That's a clue to the theme. For this potluck, your job is to make a dish including the earth element (in any way your imagination desires). The earth element theme means include wild mushrooms, herbs and/or lots of greens. It can be an appetizer, entree, salad or dessert. You make a dish with an earthy component and don't tell us any more than that in advance. Please bring a written out list of the ingredients in your dish.
That's where I come in. At Pairings Portland Wine Shop, the focus is on organizing wine with attention to what they pair with. At this event, I'll share some of my thoughts and tactics on how to pair wine & food based on whatever food shows up at 6:30.
You'll learn ideas on pairing, have a taste experience of how each dish present can change your experience of a single wine, and get to mix & match 4 wines chosen as partners to the potluck fare.
$25 per person. You'll get a half glass of bubbly on arrival, then 4 wines poured freely with the potluck.
Whosever dish is voted favorite by the group, gets a $15 gift certificate to a 5-wine flight at Pairings Portland.
