Back by popular demand!
Chef & Somm is offering another great workshop at The Leslieville Food & Drink Festival!
Food and Wine, Chocolate and Wine; Cracking the Code to Perfect Pairings!
Most of us know when tasting wine to consider the terroir, the winemaker, and grape variety. But should we extend these same considerations to food and chocolate?
We think so, and we’d love to show you why!
Join us for 90 minutes of interactive fun and educational tastings. We’ll delve into some delicious dilemmas: For example, does lamb raised in New Zealand taste different to lamb raised in Ontario on Ontario-grown feeds? And is it best to pair Ontario lamb with an Ontario wine?
To find out, we’ll sample some bites and sips while busting a few commonly-held food and wine pairing myths. We’ll also examine the chef’s roll in wine pairing excellence – it isn’t all about the Sommelier! – and delve into the often fuzzy world of menu wording.
TIX: $68 (inlcudes entrance to festival, 2 tasting tokens, 90 min chocolate & wine pairing seminar)
