A wise man once said, “A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.” This sentence could not be truer, particularly when it is good wine, matched perfectly to your meal. Yet, often, one takes for granted the importance of the sommelier, that vital expert who will take your dining experience from being merely good to excellent.
I mentioned a little while ago that I have started working with Jason Black in a new company called Empire. Part of what we do is create awesome foodie events. Remember Eat Your Words? That was Empire.
This time we bring you Three Blind Mice, an event designed to highlight the importance of the sommelier.
For one night only, we are taking three iconic Hong Kong Chefs – Patrick Goubier, Jeremy Biasiol and Anthony Fletcher – and three of Hong Kong’s best sommeliers including Sarment’s Sebastien Chevalier. One person alone has chosen 15 wines, keeping them a closely guarded secret. The sommeliers know neither the menu, nor the wines; their goal will be to identify each of the wines and pair what they feel is the best match for your four-course dinner. You will be able to try the wines and also have a go at guessing yourself.
It should be a fun, unique event with excellent food and wine, of course!
Here are all the details you need:
When: Monday 28th October
Where: Chez Patrick, 2/F Garden East, 222 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai
Cost: $888 (profits go to charity)
