Thursday Night: "An Homage to Fromage" at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale
Good news: The "Art of Wine and Food" tasting nights at theMuseum of Art
in Fort Lauderdale have been extended through at least December. The caterer and co-host, Chef John Paul Kline ofJohn Paul Custom Cuisine
, tells us that when they launched the monthly event a few months ago, the original audience was expected to be around 30; now they're capping it at 75.
Kline says that tonight's focus will be "An Homage to Fromage" and he'll be featuring tastes from cheese producers in Florida: Hani's Mediterranean Organics, based in Homestead, and Winter Park Dairy. The cheese is so fresh, says Kline, that he drove to Homestead to pick it up Tuesday, but it wasn't ready (so he played with the goats whose milk it is made from). The cheese will be delivered straight to the museum from the farm.
Also on the menu: a fig and cherry salad, crostinis, and goat cheese ice cream. And wine, of course! Stephanie Miskew, Certified Specialist of Wine, and author of the blog Stephanie Savors the Moment, chooses three or four for each event.
Details of the event are here: RSVP required. Tickets cost $30 and include admission to the exhibits.
