Grilled Kabobs, Italian Sausage, Mexican street corn, corn dogs are delightful in a carnival setting with big tents, fun rides and clowns.  The tricky part is to transform these foods into gourmet dishes and pair them with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Glenora Wine Cellars, Chateau LaFayette Reneau and Zugibe Vineyards.  Foodies will love the creative way our Executive Chef John McNabb will construct each course.  It is sure to include cotton candy atop a baked Alaska with other surprises in store.  This is a dinner fit for the young at heart.
