“Pop-Up” Gastronomy: Argentine Open Fire Cooking

Wednesday, July 9, 2014
Start: 6:00 pm

Food and wine are the first markers of culture - belief and geography made manifest on a plate and in a glass. Join us as we celebrate food, wine, eating and drinking in our hyper-regional series: Pop-Up Gastronomy on the Waterfront. Our chefs and sommeliers will present you with multi-course food, wine and beer dinners and brief discussions of the influence of each region on their work.

The seatings at each of these events will be limited to 100 people. Tickets can be purchased through ECHO at $65 for members and $75 for all others (ticket price includes dinner and a glass of each of the featured wines.) If last year’s very popular series is any indication, they’ll sell out fast. Each evening will have a different theme and on the last evening, August 20th, Bluebird will be pairing 7 Trappist beers with a delicious 7-course meal!

July 9: Argentine Open Fire Cooking
