The folks at Four Flamingos, A Richard Blais Florida Kitchen, are having a wine pairing dinner and they’re taking Prisoners.
Actually, the wines they’ll be serving are from The Prisoner Wine Company in Napa Valley. The dinner is Wed., Oct. 26, at the wonderful new restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $175 per person and can be purchased here. (There is a limited number and only about 10 seats remained as of Monday afternoon.) The dinner will include a bottle of The Prisoner Chardonnay, personalized by an engraver that evening.
The four-course menu (see below) is being curated by executive chef Shelby Farrell is inspired by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya. That is significant because the winery’s name and flagship label were inspired by Goya’s Le Petit Prisonnier, a 19th century etching with a subtitle that translates to “the custody is as barbaric as the crime.”
The Prisoner isn’t just a cutesy name – the company is dedicated to fighting social injustices, including those in our prison reform system. So, you can attend the dinner, have some wonderful food and wine and know that you’re helping support a just cause (that aims to correct injustices).
