TOP SOMMELIERS GO TO BATTLE FOR WINES OF CHILE - First Annual Pop-Up Wine Bar Competition Announced Today

NEW YORK, NY (JULY, 2014)-Regional trade organization Wines of Chile will join forces with the Guild of Sommeliers to create “Wine Bar War,” an event that will challenge 20 leading sommeliers to create four pop-up Chilean wine bars. From wine selection to look and feel of the bars, the teams will have 12 hours and the resources of a 30-member team to see their bars realized at a one-day event in New York City.

Four renowned sommeliers including Morgan Harris (previously of Jean Gorges), Chris Raftery (Corkbuzz), Anna-Lisa Campos (Momofuku) and Jen Sgobbo (Wine Director, Perla/Chez Sardine/Fedora), have been appointed by the Guild as team “captains,” who in turn will each select four additional sommeliers to participate in the competition.

Based on education provided to the teams prior to the day of the event, the sommeliers will bring their concepts to life, building their bars from scratch with the help of a master carpenter, decorator, graphic designer and production crew. The day of the event, logos and wine lists will be created, bars constructed, glasses selected and wine poured for the 250 ticketed guests.

Select trade members, judges and consumer attendees will evaluate the completed wine bars on criteria such as their concept, visual appeal, storytelling and wines selected which showcase Chile’s varietal diversity. LAN Airlines, named by the World Travel Awards as the “Leading South American Airline,” will present one team with a trip to Chile and the opportunity to select the airline’s premium business class wines in 2015.¬†

"Wine Bar War is the first event of its kind, offering innovation in sommelier education, country promotional partnerships, while engaging both trade and consumers," said Marybeth Bentwood, Executive Director of Wines of Chile USA. "We look forward to seeing this gathering of the next generation of sommeliers take shape across the country, galvanizing category advocates in multiple markets for years to come."

Turismo Chile, an association that promotes travel to Chile, will join Wines of Chile, LAN Airlines and the Guild of Sommeliers as sponsors of the event. “This event will truly test the teams’ thinking both in and out of the traditional terrain of the sommelier,” said Geoff Kruth, M.S., and Chief Operating Officer Guild of Sommeliers. “And having a larger audience participate in the event provides an excellent showcase for these very talented sommeliers.”

Nothing beats a @KrispyKreme, and our #Foodiechats friends will love their new Carrot Cake and Banana Pudding Doughnuts Available at Participating Krispy Kreme Locations. You can get these doughnuts through August 31.

@KrispyKreme sent us a box of their new doughnuts, and they did not disappoint! We invited friends to our #Foodiechats Headquarters to indulge in Banana Pudding and Carrot Cake doughnuts. Our friend @Tek1231 captured his excitement in this awesome photo!

Our¬†#Foodiechats¬†theme last night was Southern Summer Classics and the questions were so much fun! One great one was “Southern Summer Classic doughnuts are great for parties. What‚Äôs your fave dessert to bring to a gathering?”¬†

Our #Foodiechats community is filled with sweet tooths and the answers from ,  and  did not disappoint!

Last night #Foodiechats Roasted some amazing Artichokes for dinner! 

Prep: 15 Minutes

Oven: 450 Degrees

Bake: 60 minutes

Chop off the bottom and the top of the Artichokes! Spread open all of the leaves to make room for your garlic and onions. 

The amount of garlic is up to you. We like roasted garlic a lot, so we added garlic around the entire Artichoke.  

We then sliced some organic red onion and evenly spread though out. 

Tip: be sure to really pour your EVOO, and add Garlic right in the center as well! It seeps in and really makes the heart taste amazing once you reach it. This is where we also add our Truffle Oil! 

Pour EVOO All over inside the Artichoke.  The EVOO that falls onto your Heavy Duty Foil, take a brush and brush the rest all over the outside of the Artichoke. 

It’s time to pour your lemon juice into the Artichoke. Take your Juice¬†squeeze thingy;) and get it all down in there. The more the better!¬†

Heavily, and I stress heavily Salt and Pepper the entire Artichoke. 

Here is¬†the KEY to your Artichoke while it Bakes: Wrap your Artichoke Twice in HEAVY Duty Foil. ¬†If you don’t have heavy duty foil, still wrap it twice, AND be sure to put the Artichokes wrapped in foil on to a baking sheet. ¬†If you don’t the oil will leak out of the bottom, and it will create a giant mess!¬†

Enjoy! 

Ingredients:

Organic Artichokes: 2 Medium Size

To know if your Artichokes are ripe, rub the leaves on each other, if it squeaks, they are ready to go.

One Garlic Bulb

Half of an Organic Red Onion

EVOO

2 Organic Lemons for Juicing. One per Artichok

Truffle Oil, Salt and Pepper
