Wine Tasting at the University of St. Thomas, Crooker Center - June 19, 2013

On June 19, seventy two Shell alumni members enjoyed an outstanding evening of fine food and wine at the University of St. Thomas. Chef Christopher Garcia, a seven year veteran of New Orleans' Ritz Carlton, presented a seven course tasting �A-la-Minute�.  His magnificent creations were described by him as they were served to us along with nine outstanding Loire wines.  Each delicious course was artfully paired and beautifully presented, to go with the outstanding wines we tasted. The food co-starred with the wines to make an integrated, gourmet tasting experience. The event was sold out two weeks ahead of time.
