The opening night of the 2012 WGBH Food & Wine Festival dazzled with 20 of Boston’s top chefs and some of the world’s finest wineries together under one roof. The chefs, which included Lydia Shire of Scampo and Locke-Ober, Jeremy Sewell of Lineage, Jody Adams of Rialto, Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger, and many more, were individually matched with one of the wineries. Drawing on the skill and creativity that rocketed them to culinary stardom, the chefs each prepared a delectable and unique small food plate to pair with a specific wine from their paired wineries.
Some of our favorites included the salt cod cake, celery root & apple salad designed by Michael Leviton of Lumiere, which paired with the 2011 Provenance Sauvignon Blanc 2011, floored us. And of course, the legendary Shire drew the largest lines of the night with her pairings of creamy lobster tails, hushpuppies, and incredibly succulent fried chicken wings, with the Le Marche wine 2006 Bucci’s “Villa Bucci” Verdicchio di Castello dei Jesi Riserva.
Here are a few photos from the spectacular evening…
