Since we’ve been on a bit of an Instagram kick recently, we wanted to share what Townsend Wentz did last night. Wentz, who is the chef/owner of East Passyunk’s Townsend, was breaking down a whole pig for tonight’s Garces Foundation Gala and he instagrammed each step.
Click on through to follow the process, and check out the captions for some helpful hints.
By collaborating with Townsend Wentz at Townsend, the two will create an awesome pairing dinner, scheduled to take place on October 20th at 7 p.m.
For $75 a head, guests will enjoy five courses of chef Wentz’s much-praised French fare, complemented by rare and special wines from Forrester’s portfolio–and will have the opportunity to chat with the award-winning winemaker. So if that kind of thing gets you super-excited, now you know where to go.
Check out the five course tasting menu below, along with the wines that will be paired with each dish.
Townsend, the two-month old but critically acclaimed restaurant, is hosting a Five-Course, “Three Way” Wine and Cheese Pairing Dinner on Thursday, July 17th. Chef-owner Townsend Wentz and General Manager/Wine Director Lauren Harris put together the night of five wines, five cheeses and five plates. “I’m always looking for new ways to share our food and our wines with our guests, and this dinner promises to be the first of many inventive pairing events,” Wentz said.
Tickets are $65 per person (not including tax and gratuity). Guests will get a taste of contemporary French flare and domestic and imported cheeses, all of which are paired with wines chosen by Harris.
