Sherry all the way

Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 6:30 – 9:00 pm
Play Wine and Food, 1 York Street (at Sussex Drive)

Put aside ALL notions of Aunt Mimi. Discover how truly wonderful sherries are. They’re delightfully versatile, food-friendly and stupidly inexpensive.

The tasting will be led by PLAY’s resident sommelier Grayson McDiarmid and J. Phillip Nicholson, the Guild’s co-founder and first president. Phillip is a huge sherry enthusiast since his days at Oxford.

This tasting consists of a full small-plate meal showcasing a unique style of sherry at each course along the way (a pair for each of four plates, with an aperitif to start and a special surprise to end). Each dish — created by Executive Chef Michael Moffatt, Chef de Cuisine Katie Ardington and their team of culinary wizards — will be designed to bring out the best in each of these under-appreciated over-the-top Spanish gems.

Guaranteed to make new sherry fans of even the most resistant non-believers!

This event has been generously sponsored and subsidized by Phil Nicholson and Steve Beckta to help raise scholarship funds.
