Fine wine and gourmet food tasting ahead this week

April 23, 2013 by  

Later this week, it might be worth taking a drive to Fort Lauderdale for the Wine and Food Pairing class at Fine Spirits Wine and Liquor, at 5660 S. Flamingo Rd.

Just 30 minutes from Doral, this class will instruct participants on the finer points of pairing wine with different gourmet foods. This five course event is a tasting event, no recipes will be provided. The class is led by Chef Jorge Montes and Harmeet Aurora.

Food includes salmon tartar, Yukon Gold gnocchi, roasted apple and celeriac soup, roasted beef shank, and espresso panna cotta, along with accompanying wines. The class lasts approximately two hours and everyone who attends must be age 21 or older. It takes place this Thursday, April 25, beginning at 7:30 pm. For more information, call (954) 434-6869.

Also on Thursday, and just a little bit closer to Doral, it’s digital business cards at the ready for a meeting of the Younger Women’s Old Boys’ Networker from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at PAX Miami, at 337 SW Eighth St.

This is an opportunity for women to network informally with other professionals, and offers an excellent opening for women who want to share the best qualities about their job, who are looking for a new job, or who just want to meet other businesswomen and get ideas for possible implementation into their own ventures.

It will not be strictly business, however, as there will be dancing and a free samba performance with Rose Max Samba. For more information, call (305) 640-5847.
