Spring. That time when a young man’s fancy turns to love. In my case, it’s a not-so-young man’s fancy for wines.
Anyway, although I am mentioning Spring, don’t worry, this is not an intro. for a piece on Rose wines. It’s a bit of a statement of gratitude that the weather has turned gorgeous again.
Which naturally means that Teikoku, my favorite eatery on earth, will be reinstating their Wine on the Deck food and wine pairing events.
Here’s the skinny on their next pairing, which I’m stoked to attend as they’ll be throwing their yummy Asian-inspired small plate dishes at wines selections from Chile & Argentina; not the first match that comes to mind for Asian Fusion, so my curiosity – and, to be honest, my Spider Sense – are both tingling:
Teikoku restaurant invites you to join us for an evening of wine on the deck with Heather Wright, Wine educator and Consultant from Capital Wine and Spirits. Having just returned from visiting South America and its wineries, Heather has brought back some phenomenal wines and stories to share. Featuring innovative small plates by Executive Chefs Chay Aniwat , Aki Takeshima and Executive Chef ,Takao Iinuma, of Win Signature Restaurants.
Thursday May 14, 2009 from 6 P.M. TO 8 P.M.
$40 per person, all inclusive, space is limited, tickets are sold ahead of the event (contact info).
More details are available if you’re interested in what’s being paired with what. If you’re in the Pilly area, stop in and say hi to me (I’ll be the one in the corner with the glass, pen, and business cards).
