Hundreds of guests gathered in Midtown for the glorious tasting which had Chef Matt O’Neill of David Burke Kitchen/Craveable Hospitality taking home the grand prize for his recipe of Foie Gras Mousse, Pickled Cherries and Squab Ragu. The spectacular dish was paired with a fully body reds, which is one of the great hallmarks of the wines from the region made from the Tannat grape variety and blends made from Cabernet Sauvignon.
