SEAFOOD AND WINE TASTING EVENT

We are planning a handful of tasting lunches to celebrate seafood - fish and shellfish, this is the perfect way to enjoy seafood as part of a healthy diet.  An exciting opportunity to learn something new with Master of Wine, Philippa Carr, who will provide expert tuition as part of the day. 

The session starts with a short demonstration with our chef trainers looking at the seafood dishes presented as part of the tasting. Philippa will then take the reigns to present a tutored wine tasting to match the seafood dishes that we have prepared for you. This includes 4 - 6  individual dishes as a first course.

After the pairing session our chef training team will cook and serve a seasonal seafood main course (roast cod with pancetta/pan-fried bass with butternut squash and sage and seasonal vegetables) and a simple pudding with tea and coffee to finish the session.




About Philippa Carr MW – Wine Guru, Writer and Presenter
 

 

It all began when a passion for wine was sparked at University where running the student Wine Circle went glass in hand with my studies and it dawned on me that I could make a career out of tasting and talking about wine.


I’ve been lucky to work in many different roles from buying for national retailers, managing a fine wine merchant, writing, teaching, presenting at numerous corporate and consumer events like Taste of London and the BBC Good Food Show and ‘starring’ alongside actors and chefs in videos and TV adverts. However, I’ve always loved sharing my enthusiasm for wine in a relaxed and friendly fashion so leading the wine courses at Leith’s School of Food of Wine for six years was a real career highlight for me.

In 1991 I passed the arduous exams to become a Master of Wine – a qualification so exclusive that more people have gone into Space than become MW’s.

And now, after a decade of creating award-winning wines for a major supermarket I have returned to my first love, writing and talking about wine where I bring a huge sense of fun and a passionate love of wine to my informative and engaging tasting events.
