Yesterday, I went to the wine pairing dinner at The Setai that combined Australian wine and Asian food. I was struck by the imaginative, delicious pairings and the warmth and graciousness of the Chef, PR Director and wine maker- who was flown in especially from Australia. They really went all out for the evening.
The highpoints of the meal were the delicate and fresh sashimi course (punctuated by some serious heat) and the exquisite fried quail with fried radish cake. (Kind of like a potato pancake).
We sat at a communal table and had lovely seatmates. This is the kind of dinner where a single diner or a big group will be equally at ease.
It was a lovely, memorable evening. Below are some future wine dinner dates and the featured wines.
