'The Art of Fine Food and Wine Meet in Brooklyn', a Wine Dinner with Samuel Delafont and Chef Tyler Kord by Philip S. Kampe
On Tuesday, April 26th, No. 7 Restaurant at 7 Greene Street, Brooklyn (near Barclay's Center) will host a wine and food dinner featuring two pioneers in their respective fields pairing their creations together.
Tyler Kord, known for the No.7 Slip On Chef's Shoe--a new concept shoe from Vans--and Bon Appetit fame. as being named as one of the best new restaurants in the country (2008) joins ranks with Samuel Delafont, winemaker extraordinaire, from the Languendoc region in southern France. The two will join forces in making and pairing a dinner that will be unique and groundbreaking.
Mr. Delafont explores vineyards in search of top quality wines that have just fermented. He then selects the finest batches from the renowned estates and then blends the wines with a clear idea of the wine he wants to create. His goal is to reach the 'notion of balance', where the finesse and extraction meet a balance that identify the terroir and style. By using specially developed stainless steel tanks for this process, we can bring finesse, freshness and balance to each bottle of wine.
Samuel Delafont will be flying in for the evening to pair his wines with the food of Chef Tyler Kord.
It will be a night to remember.
