Wine Matching At Christmas

Boxing Day Gala Dinner - 2017

Katalin Kiszel-Kohari - December 12, 2019


For the last three years I have been doing the wine flights for Boxing Day and New Year's Eve Gala Dinner in the hotel I work. I thought it would be a good idea to put them out here too. Usually it is well-appreciated even if the Head Chef or the Pastry Chef change their minds half-way through when I have already bought the wines. It happens, if they cannot get the right ingredient or the ingredients are not there in quality. Through December, as I am busy otherwise, I will put these up on my blog one by one. It might have some benefits for others...
