The California Wine Dinner at The Shores Resort and Spa 2019
Wines featured by Steel Vineyards
Daytona Shores, Florida
The Shores Sip & Savor Wine Dinners bring me back to my roots as a chef.
I guess you can say I have had Writers Block because it has been awhile since I have written.
The Sip and Savor series in 2019 has been nothing short of spectacular leading us to the most recent dinner this past Wednesday night. Featuring 5 wines from
Steele Vineyards out of Lake County, California, presented by Pablo Alfaro and 5 courses from new Executive Chef Steven Bernstein and the creative cuisine of Chef Bradford Brody.
Overlooking the ocean on a spectacular evening with waves crashing many stories
below and with Jeremy and Andrea of "Are Friends Electric"
providing the musical backdrop a powerful great meal was served.
The 1st course featured a small delectable bite of Brie En Croute,
candied orange peel absolutely highlighted this first presentation which paired incredibly well with the citrus notes of the Shooting Star 2017 Savignon Blanc.
As I looked around and counted there were about 28 people in attendance. The dinners have become more popular recently and there is a great reason. I realized this as course number 2 hit our table
The 2nd course was one of those culinary journeys on a plate, that left you breathless as if you had just discovered a hidden waterfall. Black Tea Smoked Duck, Ramen Noodle Cake, Bok Choy & a Green Onion Oil, as I had my first bite I already knew the dish was spectacular as the aroma of smoke wafted around the table.
This dish flowed like sea smoke and was more then everything you ever tasted anywhere anytime.
the duck rendered to perfection, the crisp edges of the noodles, I thought "Chef Massimo Bottura"
would want to recreate this Ramen perfection, a new level of sophistication and it paired perfectly with the Writers Block Grenache.
The 3rd Course is simplicity and suave as they served a perfectly executed Gnocchi and Wild Mushroom plate, a touch of truffle on the nose actually accentuated the second course and paired with the Writers Block Petit Syrah it just moved you through the evening like the music just the right notes.
The 4th Course featured a Faroe Island Salmon, rich smooth velvety fatty and just a
delicious piece of fish served with Beluga Lentils & Cipollini Onions.
At this point we have been on the land the sea and the sky so naturally a Steele Stymie Merlot Reserve 2014 was a great choice to pair the main course with.
With the final and 5th course in sight a perfect espresso was served along side our Flour-less Chocolate Cake that had a Zinfandel Syrup and why not as we
washed it all down with the Steele Zinfandel 2014 from Catfish Vineyard.
What an incredibly successful dinner and maybe the best yet over the past two years.
Join us next month for the Florida Craft Beer Dinner Oct 25th.
