This event feels almost custom-made for me: Jerry Horn, AKA Dr. Champagne of Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant (he just wrote this wino piece last week on corkage) is hosting a ~CHAMPAGNE FEAST AT SCOTT HOWARD~ for 25 guests. The dinner includes five courses of Scott’s fully loaded cuisine, paired up with five fab Frenchie shampoos. There are about ten spaces left (which are rapidly filling up) so I’d reserve a spot sooner rather than later.
Here’s the deeeelish menu:
Course One: Trio of Fish: Ahi Tartare–scallions, avocado; Hamachi Crudo–pickled cucumber, curried mayonnaise, ponzu, herbs; Smoked Trout–truffled egg salad, crostini, herbs, with Pierre Peters Blanc de Blancs Millesime 1998 Mesnil-sur-Oger.
Course Two: Duck Confit Salad–frisee, soft egg, pancetta vinaigrette, with Deutz Blanc de Blancs Millesime 2000 Ay.
Course Three: Wild Mushroom Risotto, smoked bacon, Madeira jus, with Jean Vesselle Rose de Saignee 100% Bouzy Pinot Noir.
Course Four: Lamb Loin–braised greens, spring onion, truffled jus, king trumpets, with Pol Roger Brut Rose 1999 Epernay.
Course Five: Selection of Artisanal Cheese or Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta–olive oil, sea salt, fresh berries, with Billecart Salmon Brut Rose NV Mareuil-sur-Ay.
