Wine Down at Delta

Executive Chef Morgan Lechner (l) and Sous Chef (r) at Delta Vancouver Airport

On June 16th I attended a fabulous event that was hosted by Delta Hotels in the lower mainland held at the Delta Burnaby Hotel. Supporting Habitat for Humanity, this fundraiser combined tasty eats, with wines from around BC as well as a great band and delicious desserts.

This was a wine and food tasting, a silent auction and an opportunity for guests to sip, taste and mingle.

Desserts made by Pastry Chef Romeo Maghirang

My favourite menu items were the chilled “Manhattan” gazpacho, braised short rib stuffed mini yorkshire puddings and the Chicken Croquettes with black truffle puree along with all of the desserts, most of all the Red Velvet Cake made by Chef Romeo at the Delta Burnaby Hotel.  Favourite beverage was the Caramilk Liquer over ice!

I truly enjoyed this wonderful and tasty event!
