Hello sophisticated readers :)

We have just 5 tickets left for our first Food and WIne Tasting Evening!

We are going to try 7 wines and eat lots of food, and you will learn what goes well (and what doesn’t).

If you always choose the 2nd wine on the list in restaurants, whatever you are eating, or always choose the same bottle of wine to go with Sunday Lunch, then come along and broaden those horizons.

Join The Hertfordshire Wine School and The Local Kitchen in May for a Food & Wine Matching Evening at Park Hall in Harpenden and learn, through tasting, which food best accompanies which wine. A hand-picked selection of seven superb wines will be served, each with a tasting sample of delicious, locally-sourced, food specially prepared by The Local Kitchen.

The workshop will showcase seven popular and delicious styles of wine, starting with a seasonal fizzy and including a fresh, crisp New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, a smooth and silky Pinot Noir from Burgundy and a luscious dessert wine – just the sort of wine you might like to serve for indoor, or ‘al fresco’, entertaining this summer. We’ll also try the foods you can serve to make the wines taste even better. Think succulent, home-smoked duck, salmon, salami, cheese, asparagus and apple tart – one or more with each wine and all served in mouth-watering, bite-sized portions. We will also try some clashes to see what really doesn’t work!
As well as tasting some delicious food and wine we will examine some of the guiding principles of food-pairing and learn why some wine is not at all food-friendly! All food, wine, glasses, tasting notes and other materials will be provided – book now for just £35.

We have 5 tickets left for this event – it will be a lovely, sociable evening so feel free to come on your own, with a friend or partner. If you would like to come along, please visit http://www.hertfordshirewineschool.com to buy tickets.
