Wine and swine, a match made in heaven. This is an evening devoted entirely to one helluva pairing. Another great pairing – two of our favorite COOK veterans! On the wine side of things is COOK’s go-to wine guy, Mitch Skwer of Vintage Imports. And the man behind the pork: chef-turned-butcher-shop owner, Nick Macri of Reading Terminal Market’s La Divisa Meats. Nick has taught classes across the city, won cooking competitions, and worked in some of Philly’s top kitchens, including Osteria and Southwark. Eventually, Nick took over the Border Springs Farm stand at Reading Terminal Market to realize his dream of having his own meat-filled storefront – La Divisa Meats. Join Mitch and Nick for a Spanish Rioja wine pairing dinner featuring a starter of pintxos upon arrival, served with gin and tonics, followed by white asparagus with bacon vinaigrette, paired with Monopole Rioja Blanco 2017; patatas Riojanas (stewed chorizo and potatoes), paired with Vina Real Rosado 2018; piquillo peppers stuffed with pork rillettes, paired with Siglo Saco Crianza 2015; slow roasted pig and Segovia style mushrooms, paired with Vina Herminia “Excelsus” 2014; and goxua (a layered dessert of pastry cream, whipped cream, sponge cake and caramel), paired with Lustau “Los Arcos” Amontillado Sherry.
