Introducing your star student teams from the Culinary Institute of America, serving the 2017 Country Garden Party...
Because what goes better with rosé than gourmet bites prepared by teams of America’s up and coming star chefs? We believe wholeheartedly in our motto, that every day pairs better with rosé, and seek to make your day on June 17th at our Country Garden Party the best pairing yet. We want to celebrate the global nature of this wonderful wine and therefore are honoring the four main production regions of rosé wine: France, Italy, Spain, and California. Each tasting “region” will feature an inspired food pairing to match the 35 wonderful wines we will pour for you, all winners from our 2017 competition. And the talent? Professor Lars Kronmark of the Culinary Institute of America lead the competition that resulted in the following teams:
Raghav Chaudhary (Ottawa, Canada); Sierra Peterson (Vallejo, CA), Erik Ricca (Costa Mesa, CA)
Caitlyn Decker (Pittsburg, Kansas), Erik Jongewaard (Long Beach, CA)
Aaron “C.J.” Johnson, III, Daisy Yoo (Los Angeles, CA)
Rachel Cohen (San Francisco, CA), Charles Fulbright (San Francisco, CA), Krista Stanley (Raleigh, NC)
Picture yourself on a sundrenched hill in California wine country, surrounded by blooms and historic buildings, glass of rosé in one hand, gourmet food pairing in the other…it’s absolute heaven, and it can be yours here. We still have a few tickets left and are eagerly counting down the days to June 17th!! Bring on the Country Garden Party, bring on the food and wine festival vibes. Join us in making a toast to rosé, with rosé – because it really does pair better with every day.
