will start with you enjoying your first glass of wine, while you enjoy the Charcuterie and Cheese Plate. Our Sommelier will discuss proper wine temperature and aeration, and specifics of this particular wine. The Chef will walk through preparation of the 2nd course with you and demonstrate how to plate it, sharing some personal and humorous stories of past experiences along the way.
While you’re enjoying your 2nd course, your entrée will be finishing in the oven. As you move on to the main course, our Chef will present the inspiration behind the dish, its cultural history, and show you how to plate it beautifully. Our Wine Expert will introduce the second wine, explaining why he paired this wine, and discussing the art of pairing wine with food.
