I’ve just emailed the ticket holders for tomorrow night’s Pop-Up Dinner to tell them the loation, which has been secret until now. We’ll be dining among the barrels and aging tanks at the new Quantum Leap Winery in Orlando’s Mills 50 district. This is going to be an exciting dinner, prepared by the chefs of East End Market, including: Jamie McFadden, Cuisiniers Catering and BarJme; Henry Salgado, Txokos Basque Kitchen (and Spanish River Grill in New Smyrna Beach); Rhys and Alexia Gawlak, Cuts & Craft Artisan Meats; and Elisa Scarpa, Fatto in Casa.
Our hosts for the evening will be Quantum’s owners, Jill Ramsier and David Forrester, who have selected the wines. The chefs have been careful to match their courses to the wines, so I know it’s going to be an extraordinary culinary event.
The dinner sold out within 36 hours of its announcement, which was made solely via my e-letter. Which means that if you’re not on the list of recipients, you may not have a chance of the next Pop-Up Dinner, tentatively scheduled for May. If you’d like to join us, you can sign up for my surprisingly infrequent and not-at-all annoying e-letter at this link.
