Winery Spotlight Dinner
May 22, 2019
Join us on May 22 for the second edition of the Winery Spotlight Dinner Series!
Guests will enjoy an evening featuring sumptuous dishes crafted by Executive Chef Jiju Paul and the Edmonton EXPO Centre culinary team paired with premier Spanish wines presented by winemaker Nathalie Bonhomme. The evening will take place in a modified long-table setting – perfect for mingling and sharing a culinary experience.
The menu for this edition of the Winery Spotlight Dinner will take you on a culinary journey through Spain. Our food tour of Spain begins on the sun drenched North East coast near Barcelona with an appetizer that takes a modern interpretation of a classic tomato dish from Barcelona. Next, we pass through the entire country to the Southwest to the Iberian Peninsula for a Spanish inspired pork dish. Then, we travel to Madrid, where a traditional seafood dish undergoes a makeover that renders it unrecognizable. Our next stop is Andalusia, Spain’s warmest region. The creativity of the industrious farmers, who combine Spanish flavors with fresh lamb, was an inspiration for our final entrée.
Don’t miss out on the incredible culinary and wine offerings of Spain right here at home!
Event is 18+
