Tasters Society Wine Pairing Dinner Event at Bistro 82! Judgement of Paris

A 3 course wine dinner based on the Paris Wine Tasting in 1976, informally known as The Judgement of Paris. For each course, we will present a French and U.S. wine to compare side by side. Chef will present a French and U.S. tasting for each course. The tasting was a wine competition organized in Paris on 24 May 1976 by Steven Spurrier, a British wine merchant, in which French judges carried out two blind tasting comparisons: One of top-quality Chardonnays One of of red wines (Bordeaux wines from France and Cabernet Sauvignon wines from California) In many of the blind comparisons, the California wines rated higher than the French wines, causing quite a stir in the wine world. Even the argument that the French wines would age better was put to the test in San Francisco in 1978 where the California wines won handily. Now you become the judge! Menu: Sea scallop, potato gnocchi, fava bean, puree of English Pea, foie gras, King crab, herb roasted chicken thigh, Lyonnaise potato, petite greens, 45 Day Dry aged beef slider, pommes pont neuf poutine, dessert is chefs selection
