About the Event

Join husband & wife, Sommelier Alvaro & Chef Stephanie Chinchilla for a wine tasting & cooking event for an unforgettable evening celebrating those we love. Whether you have been in love for 30 years or you are just lighting that fire, this evening's event is thoughtful, stimulating, extraordinary and sure to impress the one who lights your fire.

Upon arrival, your evening will start with a Sparking Wine tasting, accompanied by a charcuterie hors d'oeuvre. The next coarse will be a demonstration on how to prepare Chef's famous stuffed mushrooms, accompanied by a Chardonnay tasting. The third pairing is a Cabernet & your entree coarse is hands on. You will learn how to properly prepare blue cheese crusted beef steak served with roasted potatoes finished with parmesan and fresh herbs, & candied carrots topped with sliced almonds. Your dinners climax is chocolate covered strawberries & a dessert wine pairing.
