Description: Shubie?s, The Market Place for Every Taste, announces its first annual “Corks & Forks” Wine & Food Festival on Saturday, May 9th, 2009 from 11am to 4pm. Free of charge and open to the public.
“Corks & Forks” offers the opportunity to taste wines from France, Spain, Argentina, South Africa, Chile, Italy and California.
Attendees will also enjoy the sampling of a wide variety of cheeses and charcuterie from local and national artisans! Taste wine, cheese and charcuterie Cabernets, Pinot Noirs and Merlots. Sample a new Pinot Grigio, a Chardonnay that you haven?t tasted in years – or a new blend that you?ve haven?t heard of! Try any of the many delicious cheeses: hard or soft, mild or sharp. Tasting options abound from artisans including Jasper Hill Farms, Narragansett Creamery, Maplebrook Farms, Springbrook Farms and Shy Brothers Farm. And don?t miss the many charcuterie samples that include Fra?Mani?s selection of hand-crafted salumi. Small bites. Big flavors.
Shubie?s Chef Lynne Aronson will also be on hand sampling her magnificently prepared creations in special Tapassize “sample bites” at “Corks and Forks”.
Sample bites will be prepared with many of the featured ingredients available for tasting at the event. A former New York City chef/restaurant owner, Chef Lynne has helped Shubie?s transition from primarily a wine destination to a what is now a wine and prepared foods “must” on the North Shore.
Whether you choose an option from the Cafe, the amazing prepared foods case, the C&L FoodBar or from the full-service catering menu, Chef Lynne?s creations are unmatched in taste, preparation and presentation.
“We are thrilled to be holding the Corks & Forks event to share all that Shubie?s has to offer,” said Carol Shube, coowner of Shubie?s. “We?d like people on the entire North Shore and beyond to know about all the great wine and food options right here at Shubie?s.” Added George Shube, Shubie?s co-owner, “In today?s busy times with hectic schedules, we?re just one stop away from making life a bit more simple and a lot more tasty!” Shubie?s also stocks a wide array of housewares, kitchen gadgets and gift items – great for when you need that “little something”!
“Corks & Forks” is the first in a series of Shubie?s palate-pleasing events planned for spring and summer.
