Here's how it works:
1. You bring a dish (appetizer, soup, entree, salad or dessert) in the theme. The theme for this potluck is 'Foods To Warm Up By'. Imagine it's cold. You want to make something to warm yourself up. So what 'cha gonna make? That's what we're looking for.
2. Once all the food is gathered, I (Jeff of Pairings Portland) share my thoughts on what wines I would pair with the gathered goodies as if this potluck was happening in my home. My plan is to share some easy to use tools on how to pair wine & food.
3. 4 wines are selected, corks are pulled, we sit around a bit table, we eat, we drink, play with how the combinations work (or don't), and talk about whatever till happily satiated sometime around 8:30.
4. Cost: $25 per person gets you some bubbly on arrival, 4 wines (the chosen 4 for the potluck), a 10% discount on any retail bottle purchases, and a $5 discount coupon to a future Pairings Basics Class.
Please arrive by 6:30 so we can start on-time. We will ask you to write out the ingredients in your dish, so feel free to make that out before you get here. Hope you can join the tasty fun!
