Sure you could surprise your mom with a bouquet of peonies and a bottle of her favorite Pinot on Mother’s Day this year. Awww, honey, bless your heart, that’s so sweet! Or you could help her forget that well-intentioned Red Hat Society membership you bought her for Christmas and gift her with the Best Mother’s Day Present Ever.
On Saturday, May 7th, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm, Herons at The Umstead Hotel in Cary will host a chocolate and wine tasting that sounds like it just may be the balm for any damaging deeds done in the last year and, more importantly, the way to win the title of Favorite.
Chef Scott Crawford and his crew will lead participants through the following pairings:
Chocolate + Wine Menu
White Chocolate Cake, Citrus, Toasted Coconut, Sesame
Tocai, Movia Winery, Brda, Slovenia
Milk Chocolate, Salty Caramel, Popcorn, Peanut Butter
Chardonnay, Stoller, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Dark Chocolate Mousse, Medjool Date Puree, Rosewater
Malbec, Catena, Mendoza, Argentina
Foie Gras Torchon, Chocolate Sauce, Hazelnuts, Sea Salt
Sauternes, Chateau St-Vincent, Bordeaux, France
Although you may get a bit tipsy between the Tocai and Sauternes, the Chef himself is not available for purchase. Ladies, behave.
The event is $45 per person inclusive of tax and gratuity. For reservations please call (919) 447-4200 send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
