Black Sails Wine Dinner | April 2017

Posted by KMGuru on May 12, 2017 11:52:54 AM

We like to pick fun themes—pirates, Vikings, tv shows. But sometimes there’s more to our themes than a fun trend. Sometimes we pick a theme to honor cultures—especially the heritages of our regular wine dinner guests. When we had the Scandinavian dinner, we had guests whose grandparents actually immigrated over from Sweden. This month, for our Black Sails dinner, we honored two very loyal wine dinner guests who lived in the San Martin for two years and another guest from Puerto Rico, so this Caribbean dinner became important to us (not just so Arianne’s could dress up in a pirate costume).

It’s easy to Google a recipe, and recipes definitely have their place, but what happens when your phone takes a plunge in the sink right in the middle of cooking? What if your wifi decides to quit working? Whether you’re a well-seasoned cook or not, there are some foods you should just be able to cook off the top of your head by your mid 20’s. It’s part of being an adult. We wanted to give you a few ideas of foods that don’t necessarily require a recipe, but rather a state-of-mind and basic understanding of molecular gastronomy (don't worry, that’s just a fancy term for food science).

Viking Wine Dinner | March 2017

Posted by KMGuru on Mar 30, 2017 5:01:57 PM

When most people think of Scandinavians, they probably think of super svelte figures with thick golden locks, getting out of the sauna, and eating lots of hearty meals with friends and family. And that stereotype is pretty true! Some of them have brown hair, though. Nordic people really know how to live. In fact Scandinavians, are rated the most happy, healthy people in the world! So of course, we were really excited to showcase their rich culture and cuisine in a wine dinner.
