Garlic is the main event in this delightful and savory dinner.   Our chef will marinate it, broil it, sauté it, infuse it, and mix it, promising an aromatic experience.  Garlic aficionados will be impressed by the carefully selected varieties of garlic.  For those of you that might shy away from such a delightful meal, you may consider that ole folks have always thought garlic to be the “wonder drug” and has been reported to cure everything from the common cold to the “plague”.  Plus it does keep vampires away. This five course dinner will be paired beautifully with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayetter Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars.

When asked, “What are your signature dishes?” Our chef shies away from a definitive answer, because he has close connections with many of the dishes he creates.  These monthly wine dinners are ways for him to express his creativity and explore techniques and foods that he feels people will enjoy.  If you had to define the kind of chef he is, you would have to say that he cooks for the people. This dinner, scheduled during the height of harvest promises to be a gastronomical experience not to miss, as he works with local products to create flavors of the Finger Lakes that all of us will enjoy. This five course dinner will be paired beautifully with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayetter Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars.
