Last week I attended a special public event that taught me you can indeed have it all!
Creative dishes paired with inspired cocktails held in a breathtaking venue all for an unbeatable price.
The “Signature Tasting Series”in the Opal at Auzuridge.
The evening’s festivities began after a quick (included) shuttle out to Priddis, the home of Azuridge, where guests were welcomed with a glass of bubbles and encouraged to circulate and mingle through the Estate.
The main event that night included 6 of Alberta finest chefs and mixologists (3 of each), who were invite to compete in teams to create the best tasting pairings.
Armed with a voting sheet, the crowd mingled and snacked at their leisure as they contemplated which perfect duo to vote for.
And after a 2 hour tasty deliberation the winners were announced.
Azuridge’s own proud chef, Chef Yoshi, with Alberta Waygu Beef two ways: beef on a bun, with a side of tender short-rib. And for the compliments, the Ladybear Garnet with a spritz of Absynthe by the famed Stephen Phipps of National’s Bourbon Room. A simplistic look with complex ingredients.
Deserving winners indeed.
The night concluded and everyone was in agreeance:
3 superb plates paired with 3 unique cocktails, transportation, stationary food tables and a view like no other. It was the best $39 any of us had ever spent!
It’s no wonder that the event quickly sold out.
Azuridge has figured out the science behind a perfect party, and you can bet everyone in attendance will be impatiently awaiting their next!
I hear it will involve desserts!
