My wife and I had the pleasure of taking part in an evening of tasting of international wines of distinction and food pairings created by the students of the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts at the campus of Assiniboine Community College in Brandon, Manitoba.
In one word – WOW! The students researched the wines and food pairings in teams. Over 200 people attended. The event was classy. It’s a real testament to the teaching staff, the vision of the administration, and the creative talent of these students to stage an event like this.
From innovative dressings, to a delightful Manitoba story about Banville & Jones Wine Co. (wine distributor and retailer in Winnipeg), to the many different tastes of lamb, oysters, prairie beef, desserts, and other taste sensations, this was an evening of shared passion, discovery and learning. When food and wine, students and appreciative learners come together like this in the renovated historic setting of the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts, we all celebrate “The Canadian Experience in Manitoba”. Great job!
