Serving up a little White Point at the NSLC, Bridgewater
Guest Post by White Point Beach Resort
White Point is known for it’s magnificent white sand beach, the bunnies and yes, the food prepared by Executive Chef Alan Crosby and his team and served up by Sommelier Dan Tanner and his dining room team. Both hit the streets, or at least the floor of the Bridgewater location of the Nova Scotia Liquor Corportation on Thursday Aug. 12th.
The NSLC and Taste of Nova Scotia invited us to pair up a little White Point with wines from Argentina to showcase how well food & wine go together. From 4 – 7pm, it was a tasting festival for sure as the aromas filled the store and carried into the parking lot! So what were were sampling you ask…. Michel Torino paired with Chilled Noodle Salad with Sesame Chili Vinaigrette and Cold water shrimp Las Black Bonarda paired with Braised Beef ravioli with Rich Red Wine Reduction LF Lurton Malbec paired with Chilled pepper crusted beef tenderloin with Blueberry Black pepper compote Don David Chardonnay Reserve paired with House Smoked, Pulled pork sliders with Spicy slaw Las Moras Shiraz Rose paired with Chilled Strawberry Soup with fresh mint crème
Based on the feedback from those who attended (planned or by accident) – it was a huge success. Many people tried both dishes and wines they might not otherwise have AND liked them! It was a real pleasure to pair up to do this event – stay tuned, NSLC will have more to come we’re sure. As for White Point – our next off site tasting event will be the Port of Wines in Halifax Oct. 1 & 2! Click here for some pictures, compliments of the NSLC, from the event.
