Bayway Cadillac is playing host to this scrumptious Wine & Food Week event

According to Constance McDerby, Founder of Wine & Food Week, “Even the most avid collector doesn’t have 100 premium bottles open all at one time. For the serious enthusiast, The Platinum Wine Vault Luxury Tasting is an oasis filled with crème de la crème wine selections served in ‘the big glass’ amidst a posh playground and who’s who of the wine world. Rub elbows with industry experts and taste an extraordinary selection of boutique, allocated, and powerhouse wines.|

Kady Miller, owner of Alchemy Bake Labs, is doing a dessert bar featuring tiramisu shooter cups, millionaire shortbread bites, raspberry almond pinwheel cookies, and bananas Foster. “Guests will experience elevated nostalgic desserts that deliver a flavor explosion,” she said. “Alchemy Bake Lab’s mini desserts have been defined as whimsical art.” A 20-year-old tawny port will make a beautiful companion to any of these genius creations.

Chef Austin Simmons will bring one of his signature creations from TRIS to pair with a carefully curated selection of bubbles. Attendees will love his Hamachi Tostada with shredded cabbage, crunchy peanuts, shaved onion, serrano, and white of mint drizzled in a Thai vinaigrette. It is the perfect complement to the 2009 Argyle Winery Brut Extended Tirage.

Chef Santiago De La Cruz of The Woodlands Country Club is a genius when it comes to building flavors, so the event organizers knew he would deliver properly when they asked him to create a bite to pair with a wine like a San Polo Brunello DOCG. Get ready to taste his Beef Short Rib Ravioli with a mushroom marsala glaze de viande, and a fresh tomato crudo garnished with arugula.

What will Chef Fernando Desa, International Executive Chef for GOYA Foods serve? How about Tortillas Bravas – crunchy Spanish omelet style tapas with a bravas sauce lending a bit of vinegary, smoky sweetness. A guarapo and pimento reduction with olives, chorizo, a splash of Unico Truffle Oil and a sprinkle of micro cilantro.
