Two Jean Smullen Events - Prime Cuts & Premium Wine
In South Africa most young men learn the art of cooking over a Braai. They learn at an early age that to master the basic art of cooking meat is an important life skill. The wine culture too is strong in South Africa, everyone there knows that great glass of red wine goes hand in hand with a perfectly seasoned steak. Want to know more?
Come along to the special Prime Cuts & Premium Winenights. Learn about what to look for, how to assess quality and then how to skilfully cut and cook meat. Do you know your flank from your rump? Where do the prime cuts come from? This innovative and educational evening will reveal lots of interesting information about the art of choosing, buying and cooking meat.
Dublin:- Ely Wine Bar & Brasserie, on Wednesday 31st October, 2012. Ryan Stringer Executive Chef will be on hand to share his expertise and knowledge about meat and the art butchery.
Cork:- Barry’s of Douglas, on Wednesday 14th November, 2012. Alan Murphy, Chef at Barry’s in Douglas has many years experience as a specialist meat chef. His years of working in country houses means he has a great knowledge of meat and game. But there’s more.....
Wine & Meat .... When the fat and protein found in the beef meets the tannin found in a red wine, a chemical reaction takes place . Cooking the prefect steak is relatively easy, but the high heat creates complex, assertive flavours, ranging from sweet to savoury. These bold flavours need a wine with enough body and boldness to stand up to them, so what to choose?
South African wine sits well at any table and wine expert Jean Smullen will take you through a range of top quality wines that are a perfect match with meat. We will look at some of the best South African wines including Nederburg; Durbanville Hills; Fleur du Cap; Two Oceans; and Drostdy Hof and we’ll match them with a selection of meat dishes. The evening will start with bubbles, enjoy a glass of the very elegant Cap Classique from Pongrancz.
Tickets Priced: €25.00 per person.
