In January 2017 I organized second edition of my food and wine pop up.
This time the Guest had a chance to tasted 5 sparkling wines with food made by myself.
The festive time is giving us an opportunity to drink Champagne, Cava, Lambrusco etc.
Blini (Russian style pancakes) with Sour Cream and Caviar & Oudinot Brut NV CHAMPAGNE | France / Épernay
Velouté d’épinards (cream of Spinach) with Garlic & lemon Croutons & Weingut Markus Huber – Grüner Veltliner Brut 2014 |
Austria / Getzersdorf
Poached Cod Fillet on Red Quinoa and Sweet Baby Peas with Seaweed Stock & Hererat El Padruell – CAVA NV | Spain / Penedès
Smoked Breast of Duck with Cherry Cumberland, Porcini Pâté, Lemon Curd and Sourdough Toast & Ermete Medici – LAMBRUSCO secco | Italy / Lambrusco Reggiano DOC
Brazilian Style Quindim with Rose Petals, White Chocolate and Mixed Grapes Salsa & Giovanni Bosca – ASTI DOCG | Italy / Piedmont
Pleasure which giving me cooking is bigger always when I can share the food with other people.
I always dream about my own restaurant and to find out if I can manage it, I decided to start with the pop up events.
On those evenings, I presented 5 tasting dishes, cooked by myself to which, I proposed 5 different glass of wine.
My first pop up I have done in December 2016 and I hosted 14 Guests.
The menu during this evening was quite exciting:
Salmon Ceviche & Johann Donabaum – Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Johann | Austria / Wachau
Quail Broth & Equipo Navazos – La Bota de Manzanilla 42 | Spain / Sanlúcar de Barrameda
Porcini & Ricotta Ravioli & Cantina Tramin – Pinot Bianco Moriz | Italy / Alto Adige
Wild Venison & Altesino – Rosso di Montalcino | Italy / Tuscany
Tiramisu & Altesino – Vin Santo D’Altesi | Italy / Tuscany
The whole idea was about food and wine pairing and was great.
IN VINO VERITAS – In Wine We Trust. Although thousands of different grape varieties exist, most have only local relevance. A few, though, have a global reputation, either because they are widely grown or because of they responsible for giving one or more of the world’s great wines.
