Playing With Food II
2013 Sep 24

We had such a great Playing with Your Food Event last October at Metrovino that we want to offer another session – great for those who attended part 1 and want to build on this and fine for newcomers too. Playingwith your Food Part 2, on Tuesday Sept 24th 6:30pm,  welcomes you to a unique and unorthodox adventure in wine and cuisine: a celebration of joie de vivre.

Eating and drinking well is an art that owes much to science. Successful food and wine pairings balance complimentary flavours and complexities and like any relationship, it’s about chemistry. We will explore the relationships between foods and wines and how they relate to each other.

We will pair some excellent wines (a sparkling wine, a demi sec Huet Vouvray, a Pinot noir,  a champagne, a white Savoie , a Languedoc red and a dessert wine) with a variety of foods that will encompass sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami to experience first hand how wine and food combinations can amplify, diminish, transfer for create new flavours, some sublime, others off balance or disappointing. Learn the basic rules and break them. Indulge your creative spirit.

6:30pm Tuesday Sept 24th downstairs at the Cookbook Company at 722 11 Ave SW  Calgary, AB (right next door to Metrovino).
