Fried Empanadas are just the beginning.
Let's call them a gateway food….
On Thursday, Jan. 24, I'm partnering up with sommelier Ashley Vaughters to present an evening of tastes of Argentina–beginning with fried cheese empanadas and a sparkling Argentine wine, followed by a Torrontes with fish in a spicy Mar Del Plata sauce; a Pinot Noir with bruschetta a la Provenzal (mushrooms and ham); a young Malbec with gnocchi and tuco sauce; an aged, oaked Malbec with steak and chimichurri sauce; and a late-harvest Torrontes with alfajores, the classic Argentine sandwich cookie filled with dulce de leche. This is truly a special evening! I hope to see you there for fun, flavor and wonderful information~use the link above to register.
