Pair With Chef Rachel Wine Dinner!
Chef Rachel Ponce specializes in creating exquisite dinners where the wine list is the source of inspiration for the dishes!
In this exciting 5-Course, 6 bottle dinner, experience wine pairings through Chef Rachel’s unique and provocative perspective…
…Rather than featuring similar flavors or aromas found in the wine; which can detract from the wine and change its flavor profile, she chooses to feature contrasting flavors to complement and elevate the beverage, which causes the palate to crave another bite, followed by another sip…following by another…well you get the idea.
This perspective results in, say, a Paso Robles Graciano paired with Wagyu Ribeye with Royal Sturgeon Caviar, Squid Ink Breadcrumbs, and Caramelized Onion; or perhaps a Roussane & Grenache Blanc Blend paired with Coconut Polenta, Asparagus, Pea Shoots, and Guanciale.
…Isn’t this the way we all want to experience our food and wine pairings?
ESB Founder Keith Robinson will present fantastic wine selections from California (Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Napa/Sonoma), Italy and France to Chef Rachel for the dinner. She will then taste through the wines and build the entire menu around their flavor profiles.
Join us for this delicious, unique approach to a wine dinner; unlike any ESB has hosted before!
