I've been lucky enough to collaborate with some great people in the hospitality industry to bring wine packages to their guests as an added value. Restaurants, Inns, B&Bs and small business have all called on me to help them set up something special for their customers.
KARAMOOR FARMS/ESTATE “NUIT DES BLANCS” NIGHT OF WHITE WINES
On August 29th, 2019, we celebrated "Une Nuit des Blancs," A night of white at Karamoor Estate Vineyard & Winery - right in my backyard (Fort Washington, PA). This was an amazing opportunity for me and my friend/chef Leslie Frankel-Avila to put our minds together and come up with a menu that embraced the moment.
Anticipating a hot summer night, we went with a light, airy menu that danced magically alongside of Karmaoor's crisp and refreshing whites. From Sauvignon blanc paired with a watermelon, beet and grapefruit salad to a smokey Viognier with grilled nectarine shortcake, Leslie's food was a smash hit. Based on the smiles and the silence, I think our group was enjoying every sip & bite!

We went with a "world Cup" theme in honor of the ongoing tournament and also, as a test to see if US wines can stand a chance against European wines. I partnered with friend and chef Leslie Frankel to craft a pairing menu that scored a huge win with the fans.
