Corks And Chopsticks

The Wine Experience

“Corks And Chopsticks”

Cantonese Food and Wine Matching Banquet

This is popular for corporate events, department nights out or for groups who just enjoy food and wine.

Join Ian McNeill from The Wine Experience who will host a really unique culinary experience in an amazing setting. You will enjoy an evening of wines from around the world, taste good Cantonese food as well as learning about matching wines with Chinese food.

You will enjoy the experience of a Cantonese Banquet in the private dining room of Edinburgh’s top Cantonese restaurant (in my opinion), China Town in Athol Place. We have designed a special banquet menu for this event. There will be 2 dishes per course apart from the soup course and yes – wine with soup. You will have a different glass of wine for each course, carefully selected to match the dishes on that course. Before each course, I will talk about the wine and how it will match the flavours of the dishes.

For your corks and chopsticks experience numbers are restricted to a maximum of groups of 23 people.

You will enjoy a glass of wine with each course. Additional drinks can be purchased directly from the restaurant bar.

You may also also want to include a short wine tasting before dinner to sharpen up the taste buds and have a really fun start to the evening – ask for details.

I look forward to having a great evening with you.

The Wine Experience

Food and Wine Matching Experience with Old and New World Wines

Another gift idea for food and wine lovers and it is ideal for :-
Anyone who wants to learn about matching food with wine.
Anyone who finds choosing the right wine for a special meal is a bit of a lottery.

This is a very informal evening with a lot of interaction and discussion. No knowledge of wine is required but it does help if you do enjoy wine as we will be tasting a range of wines with a selection of canapes.

We will discuss the main grape varieties as well as which new and old world wines that you can pair with food. We will also cover the main flavours of food, as well as “difficult” foods that can be a challenge for wines.

Venue – The Royal Scots Club, 30 Abercromby Place, Edinburgh EH3 0BR
