Wine and Food Pairing Fundraiser - Wed. 11/3/2021

The Cerro Coso Community College Foundation and Mac’s International Cuisine are teaming up to host a Wine and Food Pairing Fundraiser on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Learn the art of Wine and Food Pairing with Wine Expert Eric Le Barbé from France. 

A Sensory Experience that includes a four-course gourmet meal by Mac's Owner and Chef Kent McGowan, and a series of discussions and exercises ranging from identifying basic wine characteristics, including visual, aroma, taste, and texture (acidity, sweetness, oak, tannin, body, etc.), to basic food characteristics and anchors of each (sweet, sour, bitter, salty, fattiness, body, etc.).

Learn how these characteristics contrast and complement each other from Wine Expert Eric Le Barbé drawing on his restaurant experience in France and the UK and working 18 years in Sensory Research for E. & J. Gallo Winery.

This event is a fundraiser for the Cerro Coso Community College Foundation that supports the financial needs of the students and college.
