featuring the Wines of Joel and Sandrine Duffau
Friday, March 3 at 11:00am

Join Chef Jacques Haeringer for a very special Cooking Demonstration and Luncheon with Bordeaux winemakers Joel and Sandrine Duffau.

Joel Duffau follows the tradition of nine generations of winegrowers in his family and has inherited their passion for making superior wines. He grow grapes organically at both Château La Mothe du Barry and Château les Arromans in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, between Bordeaux and Saint-Émilion.  Joel and Sandrine have created around their vines in a bucolic setting in which to make great wines.

Chef Jacques will be demonstrating a delicious menu to complement the wines' elegance. The main course is the Navarin d'Agneau which showcases the season's first crop of vegetables and the delicate flavor of lamb, while the demonstration concludes with Île Flottante, a classic French dessert of meringue floating on a sea of crème anglaise.
