Reno, NV (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Mirepoix USA (enjoyfoiegras.com), a leading online purveyor of foie gras, caviar, truffles, Wagyu beef and other gourmet foods, is presenting a Five-Course Foie Gras Tasting and Wine Pairing event in Reno, Nevada, where the company is now based. Southern Wine and Spirits’ Wine Director, Kevin Riley, has hand selected each wine to perfectly complement each of the five courses served at the tasting event.
Five foie gras courses will be served cocktail party style at the September 28 tasting event including: Foie Gras Terrine with Pear Currant Chutney (served with a rich Alsatian Pinot Gris), Asian Spiced Foie Gras Torchon with Ginger, Carrot and Radish Sprout Salad (served with an aromatic Alsatian Gewürztraminer), Seared Foie Gras with Cabernet Balsamic Berry Reduction (served with a luscious Washington state red blend with black cherry and chocolate notes), Wagyu Beef Sliders with Seared Foie Gras, Duck Bacon, and Spicy Tomato Jam (served with "Shatter" French Grenache), and White and Dark Chocolate Foie Gras Truffles (served with Sparkling red wine from Piedmont, Italy).
Foie gras connoisseurs from California, Nevada, and other nearby states are invited to attend Mirepoix USA’s Five-Course Foie Gras Tasting and Wine Pairing event, and buy foie gras and expertly paired wines at the event. According to Laurel Pine, Mirepoix USA founder, “It is perfectly legal to buy foie gras in Nevada and transport the product back to California for personal use.” Pine added, “Our fall Foie Gras Tasting event in Reno, NV, is an exciting menu with expertly paired premium wines served with each of the five foie gras courses.”
The event will be held in a private club room in downtown Reno, Nevada. Wait staff will serve each course on passed trays and guests will be free to mingle in the room and on the outdoor poolside patio. Event guests will be able to watch the preparation of each course in the open demonstration kitchen. A similar event held last April in Reno sold out, and Mirepoix USA’s September 28 event is expected to sell out also.
