“Even for accomplished home cooks, making sushi can feel intimidating. That’s why we’ve gathered some experts and friends to share advice and techniques, and of course some favorite wines.” -- Angelina Mondavi, consulting winemaker for Flat Top Hills
NAPA, Calif. (PRWEB) April 28, 2021
Making it easier to enjoy the fresh flavors of sushi right at home, Flat Top Hills invites consumers to learn from Angelina Mondavi along with special guests through Rolling In Style, a series on Instagram Live in May. Designed to demystify how to create sushi-inspired dishes in a home kitchen, the three-episode event brings Angelina Mondavi, consulting winemaker, together with guests from Lundberg Family Farms, Eiko’s Modern Japanese and Osprey Seafood to share tips and ideas.
“Sushi and wine can be a really beautiful pairing. The crisp acidity of a Sauvignon Blanc or citrusy richness of Chardonnay play off fresh fish, while the savory notes in a Cabernet Sauvignon complement deeper flavors like unagi,” said Angelina Mondavi, consulting winemaker for Flat Top Hills and member of the fourth generation of the C. Mondavi family. “But even for accomplished home cooks, making sushi can feel intimidating. That’s why we’ve gathered some experts and friends to share advice and techniques, and of course some favorite wines.”
Hosted by wine and culinary personality Oscar Peralta of @Beyond.The.Taste, special guests will join Angelina Mondavi to talk about ingredients, techniques and great pairings. Live on @FlatTopWines on Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. Pacific, the full series includes:
