On October 19th, Blue Door Fish located inside the surreal, yet iconic, Delano hotel in South Beach will be hosting a Wine Maker Dinner featuring five courses of Blue Door’s seafood-centric cuisine and wine pairings for only $95! Tommy Oldre of Tablas Creek Vineyards will be the host for the evening, guiding diners through the various wine selections and how they pair with Chef Claude Troigros’ novel seafood creations. Menu options feature lobster hors d’oeuvres, a coupling of scallops and foie gras, oysters with a wasabi caviar, swordfish, and to break up the fruits de mer theme, oxtail ravioli. Dessert will be a surprise to diners but is sure to please!
Among many South Americans, Peruvian cuisine is considered to be the the most extensive, most diverse, most sophisticated, and most elegant cuisine of the Americas. With influences from Spain, France, Italy, North and West Africa, China, Japan, and the native peoples of Peru, Peruvian cuisine is one that offers a great complexity of flavors that is unique to this country. Nevertheless, outside of Latin America, it is seldom understood or appreciated in full other than the disappointing experience of an overcooked ceviche or greasy rotisserie chicken.
