The Art of Food & Wine Pairing.

Every so often you get an event that warrants true indulgence. Last night was one such night. Sommelier Mia Martensson from The Winery of Good Hope was here to host an evening of wine and food pairing at Chefs Warehouse. We knew it was going to be good. But it was even better than expected. Liam didn’t hold back with his dishes, the wines were outstanding and everyone got into the swing of things. How could they not, with a menu that was, well, it’s difficult to describe, so we thought we’d just let you have a look yourself…  (And if you missed it, don’t worry, we’ll be doing more!)
