Treat yourself to an evening of indulgence…
On Thursday, February 3, 2011, wine, cheese and chocolate lovers alike will gather for an evening of…well, decadence! Taking place the Westin Hotel from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, Decadence is one of the three upcoming events under the Savour food & wine Festival umbrella. This evening couldn’t be more of a deal as tickets are only $49+HST!
The other cool thing about this event is that Savour partners with NSCC’s to bring students from both the culinary and pastry arts program together to create the dishes. If only all ‘studying’ involved wine, cheese and chocolate! Sigh….
The first hour of the evening begins by enjoying succulent pieces of cheeses, paired with different wines. Each cheese is then transformed into a beautiful dish or hors d’oeuvre, matching the paired wine yet again.
The last part of the evening pairs decadent chocolate with wines, port and dessert wines. Taste the chocolate in its raw form, paired with a wine yet again, then tasting the chocolate transformed into a luscious dessert.
I was pouring at one of the tables last year, and will be this year again…though I fully intend to sneak off at some point in order to sample some of the incredible treats, both savoury and sweet! One of the coolest parts of this event though, is finding out which wines compliment which cheeses, and vise versa – and doing it all over again with chocolate.
So what are you waiting for? Go on… you deserve it!
