Rhone Rangers Storm Auden's Kitchen


Bruce Auden and Chef Patricia Wenkus have announced a winemaker dinner at Auden's Kitchen for Thursday June 3rd at 6:30. There will be an actual winemakerâ??Eric Mohseni of Zaca Mesa. ZM, located in California's Santa Ynez Valley, is known for its Rhône Valley varietals, and many will be on offer that night. Grilled calamari salad will be paired to their viognier, for example. Lemony chicken pasta will find its match in chardonnay (ok, not actually a Rhône grape), a lusty syrah will be twinned to an equally assertive smoky duck breast with chipotle raspberry BBQ sauce, and the Z Cuvée (a blend of grenache, mourvedre, syrah and cinsault) will be served with a porcini- and garlic-crusted leg of lamb. For dessert, expect a white peach cream puff with ZM's late-harvest viognier. All of this can be had by calling AK at 210-494-0070 and committing to $55 plus tax and tip. Soon.
