Pork & Pinot Wine Lunch at The Grand Richmond – July 5, 2015

PORK & PINOT

Is there any better food-wine combination?

The salty and fatty goodness of pork prepared several different ways. Combined with the refreshing and berry-rich taste of Pinot Noir.

On Sunday July 5, 2015 , 36 people had the privileged opportunity to enjoy a feast of both PORK & PINOT amidst the awesome beauty of The Grand Richmond.

The award-winning dining room of  The Grand serves up chef-inspired dishes that invite all of your senses. Naturally, this Pork & Pinot Wine Lunch was no different.

ENTRÉE
This first dish consisted of a salty and mouthwatering pork-enhanced risotto.

Shiraz Yum Cha Lunch at Davids – July 4, 2016

,

Our regular events at David’s Restaurant are always popular, given how they sell out so quickly so why not try a shiraz yum cha lunch!

Shiraz & yum cha do not match but I after being asked many times by guests to hold an event like this I decided to go ahead.
My logic behind this is that people love shiraz and love yum cha so why not give them the best of both worlds regardless if the wine & food match?

Did it work? Yes.

70 people attended this event.

Please enjoy this gallery of photos taken on the day!
