THE BEST OF BISTRO
"The world of imagination is boundless." --- Jean Jaques Rousseau
February 27, 28 & March 1, 2009
Classic French Bistro cooking, the very
essence of comfort food, where authenticity and tradition reign supreme.
Superbly paired with wines from Champagne, The Rhone, Bandol, and
Burgundy’s small centuries old wineries.

The whole world loves Italian cooking
with its simplicity, intensity and spirit. And, so do we.! It is the
essence and anticipation of Spring’s foods, especially when paired with
Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, Barolo and Barbaresco.

THE TAPAS OF
"It takes a long time to become young." --- Pablo Picasso
April 17, 18 & 19, 2009
Intensely flavored “small plates” that
are a terrific trend to add to your own repertoire. They make a party or
an everyday meal exciting!! Paired with Tempranillo, Granache, and
"I cook with wines. Sometimes I even add it to the food."
"Joining me will be Wine Pros Norm
Campbell and Charlie Elkins to conduct our Wine Tastings and pair
authentic “terrior” wines from Neil Rosenthal, Kermit Lynch and Martha’s
Vineyard, with every course of our menus; the extraordinary Chef,
Matt Millar of the Journeyman will prepare a special dinner; and the
sophisticated Mary Rademacher and Mark Kahny will croon a little jazz
and cabaret on into the night.
One of the reasons I love to cook is to
learn. It’s an opportunity to satisfy my insatiable curiosity --- and
simultaneously my appetite! Some of the best recipes happen simply through
serendipity. The joy is to that I get to share it all with some of the most
interesting people around --- food and wine people. Come celebrate the good
life with us!
"Wine improves with age --- I like it more the older I get."
