Wine Dinner – April 1, 2015
I just want to take a moment and talk about our first wine dinner that we will be hosting at Twelve Stones Restaurant. We are very excited to offer a five-course wine pairing dinner at $100 per guest. Our dinner will feature our interpretations of a cuisine that was very influential to my early culinary interests.
When I was fifteen, I had the fantastic opportunity to spend two weeks in southern France. This visit came as the conclusion of my working summer in the Netherlands. During my time with our family friends, I had the fortunate opportunity to experience my first multi-course French meal. The family I was visiting hosted a meal cooked by a local chef. What I can remember, the meal was nothing short of amazing. For the first time, I had spent close to three hours enjoying fresh seafood, local beef, foul, and other various items from the region.
This meal helped me realize how much I loved food. It was a turning point in my life. I was amazed at the beauty and passion of the food that was presented to us throughout this masterpiece of a meal. While I did not appreciate it as much at the time, I also was allowed to taste various wines that were served throughout the evening. I have never forgotten this evening and the passion that our host chef displayed as he presented his creations.
With this said, I wanted to make our first wine dinner one that highlighted foods from the region of the world that first inspired me. I hope that you will join us as we take a small journey with some wonderfully French-inspired dishes paired with some wines from various regions.
We are very excited about this dinner that we will be hosting. Look forward to our inaugural wine dinner coming in March! Please, give us a call and reserve your seat today. The dinner will be limited to the first 30 guests.
