The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Nova Southeastern University, continues its “Art of Wine and Food” tasting series with locally renowned chefs and Certified Specialist of Wine Stephanie Miskew in March and April. The once-a-month series gives attendees a social, fun and educational opportunity to learn about delicious wines and foods.
Each event within the series will be co-hosted by Miskew, author of the blog Stephanie Savors the Moment. March 24th, Chef Lenore Nolan-Ryan of Lenore Nolan-Ryan Cooking School and Catering in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea; and April 28th, Chef Remy Gautier of Argentelle in Fort Lauderdale will co-host.
During each tasting, attendees will enjoy three to four wines presented with food pairings. Miskew will discuss each wine, theregion it is from, color, aroma, flavor, etc. Each chef will describe the food experience and how the accompanying dish, artfully prepared and using the freshest and highest quality ingredients, was created. During and after each presentation, guests are encouraged to discuss the wines and pairings and will have the opportunity to ask questions; then socialize before moving on to the next wine.
