Fun for Foodies and Wine Lovers

Posted on Sep 26 by SEASONS Magazine

Have you ever wondered how Santa Barbara County wines would fare in head-to-head competition with wines from Napa Valley?

Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café will have the first-ever Santa Barbara vs. Napa Valley “Blind” Wine Dinner on Friday, October 7. Starting at 6:30 p.m., Executive Chef Chris Joslyn will prepare a gourmet five-course meal highlighting the fresh, local ingredients of the Central California Coast—each course paired with two wines—one from Santa Barbara County and one from the Napa Valley.

The wines will be served “blind” and not identified until the end of the evening.

The menu:

First Course (Sauvignon Blanc):
Scallop Ceviche with Citrus, Hearts of Palm, Fennel,  Mache and Verjus Vinaigrette

Second Course (Chardonnay)
Tart Fourme d’ Aumbert: Blue Cheese and Puff Pastry; Frisee, Herbs

Third Course (Pinot Noir)
Smoke Roasted Salmon with Chanterelle Mushroom, Bacon, Crispy & Roasted Celery Root; Pinot Soubise

Fourth Course (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Sirloin Chateau with Salsify, Winter Greens, Bone Marrow Flan and Shallot Veal Jus

Dessert Course (Syrah)
Chocolate Fondant with Spiced Poached Pears and Creme Caramel
