Museum Of Art | Fort Lauderdale to Debut Monthly “Art of Wine and Food” Tasting Series This Summer

The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Nova Southeastern University, will merge delectable wine and food pairings with exquisite art during its first “Art of Wine and Food” tasting series this summer. The once-a-month series will give attendees a social, fun and educational opportunity to learn about delicious wines and foods, as well as the chance to enjoy the Museum’s current exhibitions Pearl and Stanley Goodman Latin American Collection and Recent Acquisitions from the Museum’s Latin American Collection.

The series will be hosted by Stephanie Miskew, Certified Specialist of Wine, and author of the blog Stephanie Savors the Moment.  Miskew works as a consultant organizing wine tastings, vintner dinners, and educational programs for both professional and charitable events. She also writes wine reviews and educational content for wine guru Gary Vaynerchuck’s Web site, Cork’d.

Also hosting will be Chef John Paul Kline of Delray Beach-based John Paul Custom Cuisine. Chef John Paul is dedicated to artfully preparing the highest quality food, using the freshest ingredients possible. His degree is in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales Culinary Institute in Providence, RI with extensive experience as a personal chef on Nantucket and at acclaimed restaurants in New England and the eastern seaboard.

Each event will feature three to four wines presented with food pairings.  Miskew will discuss the background and characteristics of each wine while Chef John Paul describes the inspiration and preparation of each dish.

All wines to be provided by Republic National Distributing Company. 

The June 24 tasting, titled “The Fabulous Flavors of Summer,” will showcase wines especially appealing during the summer months. A master gardener will help host the July 22 “The Enchanted Culinary Garden” tasting, which will include wine and food pairings inspired by herbs from the Florida garden. “Wines That Go Both Ways” on Aug. 26 will highlight wines and dishes that make the transition from summer to fall.
