Wine Dinner: If Wine Could Talk + A Culinary JourneySeptember 21 2021 | 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM
4972 Big Island Dr, Jacksonville 32246
Chef Tom Gray has collaborated with local authors Kara Joseph and Jeffrey Spear to transport your taste buds on a guided tour of food and wine from around the world. The three have put together a menu that illuminates their extensive travel history and knowledge of wine pairings.
For added fun, we will be serving the wines blind, so that Kara can walk you through the flavor profiles and personal stories behind each. The menu is Chef Tom's adaptation of dishes featured in Jeffrey's book, My Life In Gluttony: A Culinary Adventure. Jeffrey will use his gift of culinary storytelling to guide you through each course prepared by the Prati Italia team, that reflect his journeys all over the globe.
