5 Course Tasting Menu & Wine Pairing

Saturday, February 11

This will be a night to remember…….

If you have never taken a class with us or experienced Chef Andy, this is your night. ¬†He has prepared a Valentines day dinner for those who consider themselves “Foodies”. As a classically trained Chef who thinks outside the box in his adaptation of recipes or while creating new, the combination of flavors, textures, colors, and the attention to detail goes unmatched. Chef Andy takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary by paying attention to those details for that is where the magic happens.

Each course if carefully considered, the ingredients working together to create flavor sensations on the palate, and to compliment each course proceeding.  Chef Andy takes full consideration of how a menu is put together so guests get the experience they have paid for.

Dave Palcek who manages our wines will be pairing a Red or White wine to accompany each course. Our wines are from small vineyards which produce some exceptional wines. We carry varieties from Napa all the way to Spain, so if you consider yourself a wine connoisseur, another reason to joining us for dinner.

It’s an evening of Love…..the love of food, the love of wine, and the love of those in your life. We look forward to see you.
