Wine Dinners at Le Puy - May 22 with Gilbert Henry

Table is set!

Appetizers paired prefectly with Knudsen Block Argyle Bubbly
Le Puy hosted a wonderful wine dinner in May.  Our guest chef, Gilbert Henry of Cuvée Restaurant in Carlton, was our honorary first chef at this first wine dinner event.

He started the evening with mini quiches, hummus & crostini, and paté which we paired with Argyle's Knusden Block sparkling wine.

The second course, a lox style smoked salmon on a bed of arugula with Soléna Pinot Gris was bright and fresh.

A lovely baby green salad with french herb vinaigrette for a palette cleanser and then on to the Moroccan Lamb Stew and cuscous. WillaKenzie Pierre Léon Pinot Noir and Owen Roe Cabernet Sauvignon dueled for a best pairing with this course.

The final treat was a duet of creme brulée - vanilla and szechwan pepper!  Magnificent with ArborBrook's Sydney Semillion.

A wonderful inaugural wine/chef dinner for Le Puy!
