Join Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer & Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster Garrett Oliver as they square off to pit their respective expertise against each other alongside former Top Chef contender Ariane Duarte’s amazing gastronomical line-up.
All net proceeds from the evening will be donated to World Cares Center, a nonprofit group working within Haitian communities. World Cares Center fosters sustainable, locally-led disaster preparedness, response and recovery efforts. World Cares Center’s work supports groups such as EDEYO, a Haitian school founded by Montclair residents in Port au Prince, My Father’s House Orphanage, the Family Health Clinic and many other local groups in Haiti.
As we mentioned above, the theme of this event is a competition! Fred and Garrett are tasked with selecting a wine (from Amanti Vino) and beer (from Brooklyn Brewery) to pair with each of Ariane’s challenging, mouth watering courses described below.
At the conclusion of each course, a panel of judges will evaluate the success of Fred and Garrett’s pairings and select a winner. But wait, you count too! We will also poll the audience after each course and will include your vote in the tabulation.
Grab a napkin…
Let the pairings begin!
