Naramata at the Bayshore

Chefs team - Westin Bayshore Hotel

On April 21st, I attended a food and wine pairing tasting that featured a large selection of wineries from all over the Naramata Bench area as well as a selection of local and Naramata region restaurants.  The ballroom tasting along with a silent auction held at the Westin Bayshore Hotel paired one or two wineries with food bites.

These were my favourite bites from the event:

Spiced Lamb Kofta

Westin Bayshore Hotel with their unique Spiced Lamb Kofta with crisp parsnip and blackberry gel paired with the Marichel Vineyard 2008 Syrah.

Pacific Striped Bass Salad on Toast points

Kitsilano Daily Kitchen with their tasty Pacific Striped Bass Salad on toast points paired with the Township 7 vineyards 2009 Sauvignon Blanc.

Garam Masala Beef Curry

Vij’s delicious and spicy Garam Masala Beef Curry with Coconut green beans paired with the Poplar Grove 2006 Legacy.

Township 7 Vineyards Barrel Tasting

Chef Kyle of Twisted Fork Bistro - Almond Tulie Cones with Lavender infused caramel mousse, fresh raspberries & maple syrup ice cream

For dessert, the best in the house was the Almond Tulie Cones with Lavender infused caramel mousse, fresh raspberries & maple syrup ice cream paired with the Kettle Valley 2009 Viognier.
