Museum Of Art | Fort Lauderdale Continues “Art of Wine and Food” Series, Apr. 28

The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Nova Southeastern University, continues its “Art of Wine and Food” tasting series on Apr. 28 with locally renowned chefs and Certified Specialist of Wine Stephanie Miskew. The series gives attendees a social, fun and educational opportunity to learn about delicious wines and foods.

Each event within the series will be co-hosted by Miskew, author of the blog Stephanie Savors the Moment.   April 28 will feature Chef Remy Gautier of Argentelle in Fort Lauderdale, for “The Rhone Rangers: Explore France’s Rhone Grape Varietals Produced in the U.S.A.!”

During each tasting, attendees will enjoy three to four wines presented with food pairings. Miskew will discuss each wine, the region it is from, color, aroma, flavor, etc. Each chef will describe the food experience and how the accompanying dish, artfully prepared and using the freshest and highest quality ingredients, was created. During and after each presentation, guests are encouraged to discuss the wines and pairings and will have the opportunity to ask questions; then socialize before moving on to the next wine.

With 30 years of professional culinary experience in the U.S. and in France, Chef Remy Gautier founded Argentelle Café and Catering in Fort Lauderdale in 2006.
