Food and Wine Workshop


Food and Wine Workshop

Have you ever wondered which wine to serve at your dinner party or what goes well with Thai food ?– well this is the tasting for you! The evening is aimed at demonstratiing which wines go well with different types of food. We start with a delicious 1er Cru Champagne, and then we will taste crisp, unoaked whites with delicious shellfish such as prawns / mussels, and combinations like Riesling & Sauvignon Blanc with spicy aromatic Thai/Vietnamese cuisine. Lighter reds (Pinot Noir/Cab Franc) to accompany simple but tasty grilled meats, and heavier, spicier reds (Shiraz/Grenache, and Cab/Merlot) that match perfectly with richly flavoured meat dishes with herbs and garlic. We will conclude with sweet and tangy Muscat dessert wines that surprisingly go as well with blue cheeses (eg Stilton, Roquefort) as they do with fruit-based desserts. After the workshop you will have a good basis of knowledge that will help you combine wines with food and enhance your eating pleasure! All the food & wine is included in the price. We will be tasting :Top Vintage Champagne with smoked salmon
