Madera, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
The Vineyard Restaurant in Madera will once again be hosting a special dinner as part of the second annual Madera Pomegranate Celebration.
The evening, which will showcase the versatility and flavor enhancement attributes of pomegranates, will take place Thursday, Nov. 1 starting at 6:30 pm.
“They’ve prepared an amazing menu once again. I honestly can’t wait for this dinner, I think I’m looking forward to it more than Thanksgiving dinner,” said Jarrod Lyman with the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau and chairman of the Madera Tourism Alliance. The MTA is a committee of the Madera Chamber of Commerce and is putting on the week-long Madera Pomegranate Celebration.
The evening will start off with pomegranate infused appetizers and a glass of San Joaquin Wine Company’s Pomegranate Sangria, followed by a green salad with pomegranate vinaigrette. The main course will feature pan-seared duck breast with a pomegranate glaze. Desert will be a very special pomegranate sorbet.
“Knowing what the talented staff at The Vineyard can create, combined with pomegranates, this is going to be an amazing evening,” said Lyman.
The cost is $30, not including tax and tip. To reserve your set, call The Vineyard at 559 674-0923 or visit http://www.VineyardRestaurant.com.
