Winemaker and Hollywood celebrity host wine dinner
June 13, 2012
Eric Dunham, enological legend and Walla Walla wine world luminary will share his award-winning, single vineyard "Artist Series Wines" at Tulalip Resort Casino on Saturday, June 23. In partnership with screen star and Washington native Kyle MacLachlan, the duo has created Pursued by Bear, Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Baby Bear Syrah.Both join culinarian extraordinaire Chef Perry Mascitti and his team for an evening of great sips, quips and exceptional food pairings under the direction of Tulalip Sommelier Tom Thompson. Guests will be served under the stars or by the fire on the Mpulse patio.
This rare summer star-studded evening will feature five dynamic food stations. Each showcases the diversity of Tulalip's culinary depth. The meat and fish grilling station offers guests a selection of six basting sauces, seasoning salt and assorted relishes. Among the plethora of vegetable station choices is a cedar grilled garden bundle, and attendees are invited to slide into the slider station to try the mini-halibut burger, Italian sausage focaccia and venison sliders.
As diners toss their way over to the salad section, they can nibble on everything seasonal. Chef Nikol will work her usual kitchen magic (done with sweetness) on a trio of sinful desserts including fried fruit pies and fudgesicles.
The Dunham/MacLachlan Winemaker Dinner begins at 5 p.m. and is priced at $115 per person. To purchase tickets for this and other Tulalip Resort Casino dinner series events, go to https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/250074.
