It was such an honor to participate in our recent event at the James Beard House in New York City. Chef Heyer created the summer New Jersey fresh ingredients menu, and I was happy to pair the wines. Sommelier Terri Baldwin and Chef Corey Heyer pictured in the famous kitchen at the James Beard House. My last blog explained all the food and the wine, but I wanted to share a few pictures from the evening itself. One of the best restaurant critics of food, wine and service of all time was there to support us, my friend Valerie Sinclair. It’s so much fun to talk the biz with those who are...

  Chef Heyer In the Kitchen at the James Beard House. What an honor it was to be back in the kitchen of The James beard House last week!

Pio Cesare Wines Our recent Italian wine dinner featuring the wines of Pio Cesare was a great success. We had two wonderful speakers, Sergio Zecca and Charles Ferrara, who both represent Maisons Marques & Domaines. All the wines served were red, with the exception of one white which I thought was fabulous, the Cortese di Gavi 2011. The beauty of this wine is stainless tanks which help the wine exhibit beautiful fresh fruit with clean, crisp, and aromatic flavors that lead to nice weight on the palate. I like to characterize the wines I drink as light weight, medium weight, and hea...
