August Wine Tasting

Tuesday the 27th, I will run another monthly wine tasting here at The Blue Anchor Wine Bistro, Wine Bar or whatever you’d like to call it 😉

This month I will show you, how beautiful could be a Riesling variety from the Mosel Valley in Germany.

In my opinion, it is the best expression of this variety.

Only 12 spots available and not even one more.

Now Poland. 4-course dinner

“Polish cuisine is the result a treasured lore of ancestral ingredients and has recently bloomed from virtual obscurity to one of the rising stars of the European scene. Its great advantage over long-time favorites like French or Italian fare is its range of unexpected tastes: the sharp pungency of mustard plants, the sparkle of fermentation, and umami galore.”
www.culture.pl

Those who know me, they can confirm that my polish nights are something, which is definitely worth to try out.

As a Polish who grow up in Poland and who finish Polish Catering School but who love to experimenting, I add to the traditional dishes a small twist.

If you would like to find out if Polish cuisine is something for you, grab your   TICKET as soon as possible.

 

(As you see, there will be meat and most of the allergens, so please do not ask me for vegetarian/vegan or gluten-free option. I do all my preps myself. It cost me lots of planning and time. This is a Pop-Up dinner, not a regular restaurant. Sorry. )

Only 14 spots available.

And one more thing: 11 of November is a Polish Independence Day and Day of Saint Martin (my patron) 🙂

Riesling -Der (Mosel) Kaiser

Riesling and his many faces.

From bone-dry to lusciously sweet. From young and fresh to matured and distinguished.

All of them with a fantastic Acidity.

It’s great as an aperitif, brilliant with an Oysters or other Seafood and delicious with desserts. It also easily cut thru the fats from the pork belly or even a beef steak.

Just take a look at that short videos:)
