The Garden City Historical Society will be hosting a wine and food pairing event based on the cookbook ‘Stirring the Pot.’

The elegant parlors of the Historical Society will be the setting for a sumptuous wine and food pairing dinner, hosted by culinary stars from Les Dames d’Escoffier New York, an organization of the top women in the fields of food, wine, hospitality. 

The event brings the Dames’ bestselling “Stirring The Pot” cookbook to life, with favorite family and elegant recipes from famous Dames like Lidia Bastianich and wine pairings curated by expert oenophile, Dame Ellen Negrin.  A cocktail hour with an Amuse Bouche and Prosecco will be followed by three courses with a wine pairing for each course. 

It will be an interactive dinner and evening: the Dames experts will discuss the food and wines and answer your questions.  Each attendee will receive a copy of “Stirring The Pot” that will be personally autographed by the author and recipe contributors.

Sensational Silent Auctions and Raffles will continue the evening’s immersive experience: Dine at some of New York’s chicest and most interesting restaurants, donated by the Dames who own them.  Bid on incomparable wines by the Magnum and basket, assembled by Dames who are sommeliers.  Visit a North Fork winery for a VIP Tour and Tasting with the Dame winemaker.  Take a “Create Your Own Gin Class”, coupled with a stay at the Lin boutique hotel in Greenport.  Legendary gourmet food prizes, including a coveted Caviar gift; and magnificent Mattituck Mushrooms; a basket bursting with Italian delicacies; a tower of the most decadent desserts from William Greenberg.  The world-famous Junior’s Cheesecake.  Authentic midwestern BBQ sauces and rubs.  And so much more. 

All for two good causes – a Scholarship in memory of Dame Karen Tenenbaum and to support the Historical Society’s educational and cultural programs, like The Student Art Contest & Exhibit.
