On Tuesday, June 23, 2015, local specialty food markets will come together (cue the Beatles song) over some great food and amazing wine.
Bistro V & Patisserie, Greenwich Avenue
6:30 PM Reception
7:00 PM Multi-course Wine Dinner
What hat was once considered to be “old school” is now very much back and here to stay.
Specialty markets have found their way back from the mega-market mentality and are providing consumers with quality food for how people are eating today. Join Greenwich Cheese Company, Fleisher's Craft Butchery, Fjord Fish Market, Glenville Wine & Spirits and Bistro V & Patisserie for an amazing evening of food and wine and a virtual tour of a day in the life of a busy cheesemonger, butcher, fishmonger, wine expert, chef and baker.
Bistro V & Patisserie chefs will be creating a multi-course dinner event which highlights responsibly sourced, fresh, quality food. Guests will be able to meet these talented market owners and learn about what is taking place in today's food world and the access we all have to great quality food and what both the market owners' role is in all of this - as well as the consumer.
“Education is such an important part of what we do, “says Laura Downey, co-owner of Greenwich and Fairfield Cheese Company, “What animal is the milk from and from what region of France was the cheese produced? What does “farm-raised” fish really mean? And ultimately a consumers’ questions are answered when they taste the fresh pork from Ox Hollow Farm in Roxbury CT that was brought to the butcher whole to be cut into pork belly, butt, shoulder or tenderloin – and even sausage and pate.”
Food and wine enthusiasts will come together on June 23rd, 2015 to meet these passionate market owners and experience a multi-course dinner featuring their products.
Bistro V Executive Chef Erik Erlichson will showcase these amazing products in a variety of ways, bringing out the best in each ingredient.
Wine pairings will be presented by Glenville Wine & Spirits, one of the oldest wine and spirits shops in Greenwich.
An added highlight will be the crusty breads and French pastries from Patisserie V, which are prepared daily in the wee hours of the morning to be available for customers by sunrise – another wonderful art form that thankfully has not been lost.
